Caribbean Winds and a necklace of islands


MAYREAU ISLAND 
THURSDAY
No clouds to hold the sunrise from flooding the prow of Cloud Nine this morning. 

Fresh winds and a high tide made most of the morning choppy and bumpy.
07:45: Walter turned up with the banana break saying how bad the wind and waves actually were.

We took the RIB over to Tee Shirt Island (the island where the cruise ships drop passengers for a moment of paradise and the opportunity to buy a tee shirts with Chill Out emblazoned on the front. The right name is  Petit Bateau. 

We climbed to the top of the island and looked eastwards over a tourquoise sea, darker water and saw the entire horseshoe reef of Tobago Cays laid out like a necklace on a jeweller's counter.
