We enjoyed our stay in Grenada but by the end of a very hot summer (110 F most days), we were ready to leave.
After a few improvements and maintainance items were taken care of we set sail for the Grenadian Island of Carriacou. Our friends Lauren and Brian on Nightingale Tune were ready and sailed along with us.
Sandy island is a lovely little spit of sand and trees just outside Tyrell Bay. We spent several days snorkelling, sunning, having happy hour on the beach and celebrating Brian’s birthday with an awesome lobster dinner on Nightingale Tune. Lauren is an amazing cook and Brian an excellent grill master.
Randy and Brian made the long dinghy ride to Tyrell bay to clear us out before we sailed over to Union Island to clear into St Vincent and the Grenadines.
We only stayed long enough to get the paperwork done and grab a drink on Happy Island (we’d hoped for food too but “no food today, mon”) .
Our friends on Vidorra were waiting for us at Petite St. Vincent anchorage. So good to see them again! There’s another little spit of sand but without trees near Petite St. Vincent where we spent a lovely afternoon snorkelling and playing on what felt like our own Island Paradise!
Thank you to Lauren for these amazing photographs!
There were more islands calling us so after a few days we were off again. This time to Salt Whistle Bay….which was way too crowded, so we returned to Saline Bay. This is a lovely bay, great holding, but sometime during the night the dump was set on fire as they do in the islands, and the stench was overpowering. Not a good night’s sleep at all.
On our way there John and Jen on Corpse Pounder caught up to us and joined us on the way to Saline where we had the bay mostly to our selves and our friends Mark and Joanna on Discofish are anchored. We had a lovely happy hour on the beach until the no-see-ums joined us. They are such party poopers!
The next day we we all went around to Tobago Keys where there is a lovely reef for snorkelling and a turtle sanctuary.
On the east side of the reef is one of the islands used in Pirates of the Caribbean.
