The end of hurricane season means we are moving north again. It’s Sailing Sava with Mel, Brian and Domino Season 2!
We had lofty goals for our first season, many of which went by the wayside due to mechanical or weather issues. In the end, we got where we needed to be safe and sound and that’s what really matters.
Our latest plan for this year is to head partway back north the way we came and explore and enjoy the places we missed or rushed through on the way down to Grenada.
It’s funny how quickly plans can change: friend boats arrive in a harbor and you decide to stay for another day, or storms threaten and you leave for a more sheltered bay. We are getting better at going with the flow and we are enjoying it more than ever!
Where We’ve Been in Season 2.0
We left Grenada in mid October. Since then, we have travelled less than 200 nautical miles, but we’ve done so much I can’t fit it into one blog post!
We explored anchorages in Carriacou, took a deeper dive into the Grenadines, and actually got to explore a lot of Saint Lucia. Thanksgiving Day is today in the U.S. (Happy Thanksgiving everyone!) and we are stuffing ourselves with delicious French food in Martinique.
Here is a little map of the stops we took since we left Mount Hartman Bay (our favorite anchorage) in Grenada on October 17th.
What We’ve Done in Season 2, Month 1
What haven’t we done is more the question? In the off season, I started a list on an excel spreadsheet (former co-workers know this about me) with all the top sights and activities on each island.Since we want to explore these islands thoroughly, I am doing everything in my power to ensure we don’t miss the top activities and sights.
So far, we’ve participated in pot-lucks and music jams, done island tours, hiked mountains, dived coral reefs, visited turtle sanctuaries, historic forts, and waterfalls, and played games with our cruiser friends, mostly dominoes. We are having the time of our lives!
What I haven’t done is update the blog since we left Grenada. Don’t worry: I have lots of posts in the works: if you are planning to visit any of the places we came from (Carriacou, Saint Vincent and The Grenadines, or Saint Lucia), click the links! Stay tuned and Happy Thanksgiving.
