We motorsailed up from Roseau this morning and anchored in this natural bay at the north end of the island.
We were met by a boat boy called Cobra and arranged for him to pick us up in the afternoon so that we could go on a trip up the Indian River. He duely arrived at 3pm and we motored to the mouth of the river which was partially blocked by the wreckage of a coaster that had come ashore during hurricane Omah. There we transferred to a rowing boat propelled by Roy, who was to be our guide. He was very knowledgeable and kept pointing out wildlife that we would otherwisen have missed. The whole trip took about 2 hours and was well worthwhile. I never knew that hummingbirds were so small!
