These pictures are from when we went up to the Commancheros steel pan practice. These are pictures of the mas parade costumes which they prepare on site as well. Each costume has a theme, i.e. love, strength, happy etc. From these pictures they make the costumes.
Here are the ladies working on making these elaborate costumes
Head dresses on a rack. Not sure if they are finished or not.
The finished product. These pics were taken by a friend at the parade of bands on the final day of carnival.
Here we are getting ready for the hash which was located near the town of Grenville. Our friends Sunny, John and Ann are posing with us in the photo. It was a wonderful hike about 3.5 miles. We crossed a river, climbed up a very steep incline, walked through a farmers land where the "road" was paved with mangos. I could not believe all the mangos. Saw goats, bulls and a huge tree whose trunk was over 15 feet wide. It was magnificent. It must have survived hurricane Ivan. The island lost about 90% of their nutmeg trees during Ivan.
On a spur of the moment decision, we joined a dinghy drift. A bunch of dinghies tie together and drift around the anchorage, sharing snacks while laughing and having a good time. The sunset was fantastic. We got to know more people from the anchorage. The dinghy next to us brought their dog so I was a happy camper.
