Bequia, Grenadines/St Vincent
Our walk to Port Elizabeth. First we pass by the Plantation House. This property has been abandoned & in ruins for several years but last year renovations began . . . it now has a wonderful restaurant & bars and they continue to restore the little cottages, readying them for next season.
Next we walk along the Belmont Walkway . . . fabulous views of Admiralty Bay, the natural harbour, along with several small hotels, restaurants & bars. In the mornings a stop by the Gingerbread to catch up with friends and occasionally a coffee & cinnamon bun is on the agenda.
In Port Elizabeth . . . Front Street, the main street, is lined with local vendors on the water side and small shops, restaurants and bars as we head to the Bequia Tourist Centre and the ferry docks.

Walking toward the north shore, through the village of Hamilton, we pass more restaurants and the model boat-builders workshops and the Bequia Maritime Museum. A little further along (and up a steep hill) is the 18th century Hamilton Battery-- a great lookout point with wonderful views of the harbour.
