Photo Essay: "Down de Islands," Trinidad

/>
Just off the northerwesternmost corner of the island of Trinidad are a collection of 5 tiny islands, known as
the Bocas Islands.  They’re comprised of Gaspar Grande (also known as Gasparee), Chacachacare, Monos, Huevos and
Gasparillo, and are generally populated by lavish vacation homes of wealthy Trinidadians.  Several of these homes
are available for short-term rentals; however, it is more common just to hire a boat for the afternoon and go sailing
among the islands, taking in the scenery and the sunshine.

These photographs were taken on several sailing
trips I’ve taken within the last 3 months or so with my family — starting with sunrise off of Monos Island.  />
Enjoy.
