Bristol Rose has an extensive library of boat maintenance books.
As well as researching locations online, we pick up the free maps and brochures from visitor information centers. Cruising guides we have found helpful include: Doyle’s Cruising Guides to the Windward Islands and Trinidad and Tobago, and “A Cruising Guide to Trinidad and Tobago” by Stephen J. Pavlidis.
“Morgan Freeman & Friends Caribbean Cooking for a Cause” by Wendy Wilkinson and Donna Lee is constantly out of our bookshelf these days. Wandering through the markets and seeing the fresh tropical fruits and vegetables that are essential to the recipes inspires us to create some of the dishes featured in the book, as enjoyed by Morgan and his friends. The cookbook sprang out of the Grenada Relief Fund set up to help rebuild Grenada following Hurricane Ivan in 2004. See our food blog.
