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...

He, he. Thanks Jay. I will have to see what we can do camera wise before the BVI poker run in May. I would like to know more about that setup if anyone can share their knowledge of that camera system.

Glad to hear you can join me on the BVI poker run in May, Jay. David, Nick and many others are looking forward to your return,

Bob

No time for Willy T this trip but probably next. This pic was taken at the poker run last May.

The Spanish Islands are very nice as well. Think they belong to Puerto Rico and lay between St Thomas and Puerto Rico. We passed thru there last year but did not stop. They will love it I'm sure.

Roger said if the girls jump from the top deck without a top they earn a Wiily T T-Shirt. I see no pics of this from Rogers trip though!

Bob,

Super Adventure and Trip as always..Thank you for taking us along with you once again.

You are correct the Spanish Virgin Islands as they are called are Vieques and Culebra and they are a part of Puerto Rico. they also have some very beautiful beaches and places to stay .
There are also a series of smaller islands right off the east coast of Fajardo Puerto Rico, called Palomino, Palominito and Icacos. The island of Palomino belongs to the El Conquistor Resort , but is open to everyone with a boat. The latest Johnny Depp Priates of the Caribbean movie filmed a lot on Paliminito Island. all these Island are also a part of Puerto Rico.
Great palces to visit and swim

Thank you
Jim

Here are some pics from the air when I chartered a plane to take me to San Juan, PR from St Thomas last May. As you can see, very beautiful as well.

Thanks. Jim. You and your crew would love it down there. Maybe I can convince you to ship a boat down there. Still time to catch the BVI poker run in late May.

Thanks, GL. I must learn how to do a photo capture of that screen as once it's gone, its gone. Later today I will figure out my total mileage for the trip.
