Day 6 of our 10 day Grenadines bareboat sailing trip, we were ready to get wet and cool off when we moored in the Tobago Cays. We didn’t expect to find a squadron of reef squid just hanging out 10 feet from our catamaran!
Diving and dining in Bequia, in the Grenadines, a string of islands that are part of the 32 island nation called “St. Vincent and the Grenadines” in the Caribbean – Part of the West Indies, they are south of St. Lucia and north of Grenada.
Every Friday evening Gros Islet hosts a party they call a “jump up”. They close the street, bring in giant speakers, crank the music, encourage the street vendors, light the barbeque pits, and set up portable rum bars.
Less than 20 hours on our sailboat and we’re faced with possibly having to abandon ship in Marigot Bay, but we’ll get to that…Marigot Bay, St. Lucia is one of the most idyllic sailing anchorages in all of the Caribbean. It’s beautiful, sheltered, safe, and calm. It is so sheltered that
Bora Bora, Tahiti, Huahine, Raiatea…French Polynesia…few places sound more romantic –bringing to mind beautiful waters with every possible shade of blue, palm trees, grass skirts, ukuleles, tropical drinks, huge smiles, dramatic scenery, and lots of hand holding opportunities. No reason to adjust that perception – it’s all true!
