it’s been a while… my sincerest apologies. we’ve been in Trinidad, on the hard for well over a month and trust me, there is nothing more uninspiring than living in a hot dusty boatyard where the water is so siff there’s more oil and plastic than sealife and the mosquitos literally eat you alive 24/7.
having said that, we can sit and complain or we can make it nice for ourselves and we have decided to do the latter – it’s all about your mindset! we’ve met some great new friends and we’ve been seriously productive boat wise – new additions, upgrades and repairs. we are feeling proud 🙂
before I start posting on Trinidad though, I want to cover our Grenada experience, which has been the best so far. the community is great and there is so much to do. the islanders are the friendliest we’ve met and there are many beautiful bays to visit.
our first overnight stay was in Dragon Bay, and where Rufus decided to whip out his fishing gear. Contrary to what he name promises, there were no dragons (sorry Game of Thrones fans) but there was an abundance of fish. although he didn’t manage to catch one large enough to braai for dinner, he did have a LOT of bites on his chicken baited hook. the greedy little guys were just that, little, and so all of them were returned (very much alive and flapping) to their watery home.
even though we weren’t successful on the food front we did discover that fish are very keen on fresh chicken and that served us well later on 😉
