Betty left with her partner, John, from Sarasota on a 35' Morgan, traveled south through the Caribbean, purchasing a CT47 in Grenada. After 7 years, John left to live on land again and she single-handed the boat for the next three years. Betty now lives in Florida with Sloopy, her Trinidad cat who probably doesn't miss the boat as much as her human does. The author's pictures of the islands are available as slide shows on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/IslandFeverCruising
