We left Prickly Bay with some rather dark clouds over the centre of the island but great winds for sailing.Coming past St George we knew this was the last time we would see it for some time. Grenada has been a great place to spend hurricane season but we are definitely ready to move north and enjoy some other Caribbean islands.
We caught a barracuda fish and so filleted it and got it ready for fish cakes. Yummy! Hope there’s more fish out there for us.
Yes we have good meals on board. Even the Stacks were impressed.
Snorkeling around Petit Tabac, Tobago Cays did not disappoint as there great coral and fish life in the really clear waters. We snorkeled to shore and while walking the beach imagined Johnny Depp filming Pirates of the Caribbean. Shame he wasn’t here now! Great little island to just hang out and watch the day disappear. There are a lot more boats in Horseshoe Reef compared to last week so nice to spend the day at Petit Tabac island with no crowds.
We arrived in Admiralty Bay, Bequia after passing the western point of the island with the ship still sitting on the rocks since January and the unusual cave-like dwellings in the cliffs called the Moonhole. We anchored off St Margaret’s beach with those beautiful green waters beckoning us in. We have never seen the water flowing in to St Margaret’s beach as a wave.
Bequia is always a great place to go kayaking (esp. when its as calm as it is today), wander the streets, meet the locals, buys provisions and go out for a meal.
We sailed along the coast of St Vincent stopping in Chateaubelair, which lies at the base of Soufriere, St Vincent’s volcano. We went for lunch ashore at The Beach Front Restaurant, which was really reasonably priced and had great views around the bay. The trip ashore in the dingy was a real treat given the tide.
Off to St Lucia.
