|The easiest place to leave your trash in 11 years cruising
A drive by trash boat - just throw it in.

sometimes for weeks offshore
|Shrimp Boats wait for the start of the season
|Canals criss cross the town
|Some are quite attractive but others, with little

original cay and have lovely gardens, but not many.

only 1 occupied.

|The landmark hotel on Dunbar Rock
|Some of our walks took us along the endless beaches
|That's Dave on the right and the manager Klause of the
