Bequia - a quick visit

Bequia (pronounced Beckway) is a small island and one of the 32 which make up St.Vincent and the Grenadines. The name means" island of the cloud", but when we arrived it was very hot and sunny. Our ship anchored in Admiralty Bay and we were tendered into Port Elizabeth which is a tiny town of small shops and bars. We walked 1.5 km to the top of the hill where once there was an 18th century fort called Fort Hamilton. Now there are 6 cannon overlooking the water and no evidence of the previous fort. The views from the top are good though. We walked back down to the town and luckily we stopped on the waterfront for a beer. We just got ourselves seated when the heavens opened but by the time we had finished our drink it was over and the sun was out again so we could catch the next tender back to our ship, Silver Wind, part of the Silversea fleet. We could have gone to a turtle sanctuary but it had some negative reviews so did not go. There are beaches and swimming and sailing and that is it.

Fortunately we are now on a lovely small cruise ship and have already met some nice people and of course the food and socialising are great. When we sailed out of Bridgetown the night before it was a lovely starry night. As usual we were the last people in the restaurant so missed the entertainment. This afternoon we are going to the Team Trivia and hope to get a good team together.
