Northern Lights looked to be a charter. They had all the toys out and seemed to be a large family or group. Now that is the way to travel !! It was actually rather small compared to many of the yachts in the harbor at Atlantis.

Tomorrow I will be confirming who will accompany me on the next leg of the journey. Hint .....lets just say the pictures will be awesome !!

That would be Jayboat. Jay can stay with me from Friday till sometime into the following week which should put us in the Islands. Hoping he can catch some great pics along the way.

Also thanks to all the well wishes and kind comments. Thanks as well to dammmagnum, cowisl, and Pete280 for their helpful tips.

I got married on Luquillo Beach in PR (near Fajardo), spent a couple days in Vieques back when the Navy was still there, I bet it has changed a lot, this was around 96, swimming in the biolumenescent bay was really cool, I have a college roomate that lives in fajardo if you need anything when your there, he has lived there for 20 yrs so he has a lot of hook ups.

If I ever win the lottery, that I never play, then I might be able to afford such a lavish vacation, but till then, I'm content with where I'm at.

Not really a Montreal fan but am cheering for the only CAN team left in the playoffs. Can't stand the Leafs as they think they can sell out every night ( and they do ) with icing such a mediocre team. I like a winner and that will never be the Leafs. Habs have got this far by a bunch of average guys working hard and I like that.

That is just the base rate. Usually fuel and lots of additional charges on top of that !!

Woo-hoo! Can't wait for this one, Bob!
Sounds like we will have plenty of room in the boat for how many bikinis?
