TS Harvey dumped a lot of wind and rain on SVG. The storm surge did a lot of damage to the waterfront in Port Elizabeth, Bequia

Unfortunately, more storms are brewing but it is that time of year.

Paul a portion of the sea walk had been damaged when we were there in April. You could still walk over it to Princess Margaret Beach but there was a slight detour . I fear that there has been further damage. From the sound of things, everyone on the waterfront is working hard to restore their property this morning.

Aww, Bequia is such a nice little island. Unfortunately, it IS that time of year.

Paul, Jack's Beach Bar has ben sold. Still a great hangout but they have moved the bar to the side, and no more free beach chairs if you drink or eat there. Previous owner took them with him. But you can rent chairs on the beach.

I like walking the beach and snorkeling .. The caves at the far end are great to take pictures. I know from the many places I visited over the years that it is hard to see changes. Visited a bar in Hong Kong called the Go Down. Go Down was Asiatic word slang for a places that sold goods to sailors. That is what I was told. Anyone, you had to go downstairs and the Bar was under the street. It was a dump but with a lot a rustic class. Hey the beer was cheap and cold. Use to go there when we were in Hong Kong. Then I didn't go back for a few years and when I did the places was a 5 star restaurant. SOMETIMES IT IS BETTER NOT TO LOSS THOSE MEMORIES.
