Rained for three days - I suppose they can't help that. But the breakfast was awful - lots of stale bread and birds flying around the dining area constantly pecking at your food! Also loud crickets make it hard to sleep and the air con was dodgy!

Moving on we had a really long journey, 6 miles to next anchorage as wanted to get to Marin for Monday and only 15 miles to go!

But you don't appreciate this until you have the time to sit and think about it. On a boat, passing a small, peaceful, luscious green island in the middle of the Caribbean, with the beating sun high in the sky and the powerful ocean splashing against the side of your man-made craft you seem to ...
... small disaster diverted.
Everyday we put out the fishing lines, we started using the rods, and at least once a day the reel would rattle like crazy as a fish has been caught but after much fighting and grappling with what the boys keep referring to as monster fish - it gets away along with the very expensive lure. The boys give up trying to use the rods, and resort to much stronger hand lines, and on day 5, within a day we have caught a mahi mahi aka Dorado ...
... is a perfect backdrop for the Marina and Marina Village. It has a busy little community with lots of pleasant little boutiques, and restaurants.
Marigot Bay is also the location of one of the islands resorts, where, to our surprise, a wedding was being held. Felt sorry for the bride...it was a really hot and humid day, and I'm sure her make-up was melting.
This resort also had a pool which we were able to use for the afternoon ...
