St Eustatius Feb 2013 - our Caribbean Holiday!

The Fort on the island, aka "Statia".  This is a Dutch Island in the Windward Islands, (go to Puerto Rico and turn left from the states).

Walking down the goat path from upper town to lower town.

Joe and our host Furman enjoying the view on the old slave path leading from lower town to the main town.  Statia was the first place to recognize the United States during the revolutionary war as a sovereign state!

Dinner out, Joe, Deb, Furman, Nan, and Anne - what a wonderful time we had.  The only thing missing was Sky!

View from upper town.

View from the shower, and no, I'm not kidding!

This is what I looked and felt like after walking into the crater of the volcano on the island, but is was well worth it!

Fresh caught spiny lobster on our friends back porch, it doesn't get much better than this.

Debbie, Rico and Ian, sadly on the day we left.  Ian travels from the states to the island with Anne and Furman, and Rico looks after their place on Statia when they are not there.

Good-Bye Statia, til next time!
