After another month of hot dusty boat repairs in Trinidad, two weary sailors took the ferry from Port of Spain to Scarborough in Tobago.
A ten minute drive from the bustling port, in a small rented Jeep, brought us to Moonlight Mountain, or should we say 'Paradise'.
Ginny , our host, was leaning over the balcony with a welcoming smile, from then on things only got better.
As we were staying for ten days, we opted for the self catering studio on the ground floor, ten steps from the lovely little pool and deck, with marvellous views over Scarborough and the sea in one direction , and the rain forest covered hills in the other.
This is a place where you experience the real charm and tranquility of Tobago.
Simple but really comfortable furnishing, plenty of opening windows to allow the breeze to cool you , without the drone of AC.... We felt at home and relaxed.immediately.
Motmots appearing every breakfast time waiting to be fed pieces of cheese, and a glorious garden full of wonderful tropical plants and creatures.
The extra special ingredient was the regular yoga sessions with Ginny, who is an inspirational teacher. Classes in her own studio and also joining her for larger classes at other locations in Tobago.
Our last night there we had a dinner in the garden under the stars with Ginny and her husband Kelly feeling like we were new members of the family.
We will definitely be booking our next visit to this wonderful place at the first opportunity.
