    That’s a great picture.

    I believe it’s a lesser antillian iguana.

    I forgot to post this picture last week. After I parked in the pay lot my wife waved me to her side of the car. There were several crabs on the ground between the lot and the quay. I managed to take...

    Dennis, I am in complete agreement with that statement. My post was not a glass half full or empty. More maybe a wistful longing for what was.

    That is another good one. The reason we didn’t get there on this past trip is other than our first day, the two times we went to Saline in the morning, the beach was covered in weed and we left. If...

    Re: "Return-Trip-After-12-Years!" Report

    Nice report. Agree that you need to do this more often than every 12 years. Make it at an annual thing until the kids say stop and then you have to leave them at home. ;)
