There were three cabins and two heads. We allocated the ‘owner’s cabin’ to Mark and Roberta, so the anniversary couple had the larger cabin and private head. Terry and I shared the other head with Mary and Steve.
Roberta and I, on the other hand, were promptly demoted to the position of ‘Galley wenches’. And there we remained.
The resort catered to families, as there were children of all ages present at the bar. Quite a different crowd from that of the “Willy T’s”!
Barrels of fun (really!).
We were also paid a visit by a ‘travelling conch shell salesman’, who motored up in his boat. Both Terry and I and Mark and Roberta made a purchase from him.
Seeing a crowd of people, Terry went over to investigate. He soon motioned us over for ‘the show’. Each evening, the crowd is entertained by the feeding of the fish residing near the dock at Saba Rock. A young man was in the water feeding pieces of fish to huge (3-5’) tarpins and a large stingray. While I was tempted to try taking some underwater shots with my camera, I didn’t have the nerve to stick my hand in the water in case one of the hungry fish mistook it for a piece of fish!
Unfortunately, he also managed to get stung by a jellyfish as he was emerging the stirred up water near shore. He still bears a scar from this encounter.
This included a tour of the famous Callwood Rum Distillery. This distillery is over 100 years old, and still manufactures rum in the traditional manner. Owned by the Callwood family since 1899, they produce a rum known as “Arundel” rum.
Following this, we stopped for a little rum sampling. We tried a white rum (very reminiscent of moon shine), a dark aged rum (not bad), and finally a secret recipe referred to as “Panty Remover”. Guess which one we bought?
Terry stumbled upon this interesting sign when he paid a trip to the men's room of one of the local establishments. Would love to know the background to this ....
Unfortunately, our plane was late departing. We arrived at
Farewell warm azure waters, and hello cactus and desert hills!
