Each story focuses either on a sea creature or a locale. The stories are personable, with small family details intermixed and by the time you pass through the third story in the collection you begin to feel like a stowaway on a family's adventure. Dreffin does a very nice job of bringing her family into the work and making this more than a solitary travel log, but at the same time, the family is not the story, they are just witnesses to it. This book is not the dry stuff of your typical travel book, detailing every nook and cranny for the planning traveller. This is a Captain's log, it is a love story to all the places this family visits and all the amazing animals and people they encounter.
The Caribbean is always one of my favorite destinations, and this book made me start watching Beach House Bargain Hunters and dreaming of escape. I love the idea of an unfettered life, and Dreffin captures that sense of adventure in these stories. I enjoyed it, and suspect the memory of feeding the stingray, or watching the hatchling turtles struggle to the sea, will stick with me for a long time. Dreffin puts enough of her "self" into the work for the reader to feel escorted, but not so much that the reader feels a voyeur. I walked these stories as if they were my life, and for the short hours it took to enjoy them, it was.
