Prickly Bay, Grenada
Ever since we arrived in the Tropics, you may have detected a somewhat unenthusiastic approach to my reporting (that is why, I am so grateful to Marion for her contribution to this blog!). One reason is that even as I write this, at least a hundred other Caribbean blogs are being written by our sailing neighbours and personally, I have very little to add to the subject. Another reason is that, although the locals are extremely friendly and helpful, and the islands are lush and beautiful with picturesque white sand beaches and turquoise waters, this just isn't our cup of tea, so to speak.
Our main reason for being here is to restore our good boat Sarema to her pre-Arctic glory and when the work is done, we'll continue our journey. But first Latte and Riitta have to get back to Europe so that Pekka can start working on the boat.
