On St Kitts , what was the avgerage . temp there. Also would you take a familly vacation there this time of year , what else is there to do around there . from the looks of your pics and comments the place looks awesome. Thanks for any tips.

Wellcrafted
Not sure of the temps but never too hot or cold. Maybe 80 at the most. It seemed a bit warmer than usual as trade winds this week are lighter than normal.I would bring the fam here without a doubt. I highly recommend the Marriott as it's probably the best on the Island and thought it tio be fairly reasonable. Rainy season starts late May so no later than that for sure. We ate at an awesome restaurant called Boat House on the south end of the Island overlooking Nevis. Best steak I've ever had. It seems to be clean and safe so it should be considered.

Bob, I think OSO needs to create an adventure forum just for you.

Thanks again for sharing your latest journey through such a beautiful part of the planet- enjoyable reading!

Hey- I think the guys at OL have a solution for you re the camera...

Those cameras are trick! If Bob continues to share these great adventures, I would think he owes his audience at least 3 of these mounted fwd, mid, and aft. If Bob were still in his 30s........well, maybe one below too! No offense Bob......

Have you stopped by Willy T's? Is this in the area you have been thru? My buddy from town just got back from a 10 day cruise on a 36 sailboat. He goes down every year and rents one with his family. He is a powerboater! He was talking about the Spanish Islands.
