Between cruises throughout much of the Caribbean, we left Scarlet for extended periods in Martinique, Antigua and Tortola. Then it was on to Bermuda and more winters in the Azores and Lagos. From there we harbor-hopped to Tangier, Morocco, and onward to the Balearics, wintering over in Santa Eulalia, Ibiza. The next jump was to Menorca, Corsica and Sardinia, and onward to Gaeta, Italy, near Naples. Between sailing trips, I continued to return to my rental house in Kittery, Maine (which the owners use during the summer), and to my publishing business.
