Just another day in paradise....

On the Caribbean Island of St. Kitts (aka St. Christopher), above and below are views of our Calypso Bay home.

St. Kitts is the smallest and least populated sovereign country in North or South America and the Western Hemisphere, with a land area of 65 sq.mi, and a population of about 47,200. The island of St. Kitts is 23 miles long and 5 miles wide, at it's widest point.

Although we have "Permanent Resident" status on St Kitts, wife Cathy, V47HAM (W5HAM) and I split our time between our Calypso Bay, St. Kitts, West Indies home and at our Hockley, Texas, USA home. 

Our Calypso Bay, St Kitts home is located about 200 feet to the Caribbean Sea from the front door (see below view), and one mile to the Atlantic Ocean from the back door, with great views and a constant Caribbean breeze. 

Our St. Kitts home is available for rental, see https://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p385600 .  If interested I may be contacted direct at:  W5JON(at)SBCGLOBAL(dot)NET    for a very reduced "Ham" weekly rate.

I retired in 2007 after almost 30 years traveling the world working for Schlumberger, and Omni FC, on hydrocarbon pipeline Flow Computers and Flow Instrumentation. A tough retirement, but someone has to do it .....

 
Temperatures: High/Low - Summer 90/76 F. (32/24 C.), Winter 84/72 F. (29/22 C.).
