Where in Margarita just off Venezuela had a good trip down from Grenada, not
much in the way of wind but the tide and current and swell was behind us so
we made good time.
We stopped at Los Testighos a small group of islands, they have no roads or
cars no runway and no ferry they bring everything in themselves from
here-Margarita which is 50 miles away.They live off fishing and bring their
catch here to sell.
A large group of dolphins came out of the islands as we approached and swam
off the bow for a good while, the first dolphins since Barbuda. Also on
Testigos there is a large frigate bird colony , there must be many fish in
the sea here.
Margarita is very American with large high rise apartments and very large
malls for shopping. Fuel is very cheap here about 7p a litre
we get 2150.00 Bolivia's to 1 u.s. dollar!
Off early in the morning to Tortuga the snorkelling is said to be excellent
there-I'll let you know.
