Friends in the Anchorage

27 December 2007 | Store Bay
Randy
We spent another day reading and cleaning up on board. We did catch up with our friends on Doris and Andromeda as well.

Store Bay is not a bad anchorage. It is very close to the shops and restaurants in the larger Crown Point area. There are a couple of nice beaches, a beach bar, some great restaurants including Latitude 11 and a great pizza place run by actual Italians. It is easy to get into and clear of hazards until you get in near the moorings for the tour boats. You have to keep clear of the power cable that runs to Trinidad at the north end and most of the anchorage is in 30 feet of water.

On the down side Store Bay can be loud. The odd 747 comes in to the airport fairly low to the water from time to time and the music from the hotels and passing glass bottom boats can get impossing. The swell comes in on the beam a bit as well.

We are going to try the Pigeon Point anchorage up the coast just a bit in a day or two.
