Here are my favourite photos from the trip.

I said at the start of this postcard that Bequia remains unspoilt. It's a beautiful place. But once every ten days or so a cruise liner berths in the harbour. I suppose it's great for the bars and restaurants but if it were like this every day would the villas and hotels be full?
So that's our postcard. It's probably nearlly identical to the one I posted last year. We had a wonderful break. Glorious weather, beautiful scenery, great accommodation, friendly people, early mornings and early nights, lots and lots of reading, loads of walks, swimming, snorkelling and total relaxation - perfect.
Here's what I read while away.All were enjoyable but the best by far for me was A Man Called Ove.
I mentioned that magical evening. Before I go, I'll leave you with a taste of what happened.
