My good friend Gerard has been a fabulous resource and overall good buddy. He has lived down here for several years, and adds a wonderful craziness to all thats happening. He has introduced me to many wonderful people, including Dorene who publishes an island restaurant guide and who is also a super pastry chef (a good person to know especially if you like to eat!!). Gerard's friend Dick recently came down from Maine for a visit, and he, Gerard, Dorene and I went sailing on Bel Ami for a few days. Dick fell in love with the area. I expect he'll soon be back. Aside from being station manager for the local NPR radio station, Gerard is a professional photographer. Clicking on the above link brings you to some very nice pictures of the islands, as well as the Bel Ami. Enjoy!!!
