Captain Fatty Goodlander famously said

" Cruising is boat maintenance in exotic locations. "

Well I am anchored off Calivingy Island which is fairly exotic. The island rents for between $210k and 1/2 M per week. Each of the ten bedroom suites is furnished with a king size bed, lovely sitting area, wet bar, massive carved wooden wardrobes, small writing desks and dining tables. Unique in design, with a sunken Jacuzzi here or a loft- style bedroom gallery there, every guest suite is richly appointed, spacious, and comfortable with exquisitely appointed en suite bathrooms, private entrances and lovely views of the island and ocean beyond.

Outdoor living is a welcome delight on Calivigny Island, with a magnificent free form swimming pool complete with swim up bar, expansive decks with plush lounge chairs, an outdoor massage gazebo with breezy privacy curtains, plenty of al fresco dining areas, a giant retractable viewing screen with comfy seating for movie nights, and plenty of jogging or biking trails for guest enjoyment.

With a fully equipped fitness gym,unrestricted access to several watercraft including a 44 ft. Hinckly a 27 ft. Boston whaler a 38 ft. Munson Landing Craft and VideoRay RVO submarine, not to mention jet skis [ which are illegal in Grenada ] , bikes, quads and more, there is plenty to keep a guest busy when not lounging by the pool or gazing out over the crystal clear blue waters of the Caribbean. Guests at Calivigny Island can also enjot a number of optional activities, services and amenities available upon request, such as a 173 ft. Atmosphere Perini Navisailing Yacht, musicians and entertainers, fireworks displays, massage therapy services and more.

Boasting 6 private white sand beaches, two directly in front of the beach house, opportunity abounds for hidden pleasures, quiet solitude and good old fashioned beach fun on Calvigny Island.

Well it looks like it is rented this week and the guests and I enjoyed an early morning swim off the main beach. I was half tempted to swim ashore and sun myself on the beach which is NOT owned by the island but open to all but coffee called and I had a project on my mind.

Well it MIGHT have been simple but I could not get the cable to run where I wanted it to and ended up with part of the cabin roof down, a kitchen cabinet dismantled and another small locker removed entirely before I could drill the holes and run the cable.

Drill battery is flat now so while I wait for it to recharge it is blog time.
