Photos of the Day
September 21 - San Francisco Bay
Since we're very busy with deadline, and since everybody could use a little escape from the troubles of the world, we're running a mini photo feature on our favorite little island in the Caribbean, St. Barth. Mostly known as a very expensive and chic resort for the rich and famous, it's actually a wonderful place for the humble cruiser, too. For it's quite possible to enjoy all the fabulous natural attractions while living on a small budget.
