Well the Tobago Cays were as magical as always.
Gisela sorted out a good spot to anchor well away from the large sailing cruise ship.
We went ashore to see the spread that they put on for their guests.
Some of the locals who make their living running beach barbecues were less than impressed with the all inclusive cruise ship deal.
Others just hoped for table scraps.
Garbage iguanas get fat!
Mega yachts Twizzle 57m and Covallo 43m joined us in the Tobago Cays anchorage for a day or two. Covallo rents out for $85,000 a week low season plus all expenses. How much for Twizzle? Double that maybe.
Anyway we have more fun and satisfaction as we haul up our own sails and drop our own anchors.
Speaking of practical things these guys run a garbage collection service. For a fee of course.
We saw quite a few of my favorite fish the spotted box and a nice peacock flounder.
The sunset gave us hopes for a green flash.
But no luck.
Next stop was
and a walk on the beach
The school kids were working on their coloring skills
This is the local fire engine
But it does not look ready for action to me.
We spotted this barbaric practice
Deliberately laming the lambs by a rag pushed through their leg and tied around the major ligament.
Next stop was here.
This private island is run as a luxury hotel and although it is $1000 + a night it is not unreasonable as there are only 22 cottages and instant service by mini moke.
Sunday lunch at Goaties.
and a swim after lunch from the beach.
We left Dizzy to keep his eye on our neighbor who he thought was anchored to close for comfort.
Life is good.
