I'm on the boat at the nav table and there's 2 inches of snow on the deck above and on the hatches. The snow is really coming down.

Of course, I'm thinking about the warm sunny places I could be right now. It gets you thinking.

Where would you like to be right now? Be specific so you'll know if/when you eventually get there. If you are there already, say that too (and congratulations).

If I could be sailing right now, somewhere in the Caribbean, no place specific.

If I can't be sailing, then I have a little place I visit in Jamaica that I'd like to be watching the gals play volley ball with a beer.

It's cold here, and we're getting MORE snow over the weekend. :(

The Virgin Islands. The lee side of St. John. (Or was it St. Thomas?)

I'll trade places with you, since I'd rather be on my boat than sitting here working... :)

It's 77F here on HHI at the moment, winds 10-15 kts out of the WSW. I'm heading down to the boat in a few minutes... He-he-he...

Here in Tampa it is 76 degrees and sunny. The problem is that the wind has only been around 5 kts for the past few days. I have off today, so might still give it a try. If the wind doesn't cooperate, I have some stuff to do on the boat anyway. Much better than being at work.

Normally, I'd tell you to bite me...but you might take that as an invitation... :) so, just stop gloating... we're looking at 8-12" of snow here this afternoon.

I've done the US and Brit Virgin Islands, but I think I'd rather be in the Society Islands right now in the South Pacific.

Alternatively, and more realistic, I'd like a 3 day weather window to sail to the Isle of Wight tomorrow or Saturday for dinner at the Folly Inn and hiking on the country paths of the islands. We'll do it, if it's isn't cold and raining and F9.

SNOW,

Is a 4 lettered word!

I would like to be in the Philippines sailing over 7,100 islands that very much resemble the Exumas. Only the people are a lot smaller, more brown, and every thing is extremely cheap! I would base myself out of Saml during typhoon season, and gunkhole the rest of the year......i2f

I wish I were...

On a broad reach from the Bitter End to Anagada.:) That's where I was almost a year ago to the day. Family, friends, Christmas lights hanging from the mast, it was a great vacation.:) This year I'm looking out at the snow falling. :( Monday the days start getting longer. Spring is right around the corner:rolleyes: (or so I wish).:(

Sitting in the hammock outside Foxy's with a pain killer.

I'll be replacing the head and sanitation hoses on Caribbean Run this weekend. Got a bottom job and an unexpected exhaust system from the mixing elbow back in the past two weeks. (it's 78 now - will be 40 on Sunday)

Christmas Island!!

Let's get away from sleigh bells, let's get away from snow
Let's make a break some Christmas, Dear, I know the place to go
How'd ya like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island?
How'd ya like to spend the holiday away across the sea?
How'd ya like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island?
How'd ya like to hang a stocking on a great big coconut tree?

How'd ya like to stay up late, like the islanders do?
Wait for Santa to sail in with your presents in a canoe.
If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island
You will never stray for everyday
Your Christmas dreams come true.

Or, failing that, I'd like to be where my avatar is - at the helm of a boat on a pleasant day.
