As you can see Arlen and Kathy have been with us twice.  The first year I think Kathy was a little hesitant to make the commitment to fly all the way to the Virgin Islands with no guarantee that there would be anyone there to meet them.  Arlen had more confidence in the skipper so they made the leap and, lo and behold, we were there.
We spent nearly two weeks cruising the US and British Virgin Islands in perfect conditions.  Our last BVI port or call was the relatively undeveloped island of Jost Van Dyke.  It was our favorite because of the setting, the people, and because of a certain photo shoot that Arlen observed very closely.
In 2001 Kathy probably had more reason to be concerned because we weren't able to communicate with folks from the Bahamas very well.  Once again they made the leap and, once again, we were there to meet them.  We cruised south from Nassau to the northern portion of the Exuma chain of islands.  They were much more primitive and less developed than even Jost Van Dyke.  They weather was beautiful, the water was beautiful and we had several beaches to ourselves (except for the resident sharks and rays of course).
