Anchored out in a clear, turquoise lagoon surrounded by an archipelago of uninhabited islands known as the Tobago Cays, we could have sworn we were back in the Bahamas. We spent three fun days here at anchor with our friends on s/vs Moorahme, Discofish, and Renaissance II.

Together, we had a blast exploring the beaches, reefs, and turtle habitats. We were especially impressed by the amount of marine life and the healthiest coral we’ve seen anywhere else in the Caribbean. I didn’t want to stop snorkeling and could have gone for days without seeing everything on the reef – not that our photos do it justice – sigh.

We’re feeling like lucky ducks that, for the most part, we’ve had a lot of these spots to ourselves. Save for a smattering of charter boats, things have been peaceful, and we’ve had our pick of anchoring spots. I’m feeling great about our decision to leave Grenada in October, just slightly ahead of the masses.

I know, I know. Stop with the photos of pretty beaches and amazing water, already. It’s a struggle, people.

This anchorage. Too beautiful for words.
