We arrived here this morning after a very rough 16 hour overnight trip. We had the wind, current, swell and rain against us, making it a slow and uncomfortable crossing. Coenie and Mike did all the watches as I was feeling a bit sea sick - so we all ended up sleeping most of today.
Despite all this, it was worth it,  as we are now anchored in a beautiful bay on the north end of Tobago. We are anchored next to a  high cliff with a lush tropical rainforest that is home to lots of birds. The small town here is called Charlotteville, where we checked in with Customs and Immigration and checked out the local fishing. Mike bought us some slipper lobster which look like a very fat, wide tailed, short legged version of a crayfish. We look forward to eating them tonight.
