Here’s a summary of my much-anticipated return to sailing, taking a nice easy stroll through the southern Windward islands.
Imagine a dark, mysterious river flowing through a Caribbean jungle. Like something out of a movie. Chances are the Indian River is what you’re thinking of.
It was a difficult decision to leave Bequia, but I had to take advantage of the weather and make a quick stop in Dominica, next year’s major destination.
The Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary in Bequia is criticized for some of its practices. But there’s no doubt turtles have more of a chance here than in the wild.
Union Island is only three square miles but it sure was hard to leave this island. I can’t believe how much this beautiful place has to offer.
If you’re anywhere near the Grenadines at all, the Tobago Cays marine park needs to be on your list of stops.
The northeast side of Carriacou seems to have been isolated for centuries – the town, the beach, and the boats are all throwbacks to the early Caribbean.
I followed a dirt road with no idea where it led. To my surprise I found some completely secluded beaches – small, beautiful, and seemingly untouched by anyone!
I had no idea the historical background of the Carriacou Carnival – this colorful festival is full of history – here is some of it with photos!
What image comes to mind when you hear “desert island?” I’m willing to bet it looks a lot like Carriacou’s Sandy Island. Make a great day out of it!
