Fish Suppers and Mad Cats

We have had several delightful days on Union Island.
The weather has been a bit blustery with occasional showers.
We have make a couple of hikes which involves an initial steep scrabble up out of the bay before the start.
We have a great time socialising with other OCC friends.
We had supper on Infinity B with Peter & Jackline from Ellen on our first night and we ate some of the tuna we caught.
We had drinks on board Infinity B yesterday afternoon with John from Eschaton and his lady friend.
In the evening Bill & Jessica from Cadence joined us for supper where Mandy used the famous Swedish recipe to cook the Baracuda we caught.
Today we went to Clifton to get some much needed provisions.
Clifton Bay has a reef right in the middle of it. So we are always careful to pick a safe anchoring spot.
We were only there a couple of hours but saw two separate serious incidents involving catamarans.
The first where a large cat had anchored right where the ferry need to turn.
There was lots of hooting and the catamaran was nearly hit.
The second incident involved a charter cat trying to sail across the reef. It ended aground and being blown onto it by strong winds. It took a whole fleet of local boats to pull it off and then it drove straight into the reef for a second time!
We have just arrived in Tobago Cays ..... it's simply stunning.
