Did a second cruise this winter and wouldn’t you know that it was leaving San Juan and on the same ship again, the Celebrity Summit; now I could replace some of my lost photo's from the last trip.  This time my daughter Robyn came with me.  And as usual the best part of the trip was all the new friends we met.  Two highlights were being able to race a 1987 America Cup Yacht in St Maarten against that years winner “the Stars and Stripes” and to try SCUBA diving in St Thomas.
