Turtles, Sting Rays, and the Dark Side of the MoonMarkus
21-Feb-2008, Tobago Cays
We are in the Tobago Cays again, this time on our way back up north. We arrived yesterday afternoon after a very nice day sail from Tyrell Bay, Carriacou, and had a very special greeting: Right after we had dropped our anchor there were two big sea turtles (Nicky is still working on identifying the specific type with his little field guide), popping their heads out right next to our boat. It turned out that they belonged to a group of 5-6 turtles who were feeding off a grassy patch on the seabed a short distance from our anchor spot. They did not mind when we snorkled over to watch them and just kept munching away (guess they are used to visitors...). And just after everyone as back on the boat we saw two sting rays passing by us across the seabed (we are anchored in about 3m and you can clearly see the to the bottom). Definitely a lot more wild life during our first hour here than during our entire previous visit about 10 days ago.

12-Feb-2008, Prickly Bay, Grenada
Hello from Prickly Bay at the southwestern end of Grenada... arrived here today after a 40 nm sail from Carriacou and are looking forward to exploring some of the island. This will be the southernmost point of our trip (we chose our anchor spot to stay just below 12° N...). All is well aboard, more detailed update to follow over the next few days - stay tuned
