Embrace The Detours
At BlueFoot Travel we love to embrace the detours.
I think we can safely say we are all experiencing a detour in our lives right now! Most days we embrace it wholeheartedly, other days not so much! How about you?
Yesterday we found out our wonderful detour in St Vincent will be coming to an end soon, as we will be heading to Grenada in a few weeks time.
It will be bittersweet leaving here, as we have had such a lovely time and it has been amazing to be in lockdown here.
But likewise, we are really looking forward to heading south to Grenada and getting Nemo hauled out for the hurricane season and then hopefully we can get ready for next years charter season.
We can often have a small detour during our sailing trips – courtesy of the wind!
A sail from Mayreau to Bequia can take 4 hours when the wind is coming from the East, but if there is some north in the wind it can take up to 8 hours!
On those days, you just have to go with the flow and enjoy the tacking. You’ve got to love sailing!
Maybe once a year, we have no wind at all. I mean not even 1 knot of wind!
So obviously the sails don’t go up, but we do have an incredibly quiet, yet powerful, engine on Nemo, so we can still get to where we want to go.
And when it is quiet and calm, there is time.
Time to take it all in.
And in this instance not having any wind gave us the chance to spend some time photographing these Brown Boobies off the coast of St Lucia on our way to Martinique
