Well it seems like the prayers worked, and we have made it through hurricane season with only two scares and no scratches. Puerto Rico has been an amazing host. Its beauty and diversity are a natural wonder. If you haven't been out here you are missing out.
Now, it's time to move on. We are so excited about the landscape that lays ahead. We will be in the famous Virgin Islands. Debatably, the best cruising grounds in the world. There are 9 major islands, and hundreds of smaller ones. Every island is a short sail from the next. No more long, strenuous passages, you can always see the next destination from wherever you are, and the waters are deep enough to sail. I can almost hear the steel drums playing in the distance, the beach parties, and festivals, like "Jump Up", rum punch, and calypso sauce! Can you do the Limbo...with a drink in your hand? This is the best season of the year.
I've also noticed that a ferry boat back to Puerto Rico from Vieques or Culebra is only 2 dollars. This makes visiting us very affordable. Just fly into San Juan (super affordable), take a shuttle to the Fajardo ferry terminal, and we'll pick you up at either Vieques, or Culebra. Yeah, this is an invitation! We'll be in the Virgins through the end of February, if not longer.
Here are a few images right off the web;

Everything is better when you're in good company, so give us a shout, and let us know when you'd like to come out.
