Grenada, you’ve been good to us. We will always be grateful to you for opening your arms to cruisers and letting us ride out the COVID epidemic in safety. But after 522 days, it’s time to go.
We were able to make local friends and have grand adventures. We delivered a catamaran across the Atlantic Ocean from St. George’s to Faial, Horta, a journey of just under 3000 nm and 21 days (more on that in a later post). I learned to scuba dive and to spearfish, and the Captain was able to achieve some certifications he’s wanted. We ran hashes everywhere from mountainous jungle to rolling sugarcane fields. I rode a mechanical bull and didn’t die. We saw the only working traffic light in the entire country.
Tomorrow we leave the island of Grenada to head for Carriacou, a sister island in the nation of Grenada. We’re looking forward to more diving, more exploring, and new horizons.
