What a wonderful destination Blue Lagoon on St. Vincent has turned out to be. There is so much to tell but I am conscious that I have ben ‘hogging’ the postings so I must leave some revelations for the ‘girls’ to describe. As something of an ‘aide memoir’ to them, I will just mention pool, bars, lady up the mast, restaurants, school bus, KingsTOWN, Cathedral, flight changes, the freezer, spicy fries, the best Pina Colada, unexpected mutual acquaintances and THE DOG!

 

So, I will leave it all up to Paula and Lynn to comment:-

 

Where do we start…let’s backtrack to 2 days ago, anchored in the bay of Petit Nevis, a small uninhabited island. We spotted a dog on the beach but no humans….Nick swam ashore to check if snorkelling was feasible. He was greeted by this friendly, emaciated, abandoned dog. Clearly this poor animal was starving….Nick took a photo…heart-breaking….So started my mission to save this poor animal. I will save you the details but suffice to say that after dozens of emails and offers of financial assistance, he/she will be rescued….Mustique residents have organised a rescue mission, a vet will look him over and hopefully it will eventually find a deserving home. They have promised to keep me informed…watch this space….

This bay is perfect….everything without pretentions (or tuck up, Nick’s contribution!!!)…We visited Kingstown with its colourful architecture and community. What never fails to amaze us is all school children are immaculately dressed in their smart uniforms in spite of the evident lack of resources.

 

 

On return to the boat we settled by the swimming pool for a few hours of leisure! Moved our bodies to the beach bar where we enjoyed probably the best Pina Colada and Rum Punch….they keep improving!

We always say it is a small world….well it is! As we headed for the marina supermarket we met the boutique manager, a brief conversation quickly established she is from Windsor and knows Bobby King!!!!! Is there anyone out there who does not????

Needless to say I found a bargain in the boutique! Perfect end to a perfect day!
