Greetings from Tyrrel Bay, Carriacou

Trish, Owen, Elliot, Daisie Dog and Robert are safely anchored in Tyrrel Bay. Delightful anchorage although the boys think is is a little too quite. On route to Carriacou we stayed overnight at Ronde Island, in spite of Chris Doyles recommendation against anchoring here, we found it less rolly than Prickly Bay. snorkeled the reefs, Coconuts were gathered on the beach and fish were caught. Elliot hooked a fish that took all the line and lure.

Trish and Robert celebrated one year of living aboard Bristol Rose, very nice night

We set a course on the lee of Grenada, once underway I remembered all too well why I prefer the windward side of the islands. we motored most of the way. We plan to stay a few more days before moving onto SVG (st Vincent & the Grenadines). Looking forward to Petite Martinique, Petite St Vincent and Union Island.

The next few days will be spend exploring the Carriacou. Dinner tonight at the Lambi Queen with the crews of Voyager and Kandia

November 17th, 2009 - Passage from Trinidad to Grenada

Current location 11 43.804N 061 38.443W

We are now 20nm off Grenada, coffee is brewing, 15 knts of wind, sun is up and life is good. After 3 months in Trinidad it is good to be moving again. although preparing to leave took much longer than we wanted it to. Left in the dark around 8:00 pm

We had a good overnight passage, AIS took some of the stress out of the moderately heavy shipping traffic around Trinidad.
