Caught the fast ferry from St. Vincent to Union Island yesterday, arrived here about 6 pm. Spent some time today looking around the island a bit, checking out the cottage friend Stephen rented, and having lunch (conch stew and rice). A day of firsts for me – first time touching the water of the Caribbean, first time seeing a coconut palm, picking fallen coconuts (most were dry, one still a bit green and had water inside), first time eating conch. I am quickly turning from the whitest guy on the island to the pinkest.
Panorama of Clifton area this morning between rain showers.
My first coconut, cottage behind is where we will move to tomorrow.
First wading in the Caribbean – was a strong rip right here
Pink house on the hill where I am staying right now, taken from restaurant in Clifton.
Nice chicken grill set up
There a re a few impressive yachts around, but this one is especially interesting.
