Our adventure going 'down island' to get out of the Hurricane 'box'
We left Virgin Gorda on 5 July 2011, buddy boating with our friends Bob and Debbie on s/v 'Fidelity'. Fidelity is a sweet Jeanneau monohull and both Bob and Debbie are very experienced sailors. We enjoyed their company at each stop... fast friends. The pictures below begin after having left St. Martin (See February 2011 for pictures of St. Martin). We had a great overnight sail to St. Martin, both Fidelity and Astral Wind provisioned and headed south. Below is only a tiny portion of the beauty we experienced on our travels to the island of Grenada. We arrived in Grenada in the first week of August, five weeks of travel. We have taken hundreds of photos and movies on our journey, only the best are here on our website. Enjoy!
Pirates of the Caribbean - Wallilabou Bay, St. Vincent
Below are a set of pictures with no comment on each. They were all taken at Wallilabou Bay where the Pirsates of the Caribbean were filmed. I will not enter comments since Grandpa and I have not seen the movies, but as we understand Johnny Depp swashbuckled around and swung from may of the parts of the movie set in the picutres below. We are hoping that those who have seen the movies will recognize parts of the movie set. It is a very poor area where boat boys frequent your boat to sell you various wares or trade for food. Kind of heartbreaking.... Americans just do not know how lucky they are. Nevertheless, we anchored right in the bay and enjoyed our stay there.
