Goodbye Snow

I was suppose to fly to St. Maarten on Thursday but flight got cancelled because of snow. I leave tomorrow, board a sailboat and sail to tortola and a week of cruising around the BVI's. Never been there before,,,,I am really excited. I'll check in when I get back.

Better yet.
Don't miss a shotski and walking the plank on the "Willy T" off Normans Island. Observing the native wildlife can be entertaining too!

Hit the Soggy Dollar as well

If you are going to Foxy's, grab a cab and have a pain killer at the Soggy Dollar as well...worth the trip...
Enjoy

Just finished cleaning several thousand pounds of wet snow from two boats and the weather doodle is calling for another blast of winter this Tuesday and Wednesday. Damned I hate winter in the People's Republic of Maryland, USA.

Tilt a cold one for me while y'er there!

Might see you there if the blizzard that's supposed to hit Chicago doesn't ground our flight to Tortola Thursday. We'll be on a 343 Oceanis out of Sunsail.
