  • The lure of poaching

    Union Island Local Customs

    The lure of poaching is universal and Union Island is a good part of this universe. Some individuals just cannot help being astray from the flock and the rules that keep it going forward. There was this fellow who on two consecutive days committed two consecutive infractions of the law. The first day he was out catching lobsters despite the fact...

    This is not on Union Island. It's a small 135 acre island, about a 10 minute boat ride from Union....

  • Animal welfare

    Union Island Local Customs

    Animals on Union island are up and close not unlike the rest of the Grenadines. The goats seem to be the local favourites as far as domesticated creatures go and the number of stray dogs is overwhelming. Speaking of the dogs, the job of guarding properties is bestowed to much more vicious fellows than the happy-go-lucky mutts. They know the rules...

  • Stay

    Canouan Local Customs

    Finding accommodation off the cuff sort of speak has the added advantage of peering into the psyche of the locals with the precondition of course that conclusions should not be overlaid on the general public because they are in a different “relationship” with the foreigners. My first “find” was an establishment already checked out and advertised by...

  • Kids

    Canouan Local Customs

    Two scenes at the same spot exposing life of the little ones of different species. The first one involves a little goat-boy who had just lost his mother and neighed mournfully in order to attract her attention and possibly provoke a response. Somehow it had mistaken a goat-aunt with her two kiddies for his own mother and had strayed off course...

  • The Best Callalloo Soup

    Mayreau Restaurants

    Mayreau is a tiny island, but it has a few restaurants. We ended up at Righteous Robert's because we'd been there 7 years earlier. We loved it then and we loved it now. Robert treated us like old friends - he couldn't have possibly remembered us - but we felt very welcomed. We had some deep-fried fish chunks that were the best I've ever tasted....

  • Hair Braiding

    Mayreau Favorites

    While you're at Righteous Robert's, see if Sharon is there to braid your hair. She does an excellent job. The food at Righteous Robert's. Try the Callalloo Soup and the fresh baked bread. Macintosh is a fabulous chef!!

  • Rasta Man! - Mayreau

    Mayreau Restaurants

    We were probably the first tourists of the season (a month early). A colorful, comfortable, caribbean decorated restaurant with attitude and great food. We met the owner "Righteous" Robert Rice, a lively rastafarean who paints & decorates the place himself, and were graced with his company for the duration of our meal. Ask him the story about the...
