Your site, writing, photography, and composition are all first class. Cheers to you.

BTW, I recently escaped Gidget's home town in So Cal with similar perspective and objectives as you! I bought a boat in Abaco, Bahamas and will slowly drift in your direction over the next few seasons. It's nice to know that there are kindred spirits out there and I hope our courses cross one day.
Thank you so much for your message. We are now in St Croix and if you ever make it out that way just send us a message.

Thanks to everyone of their kind words and support.
We have started posting about what happened after accident (living in the village, what we did with the boat, getting back to Cartagena, transporting Gidget, immigration etc) The first of three parts is now up

Re: California to the Virgins

I just stumbled on to this thread. What a story!!! I'm glad you are all OK. If you see a boat that you are interested in on St Thomas I would be glad to take a peak and potentially save you a plane ticket. Good luck.

Will do. I was traveling over there once a week during much of 2011. I'm sure I will be going back again for something in the future and will let you know.

Yeah, she didn't like being carried or hoisted up so she taught herself to climb ladders.
