Oliver and Claudia join us for some rhum punch. They are from Zurich on a croation flagged Sunbeam34 ,

having crossed the atlantic a month ago

Next day we sail to Union Island to fill our fresh water tanks , 25cents EastCarib dollars per liter (about 10 US cents per quart)

Then we sail back to Tobago Cays for more snorkling before the rain cloud arrives and then a sundowner -kite-surfer show


March 1 ... it is Annie's birthday!!!! HAPPY BIRDAY ANNIE!!!! Mom and Annie are in Zermatt having fondue while we have spagouz Nico!

We go back to Jamesby Island to take pictures of Iguanas

Later that day we sail to Mustique , about 20 NM away. We arrive at 4PM. Only billionaires (note the hill top villa), a few fishermen and the queen live here

We have sundowners at the world famous Basil's Bar and then a great dinner too.

Nick has shrimp in beer-and-spices-batter appetizer, then burger. lezav has lobster (YUM!)

Next day we go to the local Mustique Island bakery for breakfast. How nice!

Note the electric karts just like in Zermatt!

Farmer's market!

We wonder how much a nice little place like this would go for, with a private canon !
