Things are getting screwy.

You have to maintain social distancing to get on the ferry, give id etc to go to Carriacou.

Yet you can go to a pedicurist, tattooist, hair dresser, etc etc. Where is the consistency?

Well there are some great news for the folks on the cruise ships, that wanted to enter Trini.  The government say they can come in.  It is very confusing up here also in Maryland.  Daily the number of cases are going up, hospitalization is going down.  Ah doh get why we are opening up. Now it has been about two months, sine ah got ah hair cut, but ah doh care, keep the place close.

Re: Very mixed messages

I have just been informed the easing of restrictions for beuty purposes, and the change of times, and the use of bus spacing I commented on were bogus.  What bloody fool puts out fake news at a time like this.

There is to be a Government report today at 4pm.

Didn't you say you'd never been to Carriacou? Sounds like a good time to rectify that lol, or better yet: PM!!

Na Na ni naa na, yah boo sucks.

Except as a tour guide or on a mission I don't leave my area, as give or take a beach or view the whole place is pretty much the same. Can't see any point. It's hot, it has Coconut trees, houses, roads, cars, culture... just like St David.

RD, you beat me to those two places as well. I, too, have not, yet, been to either Carriacou or Petite Martinique. In time . . .

I have even briefly visited Ronde Island.  The benefit of having a helicopter.

Carriacou seems pretty distant from everything else in the world.  Sort of like when I visited the island of Rota.  No, I take that back.  Rota really feels like the last place on earth.
