We were heading for a bay called Wallilabou, near the town of Barrouallie. When we arrived we once again took a mooring and tied back near the Anchorage Restaurant. This was where the movies "Pirates of the Caribbean" were filmed and much of the movie sets are still in evidence.
We stayed a couple of nights and wandered around fascinated by some of the paraphenalia that was lying around
We were able to clear customs here, but had to report to the police at Barrouallie the next day for immigration, so the walk into the town on a Sunday was interesting. A complete contrast between the men and youths lolling about outside the rum shacks and the evangelistic meetings that were taking place. Every couple of hundred metres there seemed to be a church or building with singing and preaching, almost as though they were in competition with one another.
Wallilabou Bay was incredibly sheltered and the nights were still and peaceful except for the bats which seemed to be attracted to Cuttyhunk. Trying to photograph them was fun.
