Default Early May

The end of April is upon us and I've got to go back to the islands for a few, well ten, days. Wed I'm flying to St Lucia, seeing the St Lucia distillery Friday, sailing to Martinique with a friend, meeting Martin Cate in Martinique, visiting a few distilleries, then heading back to St Lucia for a few days before returning back to the US.

Hopefully I'll have a few minutes here and there to check in and post some pictures when I get back.

How badly I wanted to go to Martinique this year! And St. Lucia is another hopeful destination. It will be great to hear about this trip Ed. I am looking forward to new info as to what is happening on Martinique, what distilleries are producing what, etc. I imagine there have been many changes since your last book.

It's been too long and now I'm working harder than ever and don't have enough time to make even a few posts per day. But that is going to change. There have been a lot of changes on Martinique, but the bigger changes have taken place elsewhere in the islands.

I'll be posting new pics and updated information as soon as I return, I hope.

Tomorrow, Friday, I'll be flying back to the US from St Lucia. It's been a good trip including catching a nice kingfish on the sail back from Martinique yesterday. Hopefully I'll be able to post some pictures online over the weekend.

Since we know that you're 8 feet 7 inches tall, Ed -- that's a big kingfish!

I hope you smoked that big boy (the fish).
