If you Google "Salt Cay, Bahamas" and select the satellite map view, off the coast of Nassau you'll see an impossibly tiny green and brown spoon-shaped strip of land in a turquoise sea. Zoom closer, and coconut palms and white sand beaches appear. Closer still, and you can see the blue roofs of...

I love to look at those giant cruise ships, a city at sea with Broadway shows, shopping malls, rain forests and water parks and outside cabins with patios.  I saw them at the cruise dock in Nassau, Bahamas.  My cruise ship looked like a tender next to them; but my ship had the front dock...

Lady Ace was a soot black standard poodle who ran around the deck of our 70 foot (when bragging) ketch-rigged sailboat as though it was the Indie 500.  Sometimes she would come to a sliding stop; we always feared she might slide right off the deck into the black, murky waters of an unforgiving sea...

The Swindler is a fast-moving, hard-hitting account of a swindler who, with his batch of subalterns, ran a Ponzi scheme in Key West and elsewhere. The tale is so realistic and convincing that you can hardly believe that it didn’t really happen and that the authoress is not in there somewhere,...

A couple of our kids gave us a 5 day Bahamas cruise as an anniversary present. I'm not going to bother tying it into writing, although there was plenty of fodder aboard. I just wanted to share a bit of the cruise experience.   After an uneventful drive to Port Canaveral, we found two lines of...

Hurricane season evokes memories that seem as close as yesterday.  I was reminded this morning by an acquaintance who sent me an email about her sister's experience sailing solo in the Bahamas in 1988.  That was the year I was "Lady Ace" as I tumbled off my bunk each morning to...
