"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Merengue, an Island Packet 27, and her crew left Milwaukee, WI on September 2, 2006 for an extended voyage. Merengue sailed through the Great Lakes, Erie Canal, Hudson River, and down the Intracoastal Waterway to Florida. She crossed the Gulf Stream to the Bahamas, sailed through the Turks and Caicos, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico. She is currently exploring the islands of the Caribbean.
This past week was carnival in French St. Martin. The parade was much smaller than those we had seen in Dutch Sint Maarten and Grenada possibly because it was one of several parades held throughout the week. Why have one parade when you can have many!
Don't you love the looks on these faces as they watch the parade. The kid on the left thinks the music's too loud, the kid in the middle has a look of disbelief (mom, what's that lady wearing?) and the one on the right, well he's just bored.
Here's a little taste of St. Martin Carnival 2010.
