He, he. Let's hope Jay sees the humor in this. LOL I will see him Saturday at our final FMO fun run of the season. He will be safely positioned on the Naples pier for taking pictures but I suppose he or his camera could still end up in the water again. Hope not as once is once too many.

I am hoping he will join me again for the BVI poker run in May.

Us too - was amazing place. 2 yrs ago for us. Stayed at the Grande St. Lucia.

We rented those jet ski's and I cruised Rodney Bay looking for some go fast hardware and didn't see anything.

Thanks for sharing Bob!!

I agree - can we get it any where here in the states?

Default Heading back south

Tomorrow morning ( Friday ) I fly back to St Lucia to spend another week in the Caribbean. Marco Island friends, Hans ( OSO rockstrmkr ) and Marc ( OSO Marco Marc ) are flying in from Miami and will meet me there.
The plan is to make a day trip south into the Grenadines passing St Vincent and go as far south as Bequai before returning to Rodney Bay, St Lucia.
After that, we will start back north and spend a day or so in St Kitts and from there back to St Maarten. After another day or so in St Maarten, it will be back to the BVI where I will put the boat away again at Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor before wrapping up another phase of this adventure.
I will post more pics and commentary as I have time over the next week in the Islands.
Weather is looking great with lighter winds than usual for several more days. Let's hope it holds.
Thanks for following along.
Bob

Great shots Bob! In that pic of the four white homes on Anguilla, what are those domes on top? Funny that they all look exactly alike, I don't think I've ever seen that before.

Cat, I did not get close enough to figure that out. There were a whole mess of them built to that design so maybe just a distinguishing architectural feature.

I arrived at Rodney Bay last night about 5 hrs late. My direct flight to St Lucia got turned around over VA and we had to return to Toronto. Weather radar on the plane was out. I missed the helicopter ride up here as it does not fly after dark but Hans and Marc got to do that.
We are off to see some of the Grenadines in a while and back here tonight so will try and get some pics up. Gotta go.
