Off Island Adventure
ST. VINCENT & BEQUIA, B.W.I.
By Olasee Davis
As one of the co-founders of the St. Croix Hiking Association, established in 1998, one of my goals was to visit other Caribbean islands. Well, a group of 32 members just returned from our annual "Off-Island Trip" to St. Vincent and Bequia in the Grenadines, where we hiked and visited many natural, cultural, agricultural, and historical sites. St. Vincent and the Grenadines are part of the Windward Islands. Their closest neighbors are: In the north St. Lucia (24 miles away); to the south Grenada (75 miles away); In the east Barbados (100 miles away).
Can It Get Any Better?
by Ivan Butcher II
Although each trip and island has its own special appeal, it seems like each year the trips get better and better.
The thing was... l got home from St. Vincent about 2 pm from the airport, so I decided to take a nap for a couple of hours and then head out to Cramer's Park for a party. It never happened. I woke up the next day at 6 am. I slept 17 hours straight through the night into the next morning. Can it get any better?
