We've gotta get this site woke back up!

I'm sure many of us have wonderful pictures from all of our travels.
I'd love for you to share some with us, and hope you'll like the ones I post from our ramblings in the Leeward and Windward Islands of the Caribbean.

This is the South West coast of St. Vincent and Blue Lagoon in the background where Barefoot yachts has a bareboat operation.

I recognized that spot before I read the text! We chartered from Barefoot.

Here are some of my favorites from down there.

The dock at Mayreau:


Boat building on Mayreau:


Tobago Cays:


And, of course, Mopion:

Very cool Walker.
Thanks for sharing!

I have many fond memories from that trip.

Here's Salt Whistle Bay, Mayreau near sunset...

Here are a couple of mine from Salt Whistle:



I spent the better part of an afternoon and a good part of the night in that little bar on the right. The people that owned the place and their friends were really cool - shared food, rum, and lots of other consumables. All things considered, Mayreau was my favorite place in all the Grenadines.

very neat!
You can see the group of palm trees in my picture in your picture.
We were anchored a wee bit closer to the beach - front row. Got lucky.

Walker, do you remember the name of the place or of the people? We spent several days there last October when we were crewing on Sanctuary, had a great time with the locals!

Hell, Dawn, these days I can barely remember my own name. But - the people on Mayreau were really cool. I could live there. The only other place that I really thought I could live was Carriacou. Again - really great people.

We spent a lot of time with Black Boy & Deb, and their soon to be son-in-law Ice. Was a great time.

Also spent some time with Robert Righteous, again, solving all the world's problems over some beer & smoke.

It has been my favourite place since 2006, and still the same last October, can't wait to go back again in less than 7 days!

Black Boy and Deb - ding! That's them. Wonderful, wonderful people. And - after experiences elsewhere in the Grenadines, they were a welcome surprise.

They are awesome! We had a great time with them, looking forward to seeing them again in a few weeks!

This is one of the best sunset photos I've ever taken.
The island is St. Thomas, and the photo was taken from Christmas Cove, Great St. James.

Norman - Thanks for posting!

Here's a picture from Windlass Bight, Anegada in the summer of 2007.
My understanding is that these nurse sharks come in to breed for a few weeks every summer.
The breeding activity can be pretty spectacular, but you do have to be patient.
I was standing in ankle-deep water and snapped this photo.
The 6-foot shark was not all that far from my feet!

Do you remember the date that you took the nurse shark pic?

That picture was taken June 23rd, 2007, at 12:56pm.
We had lunch at Loblolly and were headed to Cow Wreck, but stopped off in Windlass for a beach walk, and that's when we spotted the sharks all over the place. There were dozens, if not hundreds. Heck, there's 5 sharks in that picture!

I'll have to bring a video camera out there this summer.
Hopefully they will still be around in mid-July.
It's pretty spectacular when they start going at it... tails and fins everywhere and water splashing 5-10 feet in the air.
