04-Mar-2009 -- As I am following mostly the same routes, my opportunities get scarcer and scarcer. Today, however, I am approaching the Gulf of Paria, bound for Point Lisas (Trinidad & Tobago), where are going to load 23,000 tons of urea (a special fertilizer) for the Mississippi River.
The weather is fine, and once arrived at 11N 62W, we could clearly see towards SE the entrance to the Gulf of Paria, known as the Bocas del Dragon (Dragon's Mouths).
Looking towards ESE we see the north coast of Trinidad, and towards SSE the Promontorio de Paria, which belongs to Venezuela.
Further, to the SSW, we see the coast of the Peninsula of Paria.
Again looking to left, when approaching Bocas del Dragon, we see one of the various passages through the offlaying islands, here the westernmost - Chacachacare Island and Boca de Navios between Chacachacare and Isla de Huevos.
