Windswept trees on the island
Oops! He so nearly made it!
This morning we dinghied ashore and hiked up the hills above the anchorage. On the windward side of the island there's an amazing reef-fringed lagoon.
Walk completed we were hot and hungry and found a brilliant local's bar where 2 rounds of drinks and 2 rotis ( curried beef and chicken with potato in a wrap) came to $EC 49 (about £12). Really friendly people so it was a good lunchtime break and we got in just before rush hour - regular clientele included road-menders, a uniformed official of some sort and the owners' two children on their lunch break.
This afternoon we set off another 10 miles south to Mayreau and we are sitting in Dennis' Hideaway Bar enjoying some particularly good rum punches, so we'd better stop typing soon! This island is the smallest inhabited Grenadine island and seems really friendly - it has a completely different feel from the slightly-chaotic Canouan. We'll probably stay here another day before going to explore Tobago Cays; from what we've seen so far, they need a new green-keeper at the recreation ground!
