Bequia (pronounced Bekway) is part of St Vincent
and the Grenadines. The place names make you expect old style pirates including
Johnny Depp around every headland!! Other names hint at the days of Empire be it
French or British.
Try Port Elizabeth, Admiralty Bay, Horseshoe Reef,
End of the World Reef, Petit Tabac. There are hints of all cultures in these
islands and the people are proud of all the aspects of their heritage as well as
very independant now.
Just left Bequia, after an interesting night!
Another yacht slipped their anchor and ended up alongside us with a bump about
2am!! They managed to sort themselves out but only after several fraught minutes
as Stephen and I ran about the deck in our sleepwear i.e. nothing. The skipper
swam over this morning to see if any damage and to apologise. He was upset and
it was good of him to come and see if we were alright. Karacool has a few
scratches but no real damage that we can see.
Will try one photo as internet is restricted at the
moment. This is Bequia's east coat (Windward side) looking at the Atlantic. It
is lush, hot and windy here.
Ciao for now, A n S
