The next boat to approach was selling fish (there was no real duplication of services - clearly these enterprising gents had their markets cornered). The vendor did a drive by, showing his wares, and waited for some interest. We flagged him over, he tied up and we saw what he had for sale. I think his name was John and he said his father had caught the fish that morning. Beautiful, fresh fish. Again, I have to marvel. Coming from a town where the ocean is quite far away, and therefore, so is fresh ocean catch - I always feel the need to take advantage of these opportunities when they become available. We decided on four small red snappers, which would be cooked on the grill that evening. We enjoyed them prepared simply - rinsed with lime and salt, then slathered with some Caribbean green seasoning, and cooked over charcoal. YUM! The meat fell away from the frame. Yes, there were bones, but it just made us take longer to savour our catch. I am beginning to realize that perhaps I need to live nearer to the ocean...

Mayreau is a beautiful island with a stunning beach at Saltwhistle Bay. If you get the chance to stop here, you should - so you can experience some unspoiled, not-too populated Caribbean.
