what a difference a day makes
14 April 2011 | Prickly Bay, Grenada
After a beautiful sail down to Carriacou in the glorious sunshine, we lifted the anchor in the pouring rain, having waited an hour to see if the rain would pass. It didn't, so at 7.30am we left Carriacou with forecasts of rain but light winds. We were quite surprised then that it was gusting 30 knots and the swell and current was huge behind us. The good news was that we cut our journey time by a half, with our COG 12 knots at time. Our oilies also got a nice fresh water rinse, not having seen the light of day since the Atlantic.
Whilst dropping anchor in Prickly Bay, Grenada, Steve Manning from Jersey popped over to say hello and we enjoyed an evening with him and Giselle. The next day, we all headed into St George for a wee look around. I found a good bookshop with some Caribbean Curriculum books, so we're all stocked up again for school. We also went mad in a material shop, buying zips for my new project, black material for Lochy's Harry Potter robe and some material for Mia to make a skirt.
We had a lovely meal at de Big Fish, run by Rikki, also from Jersey, and his partner Kim. Whilst enquiring about new rudders, Rikki knows a man who knows a man who knows a man so watch this space!!
