Well, it's officially that time of year but I hope Dr.Gray and his hurricane forecast will be proven wrong and it will be a better (calmer) H-Season than predicted.

Tropical Depression Number One was issued this morning, Saturday June 10, 2006 at 08:00am. What a way to start the day.

Well, at least it should provide some motivation to get our buns in gear and get out of Dodge :-)

I realize that our part of the Northeastern Caribbean (Virgin Islands and St. Maarten / St. Martin) has been relatively calm for the last couple of years, while the previously safe areas farther south have been hit, but this summer we are planning to go south. Just feels right. We want to visit Martinique, where we made our transatlantic landfall ten years ago, and explore the Grenadines.
