We had a fantastic sail down from Martinique to Bequia, leaving at 4am and arriving 14 hours later just as it was going dark. There weren't as many yachts here as we expected, there still aren't, but it's great to be back. Bequia has nailed it for the cruising community: friendly locals, decent provisioning, a raft of boat services and a plethora of bars and restaurants, some even pretty stylish. So we're delighted to be back.
We've been enjoying ourselves with friends old and new, hiking, socialising, entertaining and generally having a good time. Tomorrow is another cruiser pot-luck get together at a waterside restaurant, you take your own meats to grill and a side dish to share. Should be fun, especially as we know a fair few that are going.
In less than three weeks we'll be waving goodbye to the Eastern Caribbean and bound for South America and our next big adventure. We'll be sad to say goodbye but are very excited about the year to come.
So Merry Christmas from the sunshine and beauty of Bequia. We hope you all have a great time!
