A WELCOMED BREAK
We had a nice few days break in Tobago. We particularly enjoyed the air conditioned flat, we even had a sleep the first afternoon; oh how sad. Our flat was within easy walking distance of the beach and a tourist strip with shops and restaurants. We ate out each night and tried some local cuisine which was very tasty and inexpensive.

We hired a car and circumnavigated the island. It was a good way to check out the various anchorages for future reference. I don't know whether we will return as there isn't much there. But we had a nice relaxing time and came back to Trinidad ready to continue working.

The weather has been hot and humid and for the past week we have had fires on the hill close to the marina. No attempt is made to put the fire out unless it threatens property. For days Eye Candy has been showered with ash and our eyes and throats are sore from the smoke. Needless to say our clothes and everything on the boat smells. Thankfully today it is raining; we are hoping it will continue long enough to make a difference.

SO WHAT'S NEXT
We will leave Trinidad in the next few days for Granada which is eighty miles north. We are looking forward to going back to cruising.
Love Candy xx
