They Don’t Warn You About Karaoke in Paradise

Sunset from our cockpit at anchor in Rodney Bay
St. Lucia.  Clean, swimmable water and a
fresh breeze make a few off-key
sound waves worth it.

Sound travels all too well over water….

We’re anchored at least ¼ mile from shore.  But bad karaoke hits-from-hell (“Byyyyyye, byyyyyye, Miss American Pieeeeeeee…”) worm their way into our otherwise quiet cabin.  Most likely, they’re inspired by good times and a little liquid courage in the form of cheap rum drinks.

Guess that’s payback for an easy 10-minute swim with snorkel and flippers, and a 5-minute kayak to St. Lucia’s silky beaches.  We’ll take it.  

Too bad the internet access doesn’t travel as well as the karaoke.
