Well, I can honestly say life is never boring!  :goofy:
I've just met a couple from Europe who are in the flower business. We were discussing where we were going and when I told them Guatemala, they said that more flowers come from Guatemala than anywhere else in the world. I'm going to have to practice, practice, practice my flowers. So looking forward to painting exotic flowers and the Mayan ruins.   :yippee: I might never get by the Cosmos lesson!!  :2funny:  :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Hello All ... Arrived in Roadtown, Tortola, BVI early Sunday morning. Now in Soper's Hole (historic Pirate's lair) and will be checking out of BVI this morning and moving over to USVI. Internet is terribly slow here so will have to see what's been going on later.
Cheers, Val

I hope you are enjoying good sailing weather.   :boat:

I keep going to Google maps to track your voyage.

Be safe. 

Hopefully, you'll come into some good internet connection soon.   :)

Lillian, the weather has been marvellous the past few days, I have a couple of new sunsets at sea photos to post and a sunrise as we entered into the BVI. I will try and post them this evening.

Sapphirelynn I will definately post some florals for you, there are many beautiful plants and flowers, will have to dig out a few of those until we get to the 'really' exotics!

Internet here in St. John (USVI) is better ... so will try to post the photos.

 :wave:
Cheers, Val

Val glad to hear you are having fun. The weather here is sunny, but the wind today is gusting at 40 mph. So i have to be careful when i go out that i don't get blown away.  :2funny:
