 All our engines are going to end up like this, but hopefully after we're finished with them.  This yacht engine I found washed up in Friars' Bay, on St. Martin.  When an engine block gets "washed up" on the shore, one has to think of the waves that did it.  There was a scattering of shredded sailboat parts around, someone's pride and joy once.

This is what the weather was like at Toronto Pearson International when we left for the St. Martin.  Luckily we were early for the deicing lineup!  Six hours later we were in shorts by the pool- what's not amazing about modern travel?

It's not all balmy breezes down there, though.  Hurricanes come through.  One drove this ship on the shoals a few years ago.  A more recent one put another cargo ship on a nearby beach.
