We were in Bequia during the “off season” but can only imagine mid November to March that all the local restaurants and bars will be hopping! Marie’s and Mac’s were the only places open during our stay. We liked having the town to explore ourselves and it made it easier to connect with some of the few cruisers that were in the anchorage

Only in Bequia- The famous Raphael “Scocony” Holder’s personal concert 

 

Bequia “Island of the Clouds” living up to it’s name!

This was our view during our four day stay in Bequia. 20-30 knot gusts of wind howling down the hilltops caused a couple of the chartered catarmans to lose their holding

What Happens when you are ejected from your dingy underway and don’t have a “safety kill switch” tethered to you:

Thank goodness the young women on this 30 hp dingy was able to swim away before the dingy ran her over. She actually swam to our boat while after at least 45 minutes local cruisers managed to jump inside the dingy and regain control

Note: always wear a tethered kill switch when operating your dingy

We have been very busy getting ready. Replaced alternator belt, changed the oil, made water, serviced 4 wenches, sealed a hatch, provisioned, laundry and sewed a new shade awning for the aft cockpit… ready for our passage to Bonaire
