& remembering Windjammer Barefoot Cruises
August 2009: Newfoundland and Labrador. This is one of the most fantastic, memorable trip we have ever taken! The crew and ship are superb, and the scenery and wildlife are even better. The local residents were friendly and excited to see us! The summer itineraries for Caledonia in the Canadian Maritimes are something really special. Forget summer hurricanes in the south.. Go North!!!!
The menu system will be updated soon. Until them, check out the trip report and pictures here:
March 2009: I have updated my Caribbean trip report and have added 200 photos. Finally!
SV Caledonia, sailing for Canadian Sailing Expeditions is a beautiful ship, that is sailing waters I want to be on. The company has a philosophy of eco-tourism and exploration that appeals to me. This is my new favorite home! I will continue building this site, and revitalize the WJBC section. We sail next on Caledonia on a 7 day trip Grenada to St. Lucia in January 2010.
All original photos were shot at 10 megapixels (a very few at 4MP), which means that they are of high enough resolution that they can be blown up to 11x17 or larger, and produce a sharp image. If you desire a photo, please contact me.
Windjammer Barefoot Cruises is no more. I run across many people who are not aware of this. The end of WJBC was ugly, to be polite. Folks were left on the dock, and hundreds of people lost lots of money on pre-paid trips and the LaMer. Many folks have bitter memories of the end. But many of us have nice memories of the times before that last year. I, for one, chose to remember the good times, and compartmentalize and seal the bad times. As it so happens, Karen and I sailed what I think was the last full week of Windjammer, sailing Mandalay out of Panama to the Kuna Yala with Captain Casey. This was the first week of September, 2007. As we disembarked at the end of the week at the dock at Colon 2000, the Captain and Crew lined up on the dock and shook the hand of each passenger as they left, with Amazing Grace playing full blast in the background. They knew the end had come, and the crew was classy to the end.
