Good friends Joe and Julie Bouligny (Lafayette, LA) texted us one morning to see if we were sailing anywhere near St. Lucia because they were on a cruise ship docked there for one day only. Luck would have it that we had just arrived in St. Lucia to pick up my niece, so we were able to have lunch together and let them see our boat for a few hours.
Sharon Wright, our niece, arrived in St. Lucia mid-January for three glorious weeks sailing to ten different islands. The beautiful Pitons are in the background.

Work hard all day, play hard all night!!!
|We joined the throngs of crazy people who visit Maho Beach|
in St. Martin to take photos of the airplanes
landing right overhead. Then, when the planes take off,
you get sandblasted. Are we having fun yet?
One of our favorite ruins on the island of Nevis is the Cottle Church, built in 1824 by English planter Thomas John Cottle as the first church in the Caribbean for all people to worship together, regardless of colour or nationality. It's a story that truly inspires.
