Yesterday our two daughters had left to return home. We were sad to have them leave, but rather than dwell on it, we decided to move. So, we spent a couple of hours getting cleared out of St. Lucia to move to Bequia which is an island in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. It was a beautiful evening with a full moon and we had a delightful sail down the windward (east) side of St. Vincent. We then turned around the southern part to get around Bequia to enter the main anchorage at Port Elizabeth around midnight. The trip took about 7 hours. You can view the GPS track below with Google Maps, or with Google Earth in 3D.

We parked pretty far out last night because there were a surprising number of boats in the anchorage. Well over 100 I’m guessing. I guess this is the happening place on New Year’s Eve! We heard there will be fireworks when we cleared in with customs.
Our best wishes to everyone – Happy New Year!
We are really looking forward to 2010 as we begin traveling to new destinations and new people. We hope you’ll keep following along on this blog and enjoy the sights we share with photos, GPS tracks, and with Google Earth. We hope to have a lot to share!
