Mustique

The anchorage at Mustique was very quiet with few yachts in as can be seen from the view from (the aptly named) “The View” Restaurant and Bar.

Started re-varnishing the galley sink woodwork.

Deployed the new water catcher for some rain and almost filled the tanks.

Enjoyed some jazz at Basil’s Pop-Up Bar – so called because it is a temporary arrangement whilst the stunning original Basils’ Bar, which projects out over the water on wooden decking, has been demolished and is being rebuilt in what looks like even more stunning mode.

More pleasant walking around the island with friends Johnny and Shelley (Planet Waves) and Rob and Lindy (Sea Shak).

There were fascinating cacti concentrated on the south western, windswept shores of Mustique.

Finally, there was this beautiful old wooden Thames steam Barge on the shore near where we were anchored. The sad story was that it was restored by Felix Dennis (who owned David Bowie’s “Mandalay” property on Mustique and who sponsored the Mustique library) and who died very soon after she was re-launched.
