Life is full of surprises, and these Seniors are moving a bit slower publishing blogs. But it can't be said that we're not having fun.
There is a test for reading this blog, see if you can figure out how this blog differs!
But whatever you do, wherever you go, be careful to avoid this creature!
From Carriacou we headed north, "yellow flagging" in Bequia, before taking off for St. Lucia.
Relaxing in Marigot Bay, St. Lucia
Capella Marigot Bay Resort and Marina offered the quiet ambience and attentive poolside bar service that we needed.
From St. Lucia, we sailed to St. Anne, Martinique where we found sandy beaches and shade...important for us Irish girls.
Look very closely!
Back in St. Anne, Martinique, Peter re-built his stamina walking the Hill of Stations of the Cross.
Lovely lunch at the new Sextant Restaurant, Le Marin, Martinique
After a plesant hike with FOD (Friends of Dennis) along Martinique's south shore, we rewarded ourselves with a refreshing lunch.
But it is a sailboat, so a-sailing we will go!We stopped in Marigot Bay again on our return from Martinique.

Next stop. Bequia, St. Vincent and the Greandines.
Jack's Bar, Princess Margaret Beach, provided delicious food, drink and views.
Nice walks and stunning scenery.
Another lovely spot is the Gingerbread Restaurant on the balcony overlooking Admiralty Bay.
We had the opportunity to join the Children's Reading Program organized by Cheryl at the Fig Tree Restaurant. These children attended each Saturday to improve their reading skills.
We enjoyed a Caribbean Brunch with local music the next day at the Fig Tree. I was amazed at the ingenuity of the "mini steel drums" made from tin cans.
We enjoyed a pleasant lunch in Bequia with FOD friends, Lance and Suzie.
And we were off to Petit St. Vincent, part of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, where the water is clear as gin.
Fun to watch the crab dance on the wall.
Retirement is sweet!
We enjoyed a honeymoon brunch!
From PSV, we proceeded further south to Carriacou.
acquaintance at Paradise Beach.
Behind the bar with Curtis, Off the Hook Bar and Grill, Paradise Beach, L'Esterre Bay, Carriacou.
We have always enjoyed Sandy Island Marine Park, watching the sunsets. Supposedly fishing is prohibited but impossible to enforce.
Upon returning to the big island of Grenada we enjoyed sailing of "Her Majesty", still a terrific sailing dinghy.
A cricket game and a roti were enjoyed at Woburn before decommissioning, taking sails down, winch maintenance, change of sanitation hoses and, of course, meeting with fellow "yachties".
Enjoying Grenada's Le Phare Bleu cocktail of the day and draft beer for Peter.
Love this one from Dr. Seuss!
