April in November

We just finished our second week on the island paradise of Tobago and we have made our way to Man of War bay on the eastern tip of the island.  My cousin April made the long trek from San Francisco to Tobago and helped us move the boat over 30 NM of open water.  We had a beautiful sail although the wind and waves kicked up the last hour or two of the trip with head seas of 4′ to 5′, not the best point of sail for this boat.   We did manage to snag two Black Fin Tunas and had really fresh Sushi at 8:30 in the morning.  It was incredibly good!

We had a really great week of hiking, SCUBA diving, eating, playing dominoes and enjoying sunsets and sundowners on the aft deck.  We hope she returns soon for a longer visit next time!  Here are a few photos from our week:
