In the year’s time since we were last in Bequia, the waterfront boardwalk has been completely rebuilt. You can once again meander along the waterfront all the way from the edge of town down towards the beach at Lower Bay. And that’s a great thing because there’s quite a nice selection eateries and other shops to choose from as we make our way along the water. Would it be Frangipani today or one of the other cafes? No, we decided to try Tommy’s Restaurant back towards town, and we can highly recommend both the food and the service at this tastefully decorated casual place.
Joy’s scooter just fits in some places along the boardwalk. In one or two places she asked me to help her navigate a particularly tight or tilting section. We know, most people don’t think twice about where or how they walk – they simply do it. But the rewards are more than worth the effort required. After all, we could be sitting home watching a soap opera. Tough choice.
Did you know there are at least four sail makers on this tiny island? Three good sized chandleries carrying an assortment of gear, one with duty free pricing. A great fishing gear shop. And much more, all on the tiny island of Bequia. Perhaps this focus tells you a bit about where their heart lies – with the sailors.
We’ve come to love this island and reluctantly readied the yacht to move on.
