Wry is sad to leave Tobago

September 2nd, 2008

Wry is sad to leave Tobago. Charlottville is as good a place as Epicurus has ever laid down an anchor. They say a new cruise ship dock is going to soon be built there so it’s good we had a chance to see it before. Nothing ruins a place faster than cruise ships. Ok, maybe charter boats. At any rate, Wry hopes to return here in time for Christmas.

Yesterday morning we took our last ride on Julita (see photos as soon as I can get them uploaded) across the bay. We sailed under a rainbow and dolphins came by to greet. I can’t believe it gets much better. As I write, we’re passing down the north coast of Tobago en route to Chaguaramas, Trinidad where this will be uploaded. Chag sucks, of course, except for the fact that all manner of boat services are available there. Best this side of Florida, I believe. Plus you don’t have to go to Florida! We’re not looking forward to the rolling bay, ferries, tide, oil & pollution but it’s only for a few days. Epi will haul out and we’re off to the states for three months. If you’re one of the few people to visit this site, do write. Our old phone numbers should be good by the middle of September as well.
