Underway again tonight back to Falmouth Antigua. a great cruise over and looking forward to Bermuda and the Americas Cup. The moon is bright tonight as we Tow Waldo past Martinique going North..
Well all good things come to an end, Sadly.. We woke this morning and started out from PSV back to Canouan and Great Bay. We dropped anchor after a scenic cruise through Union, Palm, Mayreau and Catholic rocks...while eating breakfast on the flybridge. All too soon we had to say Au Revoir to our great guests..We all hope our paths cross again. I wish they could have seen tonights sunset. as Posted here.
Some guests spent a fair amount of time here in Union at the Kite school. Ricardo our kite boarder and 3 others all having a good time. rosehearty meantime went out sailing and we also had a cracking time. We ended by popular voting at PSV for the last night's Anchorage.
Here a photo of our evening anchorage. This is what you imagine the Caribbean should be...
So after our great day of sailing we pottered in to Palm Island located off Union island..It is another private resort and is very picturesque and welcoming. All the usual sport activities were undertaken. Some of the guests even had Kite Boarding lessons so it was a quiet group at Dinner last evening. Here a little picture of our Shadow boat Annalu. Some times it is hard to find but usually the local beach Bar is where we look for Waldo 1st...
A great day. A Full of watersports and chilling...and just plain old having fun.. Big outs to being able to Paddleboard around PSV.. Great Cocktails ashore but better on Roshearty!! and Dinner by Rosehearty. These Caribbean Days are truly special . Note the Carriacou sloop that was built by hand on the beach right behind us.

The day ahead is Swimming with Turtles...Kiteboarding..Paddleboarding and Sailing.. We will be off for a sail..to PSV (Petit St Vincent) the Most South island in this chain of the Grenadines.

Bit Hazy today but warm and the wind was good. After a morning with some Kite Boarding, swimming and a long lazy breakfast. we up anchored and headed out to Mustique.
