You are right. That would be Ron Joyce. i think he takes the boat up to his place in Nova Scotia in the summer.

On our return to St Maarten from St Bartt's we stopped in at Phillipsburg before returning to Simpson Bay Marina. Very nice beach front and boardwalk setup to cater to the cruise ship trade.

All being well the next set of picture will be posted at Antigua.

Rick is another Canadian from Barrie, ON. He has an interesting life chartering his boat out. He shared a lot of knowledge of the Islands with me that has been helpful. I do plan on being back in the BVI for the poker run in late May.

Thanks Johnny. I wrap up this part of the trip on Monday when I will fly home from St Lucia. I will return mid April for another 10 days and there is a good chance I will be back up in St Maarten in late April so if you are following you just might catch up w me on some island. Would be nice to meet.

Bob
