Re: Enough Doom and Gloom - Remember the Good Old Days

Our first visit back in 1997? When we took our first cruise and the last port before returning to San Juan was Phillipsburg. We signed up for the America's Cup 12 Metre Regatta and had a blast crewing Stars and Stripes in a race against Canada 2...

We had lunch on the wharf near the Regatta's office and walked down to Front Street...and the jewelry stores... When Linda asked me whether she should get a small saphire ring or a small ruby ring, I just said "Why not get both, Sweetheart?"

At that point she looked at me like she had on our wedding day two decades before, and suggested we go check out what this "Club Orient beach" was all about (and which she had said "no way in hell" to the previous evening onboard the ship)!

By the time we were on the tender headed back to the ship that afternoon
we were planning the first of our now many week(s) long stays at Club Orient.

Never did take another cruise...
