Thinking of warm places

Sitting in my office with the coldness seeping through the window well, a book caught my eye in the order tool. An Embarrassment of Mangos: A Caribbean Interlude was written by Canadian Ann Vanderhoof. Maybe she was cold too.
In the 1990's Ann and her husband chuck it all. They move onto a 42 foot sailboat named Receta and sail south. For two years they wander the Caribbean and Ann chronicles the charming people they meet, the storms at sea and the food. It always rounds back to the food and she includes the recipe. mmmm After two years she and Steve head back to the "real world", but what an escape. Don't you feel warmer now?
