The Grenadines

The Grenadines! Lovely group of islands! But oh so windy over the winter holidays! After celebrating New Year’s Eve with Hapa Na Sasa, we sailed to the Tobago Cays, a mere 30 miles. There, we met up with Miss Behaving again. The Tobago Cays are a group of four islands protected by a reef that makes a shallow lagoon around them, South Pacific style. We were looking forward to their sandy beaches and clear waters for snorkeling. We had not counted on relentless 25- to 30-knots wind day and night. The bottom is sandy, so holding was not an issue, but the constant wind stirred the waters, which were not as clear as we would have liked. The beaches were indeed beautiful and the tiny uninhabited islands worth a visit. We snorkeled, flew kites on the beach, walked the trails on Baradel Island and decided to move onto calmer waters after two wind-howling nights.

We sailed the six miles to Chatham Bay in Union Island. Ah! So much quieter! The wind was still gusting over the hills, but it was a lot calmer overall. The reef on the north part of the bay was worth a snorkel. Next we sailed to Grenada, where we were meeting our friends Stewart and Dan, who were flying from Australia to Grenada for a one-week vacation with us.
