This may come as a shock but remember that Venus-fly-trap that we bought in Oban? After struggling with the heat and sun in the Caribbean not feeling to fresh our dear pet gave up last week. Sure it might have something to do with that it looked so dead we stopped watering it. But now it’s dead and we’ll bury him/her somewhere in Nelsons Dockyard.
We have some good memories from when Kattla caught his first fly making me proud! Sitting next to her in the cockpit looking at the stars on our crossing. Lots of good memories but you know that when you get a pet you have to prepare that you’ll have to say goodbye some day. Sure Kattla might have been a plant but to the crew she was a pet! 🙂
So how did we get to Antigua you might ask us?! Well, leaving Bequia we spent the night bumping our way up past all the islands up to Les Saints. Anchored next to Pain de Sucre (the spongecake) we had two days of relaxing and snorkeling before heading up to Jaques Custeau’s marine park.
There we snorkeled some more and finally headed out into the sunset and pushed the last bit up to English harbor. This bay have a lot of history and waking up this morning my eyes saw the pillars of the old sail loft.
