Caribbean Islands
Lower Bay, Bequia - passing storms

Passing storms cause waves to surge up Lower Bay beach on the island of Bequia, St Vincent and the Grenadines

It was a grey afternoon here on Bequia and the storm clouds were gathering, lying low across the island hills and from up on high you can watch the storms heading our way across the seas.

One of the most beautiful beaches on the island, Lower Bay, was being hit by storm surges, causing the waves to run right up the beach causing all sunbathers and swimmers to leave and go home. Perfect! I had the beach to myself.

The fallen tree immediately caught my eye and using this as a lead in waited for the surges to run up and encompass me.

A lone yachtsman was waiting out the passing storm until he too took off for a run down the islands, leaving me with the entire bay, beach and seafront to myself. Once the rain came, I packed up the camera and dived in for a swim. Even on a grey cloudy day the bay was wonderful.
