Karla and Andreas left us on schedule last
Monday to return to Europe.
We've done a few chores since then and
despite the stockmarket devastation we decided we could still afford to get a
local guy to polish the decks for us, and a very good job he made of it too.
Blue Sky is looking quite spic and span after Michael did the teak in
We're down in Union Island, almost the
southern part of St Vincent and the Grenadines (except for PSV) and as usual
we're not suffering too much.
On the basis that a picture paints a
thousand words, here's a slightly bigger picture than usual which tells it all.
I've just been up the mast to take this a few minutes ago and joined it all
together with autostitch.
You can see why we needed a wide photo! from
left, the island is Mayreau, then Canouan in the distance to the north, next the
Tobago Cays. Then our forestay and a british catamaran, the island is Palm
Island - an expensive resort and in the foreground Happy Island. Happy Island is
built out of conch shells on the reef and is basically a bar run by some
friendly rastas. On the extreme right you have PSV (Petit St Vincent) and Petite
Martinique which is part of Grenada.
Incidentally, if you haven't checked out the
GoogleEarth images on the front of the blog website, zoom in slowly on last
week's position in the Tobago Cays - the satellite photo is great.
Next week we have the Carriacou Regatta to
entertain us, hopefully with some good pics.
Not much else to report this week, take care
and keep your water wings handy if you're in the UK.
George & Michael
