Sounds disgusting doesn't it? We tried it tonight in a newly opened Italian restaurant as their daily special, recommended by the owner. DELICIOUS!
The mash was cold, served with caramelized carrots and white rice, very Caribbean with a hint of Italy.
We are back in Grenada on the last phase of our season. We will be spending the weekend preparing Tumi for hauling out, removing the sails, spray hood and Bimini, cleaning the stainless, scrubbing the deck and the dinghy bottom etcetera. A busy few days, a prelude to starting the building project 4 days after we get to our new home. Are we crazy or what? No, life is for living!

Tobago Cays is a group of three very small islands surrounded by a coral reef. Whilst offering no protection from the trade winds, the sea is a beautiful turquoise and crystal clear with turtles swimming around the yacht. It's the most like the Bahamas we've seen outside the Bahamas! I'm sure French Polynesia will rival it though ....
Yesterday we donned our masks and snorkels to explore the reef .... spectacular. Whilst the corals themselves weren't as attractive as at Les Saintes, the size and variety of fish was incredible ... pufferfish, parrotfish, blue tang (surgeonfish), various jacks, angelfish, zebra fish .... the list was endless. There was however quite a strong current so after a time I returned to the dinghy and Paul continued to drift dive between the coral heads and I picked him up downwind some time later. He's always told me it's like swimming in an aquarium: I can see why he says that now. We'll go for another snorkel at slack water this morning and then head off to Petit Saint Vincent for tonight.

This morning we've cleared in with Customs and Immigration, topped up on fresh produce at the Rasta market and are just about to return to the boat for lunch and a lazy afternoon, maybe with a walk ashore when it cools down a bit.
We have friends who live on the island so will be meeting up with them over the next day or too. Bequia is just as colourful and picturesque as we remember it .... it's nice to be back!
