We have had a magical few weeks, tinged with some sadness at the end.
From Bequia we headed south to Tobago Cays, a collection of five uninhabited islands all protected by two reefs. The Horseshoe reef and the World's End reef protect the anchorage from the Atlantic swell but you do ride at anchor with no land between the bow of the boat and Africa! This is paradise, we swam with turtles and had the best snorkel that we have ever experienced. I suspect that in season it is packed. It was fairly busy when we were there. We bought some of the nicest red snapper here too!
From there we sailed down to Union....a heavy session with Lorna and George ensured hang overs for the sail back to Carriacou. Just in time to join the full moon dinghy drift through the mangroves. Six dinghies rafted together, shared nibbles and alcohol and spent three hours enjoying the mangroves! We also managed to sign up to look after two dogs and a cat for a month....oh and Gill got a ride for the regatta!
Then south again to Grenada....but more of that next time!
