From this south shore of Bequia we are looking across to Petite Nevis and I. De Quatre islands.
Piroque (the type of boat) on the hard. Let’s go jump in and cool off!
Hummm. Nolidge is power . . .
This is the La Pompe International Grocery and Liqire Stor! And don’t forget about it.
Food 4 thot.
The small island to the left is the whaling station. Four whales can be hunted in a year.
Water catchment system. Bet it’s overflowing this season.
His t-shirt says: Work Sucks. Stars.
I think this is a catapillar. Grandmama and granddaughter.
I think to be a fisherman must be a lot of work and very long hours, but peaceful at times.
Bet you didn’t know this! Not the traditional St. Vincent flag . . .
Nice waves over nice sharp reefs. Again that is the whaling station in the background. Great walk!

Our short—8 mile+/– sail from St. Vincent to Bequia was uneventful, except for seeing flying fish and two very dark, large fish. Were they porpoise? Noooo, too dark. Sharks? Maybe . . . We love Bequia as most “yachies” do.
Moody Blues is at the tail of the fleet. Lookin’ good, hey?
As we were waiting for a bus there was a Reading is Good rally to promote children learning and wanting to read.
A view to die for . . . as the old saying goes.
Hillside on the east side of the island.
As you can see, lots of fish available and as we’ve always said, very friendly people.
Love the frangipani.
Conch shell tide pool. Unfortunately the shells are empty, having been harvested.
See, friendly! Sweet church.
Not so sweet centipede. Yikes! Where’s its mate? They travel in two’s we hear . . .
Ah, let’s take a rest.

AH, SO THIS IS WHERE MOODY BLUES IS and the 8th Annual Bequia Mt. Gay Music Fest.
FRIENDSHIP BAY, south side of Bequia, one of the 32 islands of St Vincent & the Grenadines, W.I.
YEAH MON! ANYTHING GOES & PORQUE NO?
Beer? Yeah probably: ginger beer. Hairoun means “home of the blessed.”
Kathy, s/v Indigo, & Gene. Diane, s/v Jabulani, with Sean Connery . . .
Dave Mathews, legendary, award winning jazz & blues pianist.
DID WE HAVE FUN OR WHAT??????
