Trade Your Winter Blues for Caribbean Blues

We have barely seen one snowflake here in southern Connecticut so far this winter and you are not going to hear me complaining about that one bit. But, it is still chilly and dreary and if I could hop on a plane and escape to any of these Caribbean resorts, I would do it in a heartbeat - in fact, I do have a trip to one of them planned for later this winter...More on that later :)
