It is definitely regatta time in Bequia. The boats are packing themselves into the harbor each day. Just when you think there is no more room for another boat to anchor, one manages to squeeze himself in to the chagrin of those he is now on top of. There are dinghies zipping by at all hours, all loaded to the brim with rowdy people. We no longer feel quite as safe taking our long swims from the boat to shore as we may get run over by one of those speeding dinghies.
But more people also means more fun in the area of people watching. It is like a circus, not knowing which ring to look at at any given moment. We are also catching up with lots of familiar faces and meeting new and interesting people too. The races do not start until Thursday, but the parties have already begun.
In the midst of all of this hoopla, we still find time for some R&R. We take walks on our favorite beach (Princess Margaret Beach) and float in the calm waters. We have also discovered a new hangout called the Green Boley. It is a small place, right on the water and they make the best calalloo soup and conch roti this side of Grenada. We will be going there several times a week now!
It is great to be in Bequia again!
