Day 0 - Saturday 24 August 2013
Inspired by Bear's photo journal of a couple of years ago, decide to do a short daily diary accompanied by short clips of YouTube video.
Day 0 is travel day, so little to report - but it was smooth all the way. Virgin from London to Barbados was on time, SVG to Bequia was 30 minutes early(!) and Gideon's sons were waiting at the airport with our rented jeep. Easy.
We did reflect, however, on how Barbados airport has improved immeasurably in the 10 years we've been coming to Bequia. Spacious, air-conditioned, decent shops and food options, and a business lounge for those that want to pay. Such a contrast to the hot and crowded conditions we first encountered.
Saturday evening was spent winding down in the pool and, despite heavy rain overnight (good for the water tanks!) Bequia has woken to a glorious morning. 20 second video from 9am here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wv-2RfC75i8
Roll on Day 1!
