June 1997

The four of us (Andy, Maria, Christopher and Diana) made this trip with Curtis Collins and his friend of the moment, Kathleen.  We flew to Pointe-a-Pitre from Philadelphia.   Curtis and Kathleen flew in from New Hampshire and Texas, respectively.  The route we followed is shown in red on the chart.  You can visit our ports of call by rolling your cursor across the map to Marie Galante, Dominica and Iles de Saintes and clicking when you see the hand.
