Clifton harbor from Clifton hill. We're on a mooring ball on the left side of the picture. The island to the left is Mayreau (today's destination) and the group of islands on the horizon just to the left of the middle of the picture is Tobago Cays.
It's another pretty day, blue skies and light winds. The winds are so light we may end up motoring the four and a half or five miles to Mayreau where the plan is to pick up a mooring ball in Saltwhistle Bay. A quick trip to shore to drop off trash and pick up some toilet paper and paper towels.
Clifton has been very pleasant -- a bit busy with quite a few boats coming in and out every day but the harbor is protected by the reef and everyone has been quite friendly. Union Island is quite a bit different from Grenada. We took a bus over to Ashton and it was funny to hear them listening to a Grenada radio station
that was advertising familiar shops, restaurants, events and locations. There are very few cars on the island and only a couple of buses. There were quite a few guest houses and accommodations, but most of them seemed empty and locked up. The harbor is next to the airport and you can hear the planes as they rev their engines prior to take off. Check-in was easy, the boat boys were helpful, and there is some provisioning (but not like Grenada).
Here's a shot of sunset from Janti's Happy Island where we had dinner Wednesday night.
