We joined the others again today for a tour of the island. We visited a sink-hole which is a 45 minute walk each way from the road. We then visited the Frigate bird sanctuary, which we accessed with a guide on Codrington Lagoon by speedboat. I now know lots more about the life of Frigate birds, which typically live 45 years and each year the males fly-off at Easter time and migrate to other parts of the world, leaving the females and youngsters at the the sanctuary pending their return in September for nookie! We finally stopped for lunch a street vendor offering barbequed chicken, fish or lobster. At just EC$40 (approx £9) the lobster was delicious, served with rice & veg and the owner went to a local shop so that we could have beers to drink. After a whole five and half hours ashore we were back onboard Ticketeeboo at half two - ready for a rest (and stuffed). General consensus is a to stay here tomorrow and depart north Thursday towards St Barthelemy (AKA St Barts), which is just
over 60NM to our NW. In meantime water is warm, sun is hot so we can chill some more!!!
xxxxxxxx to Sue (missing you lots) and family.
