Tobago Cays

Sailing more of the Grenadines, we travelled from Mustique to Tobago Cays. Great short hops from island to island. We left early morning and actually managed to sail off the mooring as there were no other boats near us. The channels were rough and the currents pushed us 30-50 deg off course, but a lovely sail. Arrived to anchor in gusts over force 7 and our first day for months of heavy rain. Murray was sea-sick for the first time since December - it was a tad lumpy. The locals huddled in their boats while waiting for the deluges to pass - at least our boat now looks lovely and clean!

Fabulous palm lined sandy beaches - turtles numerous and friendly and lazy iguanas. The turtles are green ones, which means you can stroke them without losing a finger.
Murray was adamant that these iguanas were fighting, Caroline thought they were mating and to settle the disagreement, insisted on a photographic finish.
(But you need to see the video too!)
