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 found this song on YouTube today. It's by KapEye, a popular entertainer on Tortola who is only there in the high season and usually performs at Myett's in Cane Garden Bay. Listening to the song today has really helping to get me in the mood for my trip. I ended up buying this song and four others of his on iTunes this afternoon.

I was really hoping I could catch him while I was there in a few weeks, but his time on the island for this season ends at the end of March. I am a little disappointed and it makes me wonder how many other entertainers and restaurants will be closed because it is the off season. I hope not many.

Have a listen and see if it doesn't make you want to tap your toes.

Here's another video from Tortola celebrating a birthday of someone I hope to meet while I am there; he's reputed to be a lot of fun and a very cool guy. He was a producer in LA - one of his shows was Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, so we just might have something to talk about. Anyhow, I love the bit in the middle that shows driving the crazy roads of Tortola that I feared so much but came to love. The video is set to the same KapEye song.

I love the line in the song "Try to explain it; words don't come near." So true.
