Tobago Cays

WOW!

This blog will also be mostly pictures because, as you will see, the beauty of the Tobago Cays is indescribable.

The turquoise blue water was crystal clear. We got our anchor set and just sat on the bow and watched 5-6 sea turtles leisurely swimming around the boat.

 

The first day we were there we took it easy, caught up on school work and just took quick snorkels around the boat. The next morning Rich and Tyler went snorkeling and then in the afternoon we went to check out the beach.

Petit Tabac is the small island in the distance

The beach Did Not Suck!IMG_4669

Once again there were lots of kids.

So, That means lots of parents too…IMG_4668

We spent 4-5 nights anchored here and then went over to Petit Tabac for the day. I still have to pinch myself when we pull our home up to a uninhabited island paradise!! I keep thinking my life is only a dream that I am going to wake up from and be back in the real world. IMG_4679

Petit Tabac is the island that was used in Pirates of the Caribbean scene where all the rum was burned.

People who visited this island before us built coral and stone sculptures

and we added to them.

Then we took a walk on the beach with the crew from Saltair 3.IMG_4713IMG_4710.jpg

The crews from Sandy Feet and So What dingied across from the anchorage we spent the last night and the kids built a shelter out of palms.

Here are some more pictures of this beautiful island.

Next stop…. The anchorage being Frigate Island, near the town of Ashton, Union Island.

St. Lucia

We had a really nice passage from St. Anne, Martinique to Rodney Bay, St. Lucia. The winds we a steady 15-20knots and seas were nice. We had our fishing rods out, but did not even had a bite!!As soon as we anchored in Rodney Bay we were greeted by Gregory, who was selling fruits and veggies from his boat. He kindly welcomed us and told us he could get us anything we need. 

We purchased a few things from him and they were delicious!!

Rich went in and checked us in and then we raised the courtesy flag. 

The next day we rented a car to explore the island from the land. 

As we were driving around we discovered it was election day. These little stands were set up along the roads so the people could come and vote. 

Me picking up some fresh mango’s from the side of the road.

We stopped and had lunch in the town of Soufriere which is at the base of the Piton’s.

Our little rental car.

Over looking the town of Anse la RayeThe rain washed mud into the bay of 

The next day was not rainy and was much nicer so we had a beach day!! There was an obstacle course set up in the water that Rich and Tyler wanted to try out. They had a lot of fun!!

After the obstacle course it was time for Lunch. We ate fresh Roti’s on the beach.

Gregory found us and asked us if we wanted some fresh Conch.

… and people started taking our picture as we were talking and buying conch from Gregory. 

We stayed in Rodney Bay for about a week and every morning we woke up and took walks on the beach.

We got together with our friends on “Hanna” and “Escape Claws” for beers at Antillia Brewing Company. 

The day we left Rodney Bay, we made a quick stop for drinks and lunch a Marigot Bay.

Rich forgot to put on a shirt before going into the restaurant!! 

Cheers!! Celebrating Kevin and Barbara’s 1 year anniversary of living aboard!!

Next stop….. The anchorage between the Pitons.
