July 24, 2012-Getting Around in Trinidad

We fixed the backstay and had a couple more races. We had fun but didn’t win and we didn’t break anything else (lucky us). But now racing season is over and maybe it’s time to get off the boat and see a little of Trinidad.

Organized tours aren’t usually our thing but Jesse James, who runs the local taxi and tour company, makes it so easy we decided to take a few.

Bamboo Cathedral.

We hiked in the forest and saw bamboo but no monkeys.

We walked out onto the famous Pitch Lake where asphalt bubbles to the surface.
