Isla Grande, Islas del Rosario, Colombia, October 8th and 9th, 2012
We enjoyed a lovely 27 hours of mini-vacation at Isla Grande, one of the Islas del Rosario, off the coast from Cartegena. We were eight for this outing: the maximum that On Delay can comfortably accommodate for overnight guests. Felipe and Elsy came with us from Santa Marta, and we picked up Robb and Jen in Cartegena — they’d taken the bus from Santa Marta a few days earlier.
We had a lovely anchorage to ourselves off Isla Grande. We enjoyed swimming and snorkeling and scuba diving from the boat. We spent the midday hours at a little beach resort: cocktails by the pool, a tad of tikki shopping, and a tasty lunch with all the starches (coco rice, french fries, fried plantains, and fried yucca) followed by napping in the shaded hammocks.
Robb went out in the dinghy with his good camera and took some glamour shots of On Delay. This is the nicest:
