As the wind is predicted to lighten, we thought we’d come out to the open wilds behind the “Horseshoe Reef”.
There is very little land cover and only the reef awash (much like places in the South Pacific) keeps the open ocean swell from
getting to us!

There are about 40 boats moored here; quite tight. A bit bouncy, very pretty. We’ll keep you posted.

A bit of a blustery day, but only a 2 hour trip from Bequia to Mustique.
The “R&F”…Rich and Famous are in the house. We cannot take cameras ashore or go outside of a 500 meter by 200 meter zone for
visitors. One of the hotels,”Cotton House” is shut to visitors as well. I’m sure we’ll hear the rumors of whose “in the house” at Basil’s Bay Bar late this
afternoon! Mick Jagger and David Bowie have two of the 90 homes here. Moorings are free, park fee is 75.00 USD for boats under 70 feet for three days.
We have 19 sailboats and two “Mega Yachts” here as well.
