Chris and I first visited the Grenadines in 2002, aboard a crewed charter. Talk about decadence! Captain and cook for ten guests on a 45’ catamaran, all-inclusive food and drink, and enjoyable crew and passengers from the U.S., England, France, and South Africa. So now we’ve got to cook and clean and fix things on our own boat, but it’s still a thrill to finally be back, and we've met other nice cruisers. Our first stop was Bequia, which has a wonderful waterfront with markets and shops, and incredibly steep hills to climb. We especially liked provisioning at Doris’ Fresh Foods, a small market in a private home, redolent of curry and other herbs and spices. Take a deep breath when you enter the door, and you’re immediately hungry. And take a look at the décor of the Whaleboner Bar – very apropos to its name.
