Yesterday while our friends on YOLO were working on a fuel tank issue, we sailed from Ronde Island to Carriacou and anchored in our own private bay between White and Saline Islands. Scott snorkeled while Isla and I strolled along a deserted beach looking for shells and other treasures. It was such a simple afternoon yet so enjoyable and reminded us of our peaceful and solitary days exploring the Exumas. Unfortunately there are plans to develop the uninhabited and pristine White Island, making yet another tiny corner of this beautiful planet a little less untouched. I know it's par for the course, but it still makes me a little sad to imagine this little slice of paradise dotted in beach cabanas designed for tourists.
Anyway, we're now anchored in Tyrrel Bay with our friends and plan to move over to Sandy Island this afternoon. Here's a bunch of pictures of what the past couple days have looked like from our perspective since sometimes words just don't cut it. I hope you enjoy. Full days have led to very full lives as of late. We're pretty thankful over here.
|Isla's attention span - whether she's playing with her toes or toys - has increased exponentially.|
|Her independence has also flourished - she likes to do everything on her own!|
|Sailing up the coast of Grenada.|
|Still loving our harness and bumbo seat underway.|
|She likes to explore the deck with mama (clipped in, of course). This child is honestly part monkey.|
|Sunset off Ronde Island.|
|Morning paddle sesh.|
|Lots of play dates with this little cutie!|
|A bunch of besties right here!|
|16 weeks pregnant with our twinnies. Must get it laying down, standing I just look "thicker" and not pregnant yet.|
|Beach time is a daily occurrence. Sometimes two or three times a day.|
|Drawing in the sand with sticks is fun.|
|More SUPing. We love our inflatable paddle board. Best boat toy ever, in our opinion.|
