I needed a break, a real break.  This is the first vacation in years where I am going on a cruise to just sit back and relax.  And it worked, that’s what I did...sort of.  I still worked out most days, danced until 3am some nights, went kayaking in St Thomas, sailing and snorkeling in Barbados, zip-lining in St. Lucia, raised the sails again in St. Kitts and hiked the only rainforest in the US in Puerto Rico. 

I also sent myself on a photography mission.  the subject this time...Butterflies in St. Thomas and in St. Maarten.  It turned out so well that I have since visited the Butterfly Exhibit at the Smithsonian and will soon visit the Butterfly Garden at Brookside Gardens.  Those pictures will be on another page.


The value of our life is not solely measured by its length, but also by the depth of our hearts.

And breadth of our experiences.  And indeed the heights that we achieve.
