STILL HERE AGAIN June 15, 2015

Posted by sailingnightwatch in Uncategorized.

It is Monday again and we are still in Rodney Bay. The plan of the day is to go further south on St Lucia and stage for going to St Vincent.

We have always avoided St Vincent because it has a bad reputation. We have some boat friends that have gone there several times. Always traveling in a group. Going there would cut the trip into a 35 and a 15 mile leg. Everyone likes that. St Vincent makes me nervous. There are many robberies there and have been murders of cruisers. The country is very corrupt and as long as people are paid off, you can get away with anything. I do not need that

We took a tour of the island that included several fishing villages, the Pitons, a good lunch, a botanical garden, a waterfall and a few stops where you get accosted by people selling beads, baskets etc. They get pretty aggressive and follow you around. You can tell them “no” many times. Rejection does not bother them. And this is an English speaking island. Oh well. The tour was nice.

Saturday we hiked up to a fort that dated back to the 1770’s. Not a bad hike. After the hike we had a nice leisurely lunch at the restaurant on the grounds. Sunday was back to boat projects and today grocery shopping.

It is time to be move on.
