I’m just letting you guys and gals know I’ll be sailing the eastern Caribbean on the Emerald Princess for the next 8 days, so don’t think I’ve dropped of the face of the earth when you don’t see any posts from me for a while.

I’ll try to bring everyone some tropical driftwood as a souvenir. :-)

If you make it to the Grand Bahama Island you have got to go to Blackbeards Tavern, The Junkanue Club, and go down to the docks and barter for some really great African made sculptures and beaded necklaces, not to mention the Rum is about or at least was $7.00.00 a fifth. We also rented little Honda 50s and road all over the island. Great way to see how the locals live. Great time and cheap. They even had a KFC. Have a Crakey time mate!!!! Oh yea, don’t forget the Grand Bahama Island Casino, it was a blast. We stayed in the Dolphin Hotel.

Sounds like a blast Charlie! I’m sure they have wood turning classes on the ship, right? Or are you just taking your lathe with you?
