The Color of the Grenadines, by LO

We broke a record this March in Portland, OR.  It’s nothing to be proud of, in fact, it’s down right miserable that it rained 30 of the 31 days last month.  That is why, if you’ve lived here long enough, you know to plan a trip in March to a warm, sunny and ideally, tropical destination.

Ginnie and I got our bareboat certification last summer through San Juan Sailing.  Our Skipper and instructor spends his winters in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, so when he casually said, “You guys should come down and go sailing with me this winter”, we took it to heart and made it our mission to get down there.  Our skipper, Chris Rundlett, set us up with a boat through the charter company he works for,
Barefoot Yacht Charters in St. Vincent.

The Grenadines are the southern most of the Caribbean islands, almost to Venezuela.  The trade winds are constant which make the world-class sailing spectacular.  The islands are pristine and un-developed, as far as big resorts and hotels.  The people are open, friendly and sincere.  They seem to be genuinely happy and content, and no wonder – the skies are cerulean blue, the water aqua-marine, and the boats and buildings are adorned with a kaleidoscope of colors that are perfect under the intense equatorial sun.  This sweet community of Clifton on Union Island shows how color works here.

    Winter has worn me out with the cold and snow. We had many “snow days” off school and I just want school to progress and be done in June! I am happy to report that my daffodils are blooming, so spring must be around the corner!

      Do you live in the northeast or midwest? Both have really gotten pounded with snow this winter. We’ve just had rain, rain, rain in the northwest- the daffodils have come and gone and the tulips are up next – spring must be near!:)

    The blue color of the picnic tables are great but
    there is no color close to it among Yolo products.

      Hi- We have a cobalt blue, PETAL .05, that’s close to the blue of the picnic tables – it would give the same affect.
      Thanks for your interest and your keen eye.:)
