Sailing the Grenadine islands – part 2

Swimming with turtles in Tobago Cays
When I left you in my previous post, we were sailing to Tobago Cays. And as I mentioned, Tobago Cays really is paradise on earth: a couple of cute, tiny, uninhabited islands surrounded by coral reefs, where you’ll befriend all sort of colorful fishes & plenty of turtles!
