Melissa & Dave - Adventures at Sea

We Could Walk This Fast

We had thought that the last three days of the trip would be easier than the first nine.  Alas, we are heading directly into the wind and waves and hence are lucky to be able to make 3 knots good towards Antigua.  At that speed we could have walked there just as fast!

As we pass by the islands of the Caribbean, we begin to realize just what a different world this is.  Having spent so much time in Central America, we expected the Caribbean to be much like what we have seen to date.  But this was not the case.  As we approached the islands at night, the sky was lit up in the distance – a tribute to how much civilization is out here.  As we got closer and could see life on the islands, it became clear that there is so much more wealth here.  Nice cars, nice houses, and not nearly the poverty we have become accustomed to seeing.
