Yes I was in total amazement and could not believe how unbelievably blessed I felt as we sailed into this Bay. Paradise Beach on one side of the bay and Sandy Island on the other side. The water OMG I honestly can say I have only one other time (Antigua) seen the water so Turquoise as it is her…
“Sandy Island, off the west side of Hillsborough Bay, is a favorite daytime destination for snorkelers and sailors. It’s a tiny postcard-perfect reef island of glistening sands surrounded by turquoise waters.”
That water was so turquoise blue…. Just wishing we could have stayed longer. I know we all have to get back one day to reality … flights to catch.. new crew coming on board..
Early evening on Lady Natalie.. spending time together so full of laughter, fun moments, time to relax and enjoy the beauty of this incredible Beach.
We are still in Carriacou with plans to get supplies for some food and then heading out to do some sailing… but the Kapt’ns agenda for today was, we practice tacking and jibbing.. Ok I think I am getting the hang of this Lady a little more now. We all had turns on the helm to get to feel the wind and sail…smiles If you tracked the moves on the GPS… lol looks more like a bunch of drunken sailors on the helm… just kidding no drinking as we sail.
As Clinton and Dave took food back to sailboat.. Us 3 ladies walked the beach to better spot for us to go back onto the dinghy. I found all kinds of nice shells and even sea-glass. not a lot but first time I actually did find some ever.
This must be one of the most special places for me…
Heartfelt Moments.… Happy Valentine’s Day..
I don’t believe I have walked on black sand before….This evening sunset was so magical. Dave, Clinton and I snorkeled from the Lady Natalie over to the beach. As Annabelle took the dinghy to keep an eye on us.
I don’t sometimes know what makes me so happy seeing something so magical like this beach.
I guess it’s just the simpleness in Life,
Feeling the sand on my toes, waves on my legs, wind in my face.
Back on the Lady we enjoyed such a beautiful happy evening together… Thank you for this Memory
We are really enjoying this special coffee every morning. It has not gone unnoticed by me. Thank You Marion and Dave for that special treat.
Our morning views have alwys been so refreshing and peaceful. Today is the first morning though that we are enjoying looking out to the open sea.
We are off to sail across to Carriacou today, a 30 mile sail. So excited to see this. My first time going out in to the open ocean water. Yes we always have land in sight.. but jut not close by..
After we sailed for several hours both the Kapt’n and Marion as well as us noticed that the horizon is starting to not be there anymore. Or lets say not as distinct as sky to water was earlier on, a storm was coming in. And we have still more then half to sail to Carriacou… time to go back and anchor at Halifax Harbor. The weather is turning and we don’t want to head into this storm.
Glad we did turn Lady Natalie around… Because we would not have been able to experience this so romantic island. With totally black sand…
Our anchorage for tonight after turning back from an attempted passage from Grenada to Carriacou. … I can’t wait to show you some of the moments here….
