So long Montserrat
Shortly after posting this we’ll be raising anchor and heading south. We’ll probably head towards Deshaies, Guadeloupe, approx. 40 nm, but you never know. If things are going fantastic, we may just keep on going.
Although our time in Montserrat has been short, we are glad that we visited. In addition to our great island tour with Joe, we took the time yesterday to seek out a hiking trail that we had heard about which leads over the hill to Rendezvous Bay, the anchorage just north of where we are staying. Our friends had told us about this spot but failed to share just how spectacular the beach is. When we arrived, there were no boats anchored there, nor anyone to be seen for that matter. We enjoyed that privacy for an awesome swim, well needed after the steep hike.
As usual, there is no guarantee that we’ll have internet access where we’re heading, especially given that it is a French island, notorious for their lack of available signals. Until such time that you hear from us again, enjoy the following pics and this Jimmy Buffett tune, written about* and recorded on Montserrat.
*That song was written and recorded BEFORE the volcano eruption which devastated much of Montserrat.
Oh, I almost forgot…
