We wanted more out of life after forty. This is our story - a baby-boomer couple who abandoned our San Diego corporate lifestyle, and all our "stuff," for a life in the Caribbean. At times, we lowered our expectations to the depths of our souls. Spanning twenty-five years, the transition from minimum wage at a pirate bar living in a grass hut to handling millionaire yacht owners, make hurricanes look like child's play. We weathered twelve hurricanes and hosted 100-plus yacht charters, outlived three firings, endured five resignations, even survived life in a van without divorcing--all the while looking for that perfect job. There's a yacht more to the story that kept this romance underway at full speed. Our story might just compel you to revisit your own dreams, seize opportunities and, maybe, just maybe, find your own paradise.
