The overnight sail from  Trinidad to Grenada was one of the best sails we have had on Melody. With a flat sea and a good 20 knot Easterly on the beam, Melody was ploughing along like a freight train.

It was great anchoring in Prickly bay, Grenada and knowing that my brother, Adriaan would be visiting us in a few days! We had a blast with Adriaan onboard and managed to see a fair bit of the island. Highlights included visiting the Rivers rum distillery where they bottle a 75 - 80% white rum.....ouch! A great tour of the chocolate making process at the Belmont Estate cocoa plantation and a visit to the Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park.     

Viv is off to Rio de Janeiro today for family reunion. Very Jealous!! I am not quite sure what I will be doing with myself for the next three weeks, but a surf trip to Tobago is on the cards.

We had a great time in Trinidad, meeting and making lots of friends and finding plenty of work to top up the cruising funds for a little bit. After three months we began getting itchy feet and finally headed north to Grenada. Wow, and what an incredible sail we had!
