Where the heck are we?

We are technically in the what are called the "Windward Islands".  We breezed through the "Leeward Islands" (from Puerto Rico to Dominica ) and we are about to zip on down the Grenadines (which are actually a sub-chain of islands in the "Windward" group).

This whole island chain from the Bahamas  to Grand Cayman to the Turks & Caicos is called the Antilles...When we were in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico we were in the *Greater* Antilles and this particular chain is called the *Lesser* Antilles...

...which is also known as the West Indies.


You have got to be kidding...We're lucky to even know where we are with all these overlapping island chain names!

We're in the Caribbean.  We know that for sure.

And it is awesome.

PS.  I had to Wikipedia every single one of those chains to get this post right, they are that confusing.

Hello from Exuma! Doesn't it seem far away now? Remember when you lost your dinghy? Oh, you are so past that and doing great. I'm a little jealous I admit. Can't wait to see the Grenadines through your eyes. Fair winds! Thanks for all the entertainment! Catherine

Britt and Scott,

I can certainly tell you where you are.... you are in our hearts!

Thank you for such a wonderful escape, until we can pursue the same as you.
