Time for a vacation. Four classmates from our Dental School class of 79 and I head down to the British Virgin Islands.  We’re ready to sit down over the local beverage and discuss thirty-five years of our profession……and retirement!

SV J-Pharoum

First, we rent one of these–big and roomy and idiot-proof.  But Glen is an expert sailor and I’ve a broken leg.  The doctor said lots of ice so I’m not going to disappoint!

Bay 2

Ah!  The serene evenings at anchor.  This is much preferred over beating down Chatham Straits in Alaska taking 35 knots on the nose.


Meet Dennis, Jeff, Glenn, Jim and your’s truly.  We didn’t have a bad meal either–fresh catch every night.


This is the typical view from the helm…..

Water spout


Check out this water spout.  We had two days of real sailing weather and Glen did a grand job.  And I didn’t disappoint my doctor either…..  Stay tuned.
