Union Island

After leaving Carriacou we sailed to Petite St. Vincent where we anchored for the night. The next morning we sailed to Clifton on Union Island where we checked in to St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The harbor is beautiful but small, but we found a good spot and went into town to do a little shopping and the paperwork.

At only 2467' STOL aircraft are common on Union Island
  Pilots always have to check out airports, so we walked the short distance to the airport and out to the end of the runway where we had a nice view to the North.

  We also visited a tiny island built atop discarded conch shells. They play loud music and pour stiff drinks, and no one is a stranger for long. The next day we did a little snorkeling then topped up our groceries in preparation for sailing to Bequia.
