Love Us

As we sailed through the Bahamas to Turks and Caicos and the Dominican Republic, then south of Puerto Rico and through the Virgin Islands into the Eastern Caribbean, and all the way to Grenada and back home to Massachusetts, we chronicled our journey in postcards. Here, I share them with you. The format will appear more like a travel journal than a traditional blog, as I have dated each post with the date the postcard was actually written. Go all the way back to the very first postcard from Cape May, NJ on August 31, 2014 (#001) and read through from the beginning, or just pick a section and read a few, or randomly select postcards. It really doesn’t matter! The Postcard Gallery at the bottom of this page will show you a quick pictorial tour of our trip in order.

A note about the photo quality: remember these are postcards that have actually gone through the mail. And we covered the homemade ones with packing tape! They are definitely not the highest quality photos you will ever see. We do have LOTS of excellent photos from our adventure, which, over time, I will be adding to the Crew of Three Gallery. You can find the gallery at the bottom of the Crew of Three and About pages on this site.
