A beautiful Flamboyant tree in Nassau.
We saw our first green flash of the voyage right after this picture was taken. We saw our second on the last night of the voyage!
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Here I am on the city wall in Old San Juan.
I love the look of the child's eyes in this photo!
This photo of a man sitting on a stoop in Old San Juan won an Honorable Mention in the voyage photography contest.
It was a hot, humid day in Old San Juan, and this dog was trying to catch what breeze he could in the window....
A cemetery in Old San Juan through the city wall.
I loved this door in Old San Juan.
Brimstone Hill Fortress, the Gibraltar of the West Indes. It stands over 800 feet above sea level and commands a view of the entire St. Kitts coastline.
A view from Brimstone Hill with St. Eustatius in the distance.
Here I am on top of Brimstone Hill.
The Cathedral in Basseterre, St. Kitts.
A conductor on the St. Kitt's railroad, supposed to be the only railroad in the Caribbean. It is an old sugar plantation line.
These are photos from our trip whale watching in Dominica. Here is the intrepid whale watching crew!
A friend took this picture of me looking over the bow of the whale watching catamaran.
A female Sperm Whale diving about 20 yards from our boat!
See my YouTube video of the whale here! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMqpV84jLic
This is Tita, who made me some of the best West Indian Beef Patties and Chicken Roti I have ever tasted! Ummmm....
Trafalgar Falls, Dominica.
A climber rappelling down Trafalgar Falls.
A hummingbird silhouetted against Trafalgar Falls.
This is a tree that fell and crushed a schoolbus during Hurricane Ivan. I am told that no one was injured.
A church in Bridgetown, Barbados.

West Indian Patties and Roti in Bridgetown. I wish I could find these in the U.S.!!

The smiles in Grenada were amazing! The people of Grenada were some of the nicest I have ever met.

Another fantastic smile of Grenada!
Trinidad and Tobago
I just love these two pictures of the same bird at the Asa Wright Nature Center in Trinidad. Notice the second picture where it is sticking it's tongue out in the rain!
Our guide through the rainforest at Asa Wright Nature Center. Soon after I took this photo the heavens opened up and drenched everyone!
A costume from the Trinidad Carnival, one of the biggest and best yearly celebrations in the world.
Fire limbo dancer in the Trinidad cultural show that night.
The diving in Bonaire is some of the very finest in the world. There are dive shops everywhere!

A beautiful sunset in Bonaire.
Our ship, the M/V Explorer, at night in Bonaire.
The Hato Caves, Curacao - amazing limestone caverns that are very rare in the Caribbean.
A view of Willemstad, Curacao.
Three Venezuelan fishermen on their boats at the floating market in Curacao. I love their faces.

Dancing pole inside! LOL!!
I'm waiting for the Goon Lee Fried Chicken chain to take off across the South. "Tum's recipe please, and make it extra crispy!"

The Baby Natural Bridge in Aruba. The large one, right next to it, fell into the ocean a few years ago.
The volcanic windward coastline of Aruba being pounded by waves.
Cairns erected by travelers on the far side of Aruba. They are supposed to bring wishes and good luck.
The far side of Aruba reminded me of the moon. There had been no rain in Aruba for the 2 years prior to our visit. Good thing they have invested in the second largest desalination plant in the world, which makes fresh water straight from the sea.
A view of Aruba from the top of the Casibari Rock Formations. Notice the cacti dotting the landscape. There is also a radio station on the summit of the peak in the distance. The station DJ/operator must climb the stairs to the top each day from his home at the base! Talk about an exercise program!
A visit to Aruba Aloe, an aloe plantation and production facility.
California Lighthouse, Aruba. It is named after the U.S. ship California, which sank off the point around 1908, two years before the lighthouse was constructed.
View from the Italian Restaurant near California Lighthouse.
A tiny island near our dock in Aruba. It looks like a fun place to spend an afternoon, just be sure to take your snorkel for high tide!
Wooden door on a bus.
A Stretch VW!
Tilt Shift Photography
These are some photos I did on the trip using Tilt Shift Photography. Tilt Shift makes the photo appear that it is a picture of a model, like a scene you may see on a model train layout.
This is our ship, the M/V Explorer, docked in Curacao. I love how it looks like an exhibit in Legoland!
Laundry in the rural northeast corner of St. Kitts.
A beach in Grenada.
A fishing boat anchored off Grand Anse Beach in Grenada.
