I’ve found myself day dreaming about the islands a lot lately. They are always top-of-mind, but the last couple days my salty mind has been awash in blue water and island time. Maybe because March was my last trip to el Carib, maybe because next week is the Castaway Beach Bash, either way withdrawals are setting in. All I know is this Week’s Caribbean Wrap Up is full of amazing island stories that will have you too awash in blue water day dreams as well.
