COMMENT: Beach House -ANCHORED – Castara Bay, Tobago South Shore

Despite our having permission and a permit to anchor in Englishman’s Bay, a local fishing guy came by and wanted us out so he could net the entire bay.
I doubt his nets were that big, but we were not going to argue and moved 2 miles to this bay, Castara where there are two other cruising boats.
It’s just as pretty or more so and it’s calmer!

I’ll blog later this afternoon to catch up…
Cheers,
Scott and Wind-lass Nik

No internet here! We’re the only boat, pretty nice, idyllic setting. We were here in the rent a car the other day.
May go ashore to the restaurant later. We plan on going to either Castara Bay or Buccoo Bay tomorrow before heading off to Trinidad on Thursday.

I’ll remove lots of you from the position report once we are at the dock in Chaguaramas, Trinidad. Let me know if you want to stay on?

COMMENT: Beach House -ANCHORED- Man of War Bay, Charlottesvlle, Tobago

We anchored at 6:15 am local time, we’re now -4 on GMT. 25 or so cruising boats here, a nice little anchorage but
deeper than I’ve been used to since leaving the Pacific.

The Atlantic has been crossed! 6050 miles since we left Cape Town….

KIT,
Sleeping now, check in and update the blog later today…
