After the Hop from Trinidad to Carriacou that was written about previously, we stayed in Carriacou only a few days. We were there to say our condolences and farewell to our cruising friend Liz on Moosetracks, anchored in Tyrrel Bay. Her husband Devin passed away suddenly on their boat a few weeks ago. They have been cruising for the last number of years. We first met them in Georgetown, in the Bahamas and traveled with them and crossed paths many times, including road trips here in the islands. ...

The authorities were waiting with a dozen forms to be filled out, many in triplicate or more. They are however, very accommodating as they supply the carbon paper. To our younger reads, please google “carbon paper” and learn what preceded copy machines and paperless transactions. With a strong British tradition, all forms must be completely filled out, errors corrected with single line and initialed. By now I almost memorized our passport numbers, gross and net tonnage and the odd way Europeans ...

A few days ago, we took a Jesse James tour to visit Yerette, the “Home of the Hummingbird”.  Yerette is the private home of Dr. Theo Ferguson and his wife, Gloria high up the slopes of the Maracas Valley in northern Trinidad. Dr. Ferguson retired from lecturing agriculture in the University of West Indies a number of years ago and took up photography in and around Trinidad. He was drawn to hummingbirds, a challenging subject, but soon was able to capture beautiful images of these birds. By desig...

Columbus's Footprints

On the south west corner of Central Park in New York City on a very tall pedestal stands a statue of Christopher Columbus. Columbus Circle. We have been there many times. Columbus, however, was never closer than 1500 miles from that spot. In 1492, Christopher Columbus came across a small sand spit of land after sailing west from Spain. Without the aid of GPS, or even a good time piece, it was difficult for his navigator to determine how far west (longitude) he was from Spain. He guessed he arri...

Well its October, the tenth month of the year. In the northern temperate zones, the last vestiges of warm summer days dwindle to memories, while early signs of winter hint at things that will come. Leaves show their true colors. Yes, green leaves are not their real color, only the color of chlorophyll in them. Fortunately, they need the chlorophyll in them to live. Put another way, what we see is the life force in leaves, not their true color. Does that schema of being permeate other living thin...

A Jamming Pot Luck Musical Hurricane Time

I don’t know if the energy of a hurricane comes from the people of Trinidad or their energy comes from the hurricanes that spawn in the area. It is true that many hurricanes and tropical storms develop off this island and don’t affect their place of birth, much like famous people who have little impact on their own place of birth. I mention this as tropical storm Kirk is gathering steam far to the east. It is heading west and projected to transit north of here as almost all storms do. Last nigh...
