******** SINGLES *********NO KIDS ********

126 people, mostly all traveling solo ---- on a tall ship in the Caribbean,,

Embarkation St. Lucia, on to Bequia, Mayreau, St. Vincent and back to St. Lucia. (the Grenadines)

The Polynesia alternates between a southern cruise (as ours) and a northern cruise (Martinique, Guadeloupe, Dominica) and this was the southern week. I was told, or under the impression that we were going north. However the captain,, CAPTAIN MAX, said that if the route had been north, he would have changed it to south, because of Hurricane Debbie.. We did get some residual wave action from it I believe, as the water was rougher than normal I'm told.. (did they know what they were talking about ?? well it gives me a good story to tell anyway)

It was a kind of a longggggggg day getting there. I'd played in a golf tourney up in Wasaga Beach the day before and got home late, quite fun, I won Ladies longest drive !!! (a very impressive shot which just happened to be watched by about 7 other people !) I was up at 5:30 - flew into Chicago, wait wait wait, flew off to Puerto Rico wait wait wait, then finally on a little PROP plane and zooooom - off we went.

Alas - I was finally there.. met a few people on the last flight and in the airport that were going to the Polynesia as well. It was becoming more of a reality at this point. One fella, Mike had been on Windjammer cruises already,,,,,,, cool. this sounds like its gonna be fun.. Met Holly from Houston, Susan from Colorado, another Susan and after we signed that we were there --- onto a van.. and off to the Poly... We got closer and could see the ship ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh it IS real!! What a beautiful sight it was after such a long day, like something out of a pirate tale ! Then we got out of the van.. And there was a band playing music on the ship --- you could hear the tunes !!!! I wanted to dance....and hey,, a dance floor, and a bar just as you get on the ship.. how cool... I checked in and got my room assignemnt, cabin 9. I took my stuff to the cabin, (no locks) dropped it and went to the bar !!!! My cabin mate had already boarded, as her things were there - and altho I had thought I would "shower first" - I then thought NAHHHHH
