Bequia Ferry

25 May 2012 | Bequia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines
We are loving Bequia (pronounced beck-way), finding lots of accessible dinghy docks, beautiful beaches, friendly locals and a sun that has beamed all day long. We met a local woman today, Cheryl, who sponsors a reading event for school age children two Saturdays a month who needs volunteers to either read with the younger children or listen to the older children and then help them make sense of the book they've just read. We told her we'd be happy to offer our time tomorrow. She's also sponsoring a poetry reading Sunday night which we hope to attend as well. She owns the Fig Tree Restaurant and is a beautiful woman with long dreadlocks and a welcoming smile who seems eager to invite us into her community. Everyone has been very friendly, with the exception of the man who yelled at us about the garbage on Young Island the other day. We're still not sure what that was about, but he was yelling at Ed and Ed finally yelled back when the man continued to yell even after Ed said, "OK, we'll take the garbage back with us to the boat!". At that very moment, the long snake crossed inches from our toes--rememeber me mentioning the snake? It was chaos for a moment or two. Since then, no one has yelled, the snakes have ignored us and the boat vendors have been pleasant and helpful. Tomorrow one of the vendors, Miranda will come by to pick up our laundry on the boat.

Tonight we've been invited to have cocktails and dinner on s/v Sapphire with Caroline and Moby, the couple we met in Dominica who also have a Bristol 41. We're looking forward to visiting with them again. We actually saw them in St. Lucia as well but didn't have the opportunity to get together.
