Thanks Jeff and hope you get to experience some trips like this when you are ready. Some great places to explore and experiences to be had with these boats of ours.

Well we are now in St Lucia. We left Antigua late this morning and travelled just over 200 miles south, passing Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique and some smaller islands all on the Leeward side. The wind and seas settled down and the ocean had a nice roll to it. We had no trouble keeping the boat in the water and could cruise right along. It was real cool to get a close up look at these mountainous islands, some with their peeks in the clouds. I will have some pics to share but a bit later as we are going out for dinner and check things out a bit. We do not put the boat away and fly out until Monday so have some time here. More later.

Bob

Default Guadeloupe pics

A very beautiful Island. It rains frequently over certain parts of many of these islands. We stopped for a bite to eat that we had brought along. Was neat to see a couple of wind surfers out just off the south west tip of the island.
