Goodbye Grenada

Sailing away from Grenada yesterday morning
Another hurricane season has almost officially come to an end. It has been our 4th year this time around, not including the time we spent when we first arrived in the Caribbean in 2004. No other place can be called home as much as Grenada can. This season has seen us occupied in the search for a new boat, not only in the hunt for a new one but also in getting Alianna ready to sell as well.

Hog Island
We have enjoyed the quiet and peaceful times in Port Egmont (albeit awaiting a non eventful storm) and Clarks Court Bay; The Hog Island beach parties, the flea markets at Secret Harbour and the beautiful walks in the area. We have enjoyed the more convenient and pretty Prickly Bay when the horrid southerly swells are not rolling in and the fun nights ashore at the Tiki Bar hanging out with friends. Not forgetting St George’s anchorage with the pretty waterfront harbour to one side and the idyllic Grand Anse beach to the other. Although it is always hard to tear ourselves away from the familiarity we are ready for new excitements and adventures.

Grand Anse Beach
So we take our hat off to Grenada and thank her for being a kind and hospitable home; for treating us well and offering us a safe harbour. Maybe we’ll see you again next year and maybe we won’t, who knows, but return again one day, we will.
