Handyman Special: A Fixer-Upper in Scarborough, Tobago

We loved wandering Scarborough, Tobago. That's the little island north of Trinidad in the Caribbean Sea.


This tiny island is 26 miles long and 6 miles wide, so it's easy to explore in a day.


It's so rich with history; Columbus discovered it in 1498.


The island has terrific veiws, a gorgeous rainforest full of colorful birds, and lots of architectural eye-candy like this decrepit vine-overgrown building just up from the docks.


Tobago is worth a stop, and cabbies cost only $25/hour.
