That's a Good Question Mike

08 April 2010 | Stocking Island Exuma
My good friend, crew and dockmate Mike D. left a comment on this blog.
"Looks like a great place!
What has been your favorite so far and why?"

Mike, You asked a good question and one that I think deserves an answer.
The problem is, I think it would take more than a few words in this blog to be able to describe it all. Maybe over a Rum or two. You buying?

Since the beginning of this trip, every time I end up some place new, I have always asked myself "what make THIS place so special, what makes this place the place where people stay for long periods of time?". I think Don K. heard me say that when we got to George Town last week. Whats this place all about? Is this place just a pass though on the way to somewhere else or is it a destination?
The more I travel though out the Caribbean and now though the Bahamas, the answers are getting easier to find.
The locals make it a big part of the equation - whether they think the boaters are a pain in the butt and someone to be exploited (wow that is a role reversal) or do they welcome us as part of their community (Floriduh is a good example)
The sense of community the boaters have amongst themselves.
Obviously the weather.....
The difficulty in getting there.
The hassle of day to day living.... supplies, services, the anchor gonna hold? INTERNET!!??
And to tell the truth... your own reason for being "out there".
So, can I give you a list of places I have been to and list them in order of preference... I wish I could..... I have loved them all, but all for different reasons.... although I have to say that the BVI's are on the bottom of my list.
I probably didn't answer your question Mike, but that's OK, it will give me a reason to stop by and drink your Rum.
