blue skies with a bit of breeze
A picture of the beach in Saltwhistle Bay, Mayreau. It was a short jaunt from Clifton to Saltwhistle Bay yesterday; only about four miles.

It is gorgeous and calm this morning with blue skies and a bit of a breeze. Many of the boats that spent the night in the bay left by 9:30 this morning and a few new ones have already straggled into the mooring field. We're planning to stay one more night and then head over to the Tobago Cays tomorrow morning.

We are definitely in the land of charter boats and day visitors. In Clifton it was entertaining to see how many people could fit onto the dinghies running to shore and out to Happy Island. There were several with nine people crammed onto a ten foot dinghy and we may have seen one dinghy with ten people squeezed aboard. Last night, in Saltwhistle, one of our neighbors ran their generator all night. It was a cool evening, so it's not clear why they would have left it on. And finally, the outboards on the boat boys' boats run so ragged that they almost sound like running anchor chain. Last night one came by about an hour after we'd turned in and it sounded exactly as though someone was dropping an anchor on top of us. Oh well, it was just one of the boat boys returning some revelers to a neighboring boat. After so long in a quiet corner of Prickly Bay, it's fun to see boats that move, and so much activity.

Here's a shot of one of the restaurants along the main road in Mayreau just over the top of the hill from here. It seems as though it's grown over time.

The boat's name comes from a poem by Robinson Jeffers: Evening Ebb The ocean has not been so quiet for a long while; five nightherons Fly shorelong voiceless in the hush of the air Over the calm of an ebb that almost mirrors their wings. The sun has gone down, and the water has gone [...]
