We also went to see the (apparently) world famous pitch lake from which (again apparently) the majority of the world’s road are surfaced, the Asa Wright Nature Park where we saw a huge variety of beautifully coloured birds in a lovely rainforest environment as well as touring to the Caroni Swamp to see the Scarlet Ibis flying home to roost. My brother Ben was also in Trinidad on his boat Midnight for a while, so Clarabella and Midnight were alongside each other after 8000 miles of sailing apiece. The cruising around Trinidad took us to Scotland Bay and Chacachacare Bay, both beautiful lush green bays in which we could hear the howler monkeys in the trees as we watched green parrots flying overhead. We very much enjoyed Trinidad!
