So nice to see this stories. Thank you! They remind me of my mom’s own journey to and life on Bequia. Love, Tom O’Handley (Caroline’s son.)

We’re loving them – and best of all they just keep coming!

I visited Bequia in the summers of 1973 and 1974, working with the Port Elizabeth and Paget Farm teachers on the island. I fell in love with the island and it’s people. Their passion for life and the love of Bequia was in every person’s soul. I fondly remember so many of the people who were kind to me, (and I am certain many of whom are no longer with us): Fr. Charles Adams, Pastor of the Anglican Church; Mrs :Lewis, the cook at the rectory; Simon and Mac McGlynn, Clive Frank – who I know was killed in an airplane accident; Eloise Simmons, teacher at the new Anglican High School; Richie, a young boy with curly blond hair who visited me every day – and who I almost met a number of years ago in a cruise in St Thomas where he crewed on a St. Vincent boat; the gentleman who built my sail boat with passion and love – I still have it on display in my home; and so many others whose names escape me after all these years.

I would love to return to the island once more.
