The Yummy Bakery
The Buccaneer Restaurant
We looked at the menu for this new restaurant and as Jan is on a quest to find the best roti in the islands had lunch there the next day. The chicken roti was with bone as that is the way the locals like it we chose the mutton roti and very fine it was too.
When the bill came the rational behind the name became clear, they were pirates. The rotis were charged at 25 $EC each. Now there was little chance of them getting away with this with a Scotsman in charge of the kitty. I had seen the menu showing the price as 10 $EC. I pointed this out to the waiter and the bill soon came back amended to match the menu.
Despite the threat of rain we went for a walk on this little island looking for iguana amongst other things. Now I was expecting to find some without any great effort but not a single one was seen despite the presence of considerable quantities of iguana poop. I wondered if the absence of iguanas was linked to the absence of full size conch in the turtle zone. Did some one finally succumb to temptation and go for the easy harvest and scooped up the conch and iguana for the pot or maybe resale?
Grackles and Cactus fruit.
Tagging in Paradise
I know that there is a human trait that likes to leave a little monument to their passing,
Unlike the busy times around the turn of the year when there may be 200+ boats here there were only 11 last night and the usual raft of boat boys was not in full feeding frenzy mode. We were politely offered fresh bread, croissants, lobster etc and all from well fendered boats. But we had provisioned in Clifton so were OK.
We find iguanas!
After a wonderful morning snorkel on the Horseshoe Reef that surrounded us complete with 296 new pictures we pulled up anchor and set sail for Clifton Bay on Union Island. The plan is to re-provision and sail to Ashton tomorrow. We'll anchor near Frigate Island, followed by Chatham Bay on Union Island, then moving to Salt Whistle Bay on Mayreau Island before sailing up to Bequia Island on Wednesday where we anticipate staying for a few days.
