Martinique

26 November 2018  Rodney Bay to St Anne, Martinique
Overnight, a big, rolling 2 foot swell started coming into the anchorage and (err) started us rolling.  The weather forecast looked okay, so I cleared out and we upped anchor at 09:30.  After the battering that we took on the way up from St Vincent, we were little apprehensive, but it was okay.

On to St Lucia

19 November 2018  St Margaret’s Beach,  Bequia
Today's plan was to catch a ferry across to St Vincent, but while we had breakfast, it was raining heavily and the forecast was for unsettled weather all day, so we abandoned the trip.  Instead, we pottered about doing a few jobs - I screwed the fittings onto the cupboard doors, while Glenys painted a couple of other doors in the front heads.

12 November 2018   Chatham Bay, Union Island
The day started off overcast and looked very unsettled, but by ten o’clock the skies brightened and the wind dropped, so we went for a snorkel with the Green Turtles.  What a difference a day makes.  The visibility was up to 15 metres and we saw plenty of Green Turtles and Southern Stingrays.

5 November 2018   Tyrell Bay, Carriacou
During breakfast, we made a snap decision to go for a hike.  I’d been looking at Google Maps and spotted what looked to be a dirt track leading along the coast from Grand Bay, which is on the other side of the island.  I thought that we’d be able to link up with the dirt track that leads up to Chapeau Carre and then could walk back down to Tyrell Bay.

On To Carriacou

29 October 2018   Benji Bay to Tyrell Bay, Carriacou 
We were planning to go up to the Grand Etang National Park for a hike today and then sail up to Carriacou tomorrow or the next day.  However, there’s a Tropical Wave due to arrive tomorrow night, which will bring rain and stronger winds for the rest of the week.  After ten minutes of debate, we decided to abandon the hike and sail up to Carriacou today, while the weather is perfect.
