Carriacou - sunsets and clouds

The anchorage at Tyrrel Bay is good and the anchor was completely buried in the sand, so very little chance of dragging, and if you did drag there is nothing in the way until you reach Honduras a 1000 miles or so to the west! With nothing blocking the view to the west, the camera came out for every sunset and a few are included below. It was a very quiet and relaxing place to be. The water is very clear and with little fetch on the water it's easy to swim off the back of the boat. The snorkeling around the area was excellent and Mike went diving several times, being picked up from the boat by JP from Lumbadive, the local dive operator. We stayed at anchor for 12 days in Tyrrel Bay before moving on south again and sailing the 32 miles to St George's, the capital of Grenada.
A barge had been brought into the bay to be repaired, hence the tug boats
Look at the shapes of the clouds.
