Caribbean Island Memories & Adventure

These Caribbean Island Memories are stories of Author Ian R. Clayton’s adventures in the islands dating back to 1960. The adventures are period pieces of solo trips and hitchhiking with friends.  All are true, real-life adventures of my early years exploring the Islands of the Caribbean. They are fun and informative stories of real-life adventures and chance meetings, like Woody Double rum, and solemn poetic notes like Lonely Nights in St. John.
