Day 2 – Bequia
The highlight of my trip was most definitely my visit to Bequia. For whatever random reason I’ve always wanted to visit Bequia, so even when the sky was behaving quite schizophrenic on Saturday morning, I was super stoked to hop aboard the 8am ferry with Odini, Kern, Louis, Karen of SoKa and Jeremy of Fashion is Payne to Bequia.
The ferry itself is an hour-long ride and EC$45. Not too shabby to get to paradise.
I love the colours in St Vincent.
Once we disembarked (Odini didn’t get sick, much success!) we trod off in search of breakfast. Odini seemed hell bent on acquiring Mac’s Pizza, which was of course closed when we got there, so we opted for breakfast from the Gingerbread House instead. Not too bad, a bit pricy but such is life when the main clientele of a place is comprised of yachties.
Instead of the recommended gingerbread, I opted for a shortbread cookie, a macchiato and some waffles which turned out to be pancakes.
After everyone finished eating we set off again to Princess Margaret’s Bay, which is a relatively short walk from the harbour.
Just down some stairs…
And around a bend…
And then you’re there!
One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to. Bequia was everything I was expecting. The only thing that could have made it better was if the water wasn’t so blasted cold, and if the wind didn’t keep blowing sand all over my face every time I tried to sun worship.
If you look closely you can see the entire right side of my face (my right, not yours) is completely covered in sand.
Following some spelunking at a cave near the end of Princess Margaret Bay, we decided to head over to Lower Bay next.
People who live in St Vincent have NO excuse not to have amazing legs…everything is a climb boy…
But then you get where you’re headed and it all seems worth it.
For those of you who were wondering, we did eventually get Mac’s Pizza, on our way back to catch the 4pm boat back to the mainland. Entirely too short a stay in beautiful Bequia, but good company, good food and gorgeous surroundings can make the time fly.
Some pretty good pizza to end an amazing day…like the boat said ‘No Complain'(ts).
Now when the world gets me down and I go to my happy place in my head, I’ll be in Bequia, xoxo.
