Ancient ruins, giant trees and mountain passes

To get more food we walked across the mountain, paid a local to drive us to town on the other end of the island, then back and a boat trip back to our yacht with all the groceries!

The road trip up over the mountains was spectacular, if somewhat hair-raising, as the road zigzagged periously with sections washed away and trees all over the place.

The driver stopped to show us ancient ruins on the way and we paused at the mountain peaks to admire the stunning views. This island has so much to see and it’s amazing to see the varied topography and vegetation.

The climate varies so much around the island that you can get most local fruit growing all year round. We’ve managed to hit mango season in each bay so far much to the boys relief, and there is a never ending supply of bananas and pamplemousse.
