50 Islands - in an Incredible Caribbean Adventure

In the last 3 months or so, we've wandered south from the Virgin Islands, all the way to Grenada - hopping from island to island - and then - back north again. 

We learned to sail. 
Lived on 5 different ships. 
Stayed in 20 different cottages or guesthouses. 

Visited almost 50 islands, some of them several times. 
I don’t even know how many countries. 

Used 4 different currencies, (still have unidentified leftover coins from all).
3 different power adaptors. 
Drove on the left. And on the right.
And usually the middle of VERY narrow roads.

Shared roads with all manner of things. 

Met such a variety of odd characters-!
Opened new doors, found new ideas. 

And now - time to return to New Mexico.

We fly an 8-seater WinAir from Saba to St.Maarten. 
Then take LIAT St.Maarten to Tortola
Taxi to the ferry dock, then ferry Tortola to St.Thomas. 

Amazingly, all connections go smoothly. 
Let’s see, that makes 4 countries in one day. 

"At the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparkling."

It was a heck of an adventure.
