Wish I knew you were headed past Dominica Bob. I have a friend who lives there. He could have given you the guided tour.
You might remember him from the early poker run days. Has an outboard velocity called Thin Lizzie.

1) Marigot Harbour

2) There was only this one tight slip available in Marigot Harbour where we had lunch. The owner of this yacht to my port side was screaming and yelling " You can't fit that thing in here !! " My response - " Just relax and watch ". He never said another word. LOL

3) Grand Peton's in the distance.

4) James went in for a swim at Teton's

5) Tonight's sunset just as we finished up our part day on the local waters.

Yes Eric, Grand Peton's. They are quite a sight.

Thank You Bobthebuilder. What a great trip so far. I can't wait to see the rest of it.
Reading about your travels and seeing all the pics is truly awesome. I think you are the envy of most of us. You truly know how to enjoy life.

Thank you Griff and others for the kind words. I'm glad you are enjoying following along and maybe some of you will be inspired to one day do this sort of thing. If I can help any of you out, please let me know.

This phase of my adventure will soon come to an end as we fly home tomorrow afternoon. The boat is secure and put away in a first class marina ( IGY - Rodney Bay ) until my return sometime in mid April. When I come back, if time and weather permit, I would like to go another 70 to 100 miles south to see the Grenadines in the area of Bequia before turning around and heading back north. I will pick up Montserrat and St Kitts on the way north and then go to BVI either via St Maarten or Saba. That will all get figured out later. Again, thanks.

Bob
