Bequia


We had a wild ride down from Marigot Bay on St Lucia to Bequia (Beck-way), part of St Vincent and the Grenadines.  Enjoyed a spectacular interaction with a pod of dolphins - Pam saw one leap out of the air and do a flip!  They must be a different species than the ones we we saw up north.  They seem to be smaller and as they approached the boat they leaped high into the air.  They look like they are having terrific fun racing up to the boat and riding the bow wave.  It is VERY difficult to get a decent picture.  



The Bequia Regatta was this weekend so the harbour was full and the music was blaring.  We met up with Bobby and Leslie on Gra'inne and headed over to watch the running start of the local sloop races. The wind was up so there was lots of excitement.

Bequia fashions?

Racing!

 We had a great meal at the Deckhouse, a new restaurant in Bequia, located where Daffodil's Marine Services used to be.  We are anchored right off their dock so it was a quick trip for a fabulous meal with terrific service.

Waiting for weather to head farther south; to Mayreau, Union Island, Carriacou and Grenada.

  2. Grenada bound,
    You better get right on the liquor cab maintenance. Could be some mold in there.
