Re: Going BVI in May thinking about St Lucia in July
I've sailed the Windwards many years ago with my dad. Martinique, St Lucia, St Vincent, Mustique, Carriacou. It was another world. Amazing trip. Marigot Bay was a blast. I still dream about that trip and it was 35 years ago. I remember we were motoring up a narrow river in St Lucia. As we passed what looked like a small dock we slowed down and my father yelled at someone I could not see, as they were in some small hut on the dock. They yelled back something and then my father yelled at us, "Chicken or fish?" He took the head count and yelled it back to them. We continued up the river a short ways and anchored. Later we packed the dinghy with wine and beer and went back to the dock for dinner under the stars on the dock. I had the chicken. The whole trip was like that. Remote and intoxicating. I miss my dad.
