Petit Saint Vincent

After a fun-filled day of exploring the Tobago Cays on Saturday, we ventured over to Petit Saint Vincent on Mother’s Day for breakfast. The food was delicious and quite fulling. Thanks Bev 🙂

The staff was gracious enough to give us a tour of the island paradise where most couples visit for some RnR. What I love most about the island is the sense of seclusion given that the cabins are separated from each other by a generous distance. There is no internet nor television and any requests/orders are made by the ‘flag system’. The telephone is only used in case of an emergency. After our tour we lounged on the beach and thought how lucky are we?

A Glimpse of the Grenadines

My three day sailing adventure up the Grenadines has been by far my best boating experience. Although it was my first sailing trip, and given that I am not a deep water lover, it exceeded all expectations and incentive to do it again. It was a truly authentic experience of sun, sea and sand aboard Savvy. Pictures simply doesn’t do justice. After you’re done viewing you’ll feel compelled to book your trip to The Grenadines.
