Location: Cliff Tree Bay, St. Vincent
Welcome to St. Vincent!
Today was yet another very fun day. We started off the morning in Bequia, prepping for our passage to St. Vincent. We motored for about three hours and spent most of the passage hanging out, studying, or seeing the best views ever on bow watch. We made it to this awesome bay, which is super cool. Not quite sure what the name of it is, but Freddie decided to call it ” Cliff Tree Bay”. This is by far my favorite anchor spot yet! The water is so clear that you can see all the sea urchins sitting on the bottom. We are also right next to a little secluded beach, which is really pretty. After we anchored, we ate lunch and then went down to the saloon to take our ICC exam for the Seamanship class. Once that was done, we grouped off and made our way to snorkeling in a bat cave. It was absolutely incredible. When you first get to the cave, you are met with some gorgeous rocks along with a bunch of cute fish swimming around. In the cave, bats filled the entire ceiling. Once you look down, though, you get to see what almost looks like a trench filled with multiple schools of fish. The best part of our snorkel, though, was that Heather and I were the first to go through the cave while the boys were too scared to even follow behind us. That quickly ended in Guigo trying to give me a hug in the water because he was too freaked out and needed someone next to him. After we took the dinghy back to the boat, we all got together and went snorkeling around the bay. We snorkeled for a couple of hours and got to see some pretty cool things like a Balloon fish, an eel, a Lionfish, and some other cool sea creatures. We then swam back to the boat and took our boat showers with the beautiful sunset in the background. We wrapped up the day with dinner and my squeeze question, “Describe an embarrassing story only using three words”. Some answers will definitely need a backstory later tonight. To top off the day, we lost our beloved salty bucket to the ocean because someone forgot to tie it off before dropping it. Bad day to be a salty bucket. 🙁 Today was awesome, and I can’t wait to spend another day in the wonderful Cliff Tree Bay tomorrow!
Shout out, Mom!
