  • Marigot & PhilipsburgWe have drifted in and out of sleep, punctuated by the Hellfrog's sinister serenade. It continues to be hot and still. The satellite view of the region shows showers in the area, but that's nothing new in the tropics. Posted by Sea'n'Sun in Red Sky at Night | Jun 26, 2010
  • Whole Lot a Bakin' Goin' OnSunday morning. It's hot. Really hot. And still. The usually reliable trade winds are taking the weekend off and the sky is hazy with Saharan dust.

  • SXM 2010: In the Jumble, the Mighty JumbleThe run up to a vacation is a big part of the fun of the trip itself. For me, the anticipation of an event can almost overshadow the real thing.

  • Day 7: Winding DownThe end of a vacation is always a bittersweet experience. On the one hand, you hope you’ve wrung every drop of fun and relaxation out of each waking hour. On the other hand, you’re ready to get back Posted by Sea'n'Sun in Red Sky at Night | Nov 6, 2009
