Carriacou

<Back to Union Island>    <Back to Caribbean Page>    <On to grenada>

Carriacou, part of Grenada, is an easy going and friendly island. The word carriacou is Carib for 'island surrounded by reefs'. The people live by fishing and farming, and there is a growing cruising community.

May 29th - Arrived in Hillsborough to check into customs, and who anchors behind us, but Cheshire Cat! We haven't seen these guys since Bequia! It was too rolly to stay there, so we sailed around to Tyrrel Bay, where there's less wind, and all our friends.

May 30th - Had pizza with everyone at the Turtle Dove last night, we met up with 'coral Moon', and met some new cruisers too. Just when we see Coral Moon again, they leave today to go to Grenada! Well we'll see them there!

May 31st - We met up with 'Itza Purla' and 'Cheshire Cat' to have coffee at the yacht club. Then it was off in a bus to do a tour of the island.
