We spent almost a week on the hook in Salt Whistle Bay (too windy to go to the Keys -- Tropical depression came through). It's a lovely spot. Had a great lobster dinner cooked up on the beach by the family of one of the "boat boys" (he's actually a "boat grandfather").

I asked him how much he wanted for a lobster dinner. He said, "Twenty Euros".

"I don't have Euros", I replied.

"OK, Twenty Dollars".

My wife and I each got 1/2 of a big lobster. USD 40 is a lot for a lobster, but it was a fun night regardless. We ate half and took the rest back to the boat for lunch the next day.

If his "granddaughter" asks you for a contribution to her "school fees", you should politely decline. I've since been told there are no school fees on Mayreau.

Bequia is also very nice.

Have fun.
