I wanted to shake up my life and go sailing (or learn on the job, so-to-speak) so headed to Florida to crew on a catamaran. This is about how it went or, rather, didn't - and my life since. Hopefully it will lead to a catamaran on the clear aqua blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, watching the sunset, a coconut rum and coke in hand. You must START AT THE BEGINNING of the blog, April 2009, to get the whole story...

I just found something on YouTube tonight and had to share.

I drove this road almost every day we were on Tortola last February. It was the road from Long Bay Resort to the house, Elm Villa, that I rented. At the end of the video you can see a fork in the road. Our driveway was another 100 yards or so up on the right. If you took the fork to the left, you went down a huge hill to Cane Garden Bay.

I drove this route back from the wedding at NIGHT. TWICE. Because we left without Ashleigh's dress and so Shonah and I went back for it.

Great memories. Crazy hills! You can read about my first attempt at driving Tortola here. It continues here.

Here's my Amazon Store called Sandra's Selections, full of my favourite things and constantly updating it as I discover more fav's. It's more for fun than anything as I've never made a cent off of it.
