This was going to be our last full day in Tobago so we fired up the mighty Suzuki and headed up the northwestern coast, in the direction of Plymouth. We weren't going to go very far; the rest of the family had made the great circle tour of the island in their outing yesterday, and the Suzuki was not the right appliance for twisty-road travel.
