06 September 2007 | Union Island
All too soon it was time for Razmig and Atsuko to get back to LA. We dinghied ashore for breakfast at Bougainvillea before they caught their flight. Bougainvillea is a tourist hangout which means that the prices are high by island standards. They do a nice job of it though and served great fruit, all you can drink coffee and juice, all you can eat toast and jam, as well as the standard bacon and eggs. We've been getting a great lunch for $5US so you still feel robbed when you pay $25.
Razmig and I stopped by the airport to clear them off of the boat papers and onto their flight on the way to breakfast. The best round trip deals to the southern Caribbean always seem to be through Barbados. It worked out well this time because you can get to Barbados from everywhere. Razmig and Atsuko hopped over to Grenada from Barbados and back from Union. The inter island flights can be pricey, however.
We sadly saw Razmig and Atsuko off at the airport. The guy at the desk let us just walk right through security with them. I don't even think the metal detector was working. We waved as long as we could see their plane.
