A Trinidad Moment

Inspiration Lady in Chaguaramas

Secured to our mooring ball in Chaguaramas Bay, Trinidad, we were distrubed by the sound of amplified announcements coming from a tour boat moving through the anchorage.

The lady announcer informed those on the tour boat the "yachties come from all over the world to spend the summer in Charuaramas Bay to keep safe from the Hurricanes". She also told the group, and the rest of us listening, that Yachties prefer to be called Cruisers, "if you get a chance to met a cruiser, don't call them Yachties", she warned.

I think I am starting to understand how animals in the Zoo must feel.

  1. Too bad they don't throw peanuts at you.

  2. You go, BR! I'll see you in Australia some Day! Have a great voyage.

    In the Bahamas they called us 'boat roaches'.
