Hello, Carriacou.

22 July 2007

Last Thursday, on my first trip to Carriacou, I was greeted by this scene.

The ferry ride took a little over two hours in rough seas.
During the ride I had the pleasure of sitting beside two talkative 5-yr old girls.
They were full of questions like:

"Is that a dolphin, Josh?"
"Do sharks eat people, Josh?"
"How much longer, Josh?"
"I like your shirt. Can I touch it?"
"Where are the dolphins, Josh?"
"I like chocolate, do you like chocolate?"
"Do you have a wife?"
"How many old are you?"
"Where is your mommy?"
"Are we there yet, Josh?"

I enjoyed much of the conversation but a little peace would have been nice.
Their parents were sound asleep and unable to intervene on behalf of my sanity, so I resorted to trickery.

"Look, girls! Another dolphin!"

(I lied)

"Oops! You missed it. We have to be very quiet if we want to see another one. They might hear us and be scared away..."

Approaching the pier at Hillsborough, Carriacou.

I'll bet the red boat would make the trip a bit faster.

You can always try the be quiet contest. Who ever is quiet the longest wins a Skittles!

Nice blues. I like the effect of the water on the window.

I never got around to getting out there. I've heard it's really nice.

it's much more fun to ride up top, hehe. You might catch a glimpse of some flying-fish!
