Photo: I thought I'd hit the lottery when the ATM spit these out -they're so beautiful!  If only it were the lotto.  The money that's spit out in each country is ours, but it looks different at each stop.  Kind of a cool concept, if you think too much about it!  Green going in.... ?? coming out.
Photo: Gigantic grapefruit, small bananas.  Just the way we like 'em!
Photo: The growth on the bottom of CJ was pretty incredible.  Zebra mussels up past the boot stripe, green soft growth and white scum halfway up the gunwale.  This is 29 days of the boat heeled over on it's side.
Photo: I wish these photos did it justice.
