Steady winds. Partly cloudy.

Leisurely morning at PSV. Sailed to Clifton Bay to do departing customs. Bought a few more supplies. Had ice cream at hotel.

Headed south. First stop was Hillsborough Bay on Carriacou to do customs. Then sailed to Tyrell Bay. Immediately attacked by aquatic vendors. Decided to splurge and buy lobster. Vendors love to use character assassination on each other. Sue went swimming. Discovered that one anchor hadn't set. Short period of panic, then everything righted. Stunning sunset.

Lobster dinner turned out to be exquisite. We watched the lobster-man go out on his boat about sunset, pull up a lobster trap, then return to the beach where he built a fire -- he cooked our lobster, then brought it out to us right when we requested. And all for about US$6! The lobster was huge and we dipped the meat in lime juice and butter. Ah, decadence!
