In the Fall of 1998 Olina and I took our children out of school, and sailed to the Bahamas in our 30-foot Dufour Arpège “Sea Scout.”  There were no blogs back then, but I do have some pictures. You can click on them to enlarge. The voyage was a source of inspiration for my novel “The Smuggler of the Exumas.”
