St. Vincent is the most northerly and largest Island that make up this country, but Bequia is the northern island in the Grenadines group. We entered St. Vincent and the Grenadines from the south, at Union Island. This was the Island our son-in-law, Dan, was based on for a time flying a piper-arrow. Our daughter Brigitte joined him for a short stay. Neither were impressed with the Island, but it was summer at the time and they had no air-conditioning in the house. Also the mosquitoes and “no-see-ums” were so bad that they were eaten alive. For us, well we had a completely different experience. For a start it is the winter months where temperatures are perfect. You always have a lovely breeze out on the water, so sleeping at night is not a problem, and as for the bugs, well they are not around yet !!!
