We left Grenada before breakfast, heading for the island of Carriacou, north of Grenada. Narrowly avoiding rain squalls we left the northern shores of Grenada mid-morning en-route to a small island, Isle de Ronde for lunch. Here we were met by fishermen who sold us what we think is a spiny lobster (£3), who was humanely dispatched in the freezer. It is a very beautiful and remote island, with clear seas and largely rocky shores.
Arrived in Tyrell Bay, at the southern end of Carriacou late afternoon. The bay is very well protected and has mangroves along its northern shore, which is now part of the National Park, with around 75 yachts anchored. Boat boys met us selling limes, oranges, bananas and lobster! Once we had worked out how to fit the lobster in the pan, it was delicious.
