Spending the summer in Grenada was hardly boring. Every night was just as exhausting as the next and we had no trouble finding things to keep us busy.
In September, our friends Patty and Luis on SV Brett Ashley took a mini vacation with us up to the Grenadines. We checked out of Grenada, left Mt. Hartman Bay and made our way to Union Island to check into St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
We passed Hog Island and Prickly Bay. Both were packed with sailboats waiting out the rest of Hurricane Season at a safe 12-degrees North.
A few gorgeous rainbows made an appearance.
It was a leisurely sail along the Grenadian coastline with only a few passing ships…
We arrived at Clifton Harbor on Union Island a couple of hours later than Brett Ashley and darkness was falling. It was our first time into the anchorage so our friends met us in their dinghy and guided us safely around the reefs showing us where it was safe to anchor. This anchorage is best approached in full sun unless familiar with the reefs.
One of my favorite sunsets…
The next day we got a clear view the area including the neighboring bar on Happy Island built on top of conch shells. The tropical water colors made us feel like we were back in the Bahamas, except with a lot of coconut trees!
Up next… The Tobago Cays!
We are currently anchored in Magen’s Bay, St. Thomas while the north swell is running. Surf’s up in Hull Bay!
Beautiful places you are able to visit and see. The rainbows are brilliant! Bean
We are sure Peter is having a great time surfing then
Happy new year. Hope it is as fun and adventurous as this past year
Patrick, he had a blast catching his first wave of the year on the North side of St. Thomas! I think he secretly prays for the North Swell to return :)
