January 26, 2007 - January 30, 2007 - Rodney Bay, St. Lucia

We spent a few days in Rodney Bay getting the boat cleaned up for Suzy’s upcoming visit and working on some boat projects.
We were able to pick up our replacement grill grates at Island Water World (remember the Anguilla debacle?) and a bunch of other bits and pieces that we needed - including the shiny stuff in the picture above, which is meant to become an additional layer of insulation for our freezer.

In between boat projects, we enjoyed some rum punches and rotis at Jambe De Bois. They also have a very good book swap. The owner is involved with local kitty rescue group, so we donated some of Lenore's food stores to her.

A solid northern swell came in while we were anchored in front of Pigeon Island. We started rolling from the shore reverb, so we upped anchor and moved into deeper water. Sten went over to the windward beach near us to see if the surf was doing anything interesting, but it was too sloppy to bother with.

After a few days it was time to head south to pick up Suzy. We had a long day sail, with conditions that ranged from squalls to breezeless blinding heat, down the coasts of both St. Lucia and St. Vincent to travel from Rodney Bay down to Young Island Cut. But the scenery was stunning.
