Hunting U-boats with Papa in the Caribbean
Off we go into the wild (azure) blue yonder.

Heading on vacation Sunday. Sun and fun. Sadly, we won't be hunting U-boats with Ernest Hemmingway as in the picture below... but Sue and I will be enjoying all other manner of toasty, wet goodness. The photo below is from a recent book that tells the story of Hemingway's presumably conning the US Navy out of some guns and gasoline to pursue his drinking and fishing and fun in the sunning.

Our itinerary follows the map at left, first with the red loop and second with the blue loop. Saling on the 950-foot long Caribbean Princess with about 3100 other pax, along with a crew of about 1150 men and women.
Counting down the hours now....
