St. Lucia

We woke up in the early hours of Saturday morning, hoisted the sails and were on our way to St Lucia by 3am.

We had a wonderful few weeks exploring the island, but it was time to slowly start making our way back up the island chain and home to the BVI.

Our break in Colorado

Gavin had a few weeks with no charters booked in so we had decided last minute to take a break from the islands and head over to Colorado to visit my brother in Denver. It was a fairly long journey to get there, especially with a 9 month old, but after a ferry ride to… Continue reading Our break in Colorado
