Where is Lulu???? - Bequia

Bequia is a small island that is a part of the Grenadines. It is very mountainous and green with vegetation. In town there are many stands selling vegetables, art, and jewelry. As soon as we arrived we were in search of an ice cream shop and found one called the Gingerbread Café. It has very good ice cream there are lots of flavors to choose from including a dairy free sorbet for Jack!

Here is Lulu hanging out at the ice cream shop

There are a lot of reefs to snorkel. These reefs have lots of animals like trunkfish, angel fish, lobster, trumpet fish, squirrel fish, box fish, and eels.

The boys have recently gotten more into fishing and are going out in the dingy every afternoon to go fishing. At first, they didn’t catch anything but then one afternoon they caught an Amberjack! It was 7 pounds. Later, some of the local fishermen came around and sold us a lobster and also helped us filet the fish.

Just seconds before dropping the fish on its head

We got a little help from the local fisherman

Where is Lulu??? - The Tobago Cays

We just started our second cruising season and I want to keep everyone more updated while we visit more islands. But I can’t do it alone, so I decided to bring my blog mascot, Lulu the Llama!

The plan is for Lulu to keep you updated on our journey as we go through the Caribbean with a “Where is Lulu?” post. Each time we get to another island Lulu will take a picture and post a little information on where we are cruising. I will still write longer posts about our adventures but wanted to give you a little glimpse into our current location.

Where is Lulu??? - The Tobago Cays

You can see the reef in the distance. The water is so clear and beautiful!

We are the Tobago Cays in the Grenadines. The Grenadines are part of the country of St. Vincent. The Tobago Cays are a protected family of islands and home to a turtle sanctuary. There is a large reef that surround the Tobago Cays and there are tons and tons of turtles here. Just driving to the beach today in our dinghy I saw three turtles pop their heads out of the water. In the Tobago Cays there are white sanded beaches, turtles, and colorful reefs that are alive with many fish.    

The Tobago Cays are so small they don't even show up on the map!
