Oysters from the Mangroves

14 June 2012 | Tyrrel Bay, Carriacou, Grenada
Elizabeth
Oysters in Tyrrel are picked from tree limbs in the mangroves and are flatter and smaller than the ones we're used to in the US. We bought a dozen from the wine man, Thomas (see the wine bottles in his tender?). He opened them for us and we ate all 12 as an appetizer in the late afternoon. The verdict? Either we didn't like the lime juice we squirted over them (limes are a little more tart than in the US) or we didn't like the oysters. Either way, we won't be buying them again. That shouldn't be an issue since we're getting ready to lift anchor and sail down to Grenada proper (Carriacou is officially part of Grenada but the main island is further south). We'll anchor at Mt. Hartman Bay and figure out what we want to do from that point. Several other cruisers are already there who we met in Salt Whistle and who will make the passage down to Trinidad within the next few weeks.
