Underwater pictures of St Vincent and The Grenadines marine wild life.
Some of these photos are a bit out of focus. This was the first time I used my new underwater housing and I hadn't quite got used to it.
There are two infinity pools (one slightly above and behind the other) on the edge of the resort overlooking the sea.
Another view from the pool side
This is the view over the left of the lower infinity pool. The structure on the left is the veranda from the pool side bar.
View from Inside a Garden Villa
This is a view from the bedroom of our villa through the folding doors to the lounge and another set of folding doors to the outside.
Our Plunge Pool
All of the garden villas have a plunge pool, sunbeds and a view onto the surrounding countryside. It was absolutely idyllic.
Buccament Bay resort is nestled in a green valley right on the edge of Buccament Bay Village.
The surrounding countryside is alive with all kinds of tropical fauna and flora. St Vincent is certainly a very fertile island.
It rained a couple of times while we were in Bucc Bay. But the rain was warm and short lived. A cloudy sky over the hills could give the place a moody atmosphere.
There were lots of these little guys around. They seemed almost as curious about us as we were about them.
This little fella was about two inches (5cm) from one side to the other. It was skittering down one side of the pathway when we were walking the other way.
It naturally got frightened when I went near it to take a picture and disappeared into some pebbles. I was amazed that it didn't move when I uncovered it again and I could get this picture.
Buccament Bay is west facing so we were treated to a beautiful sunset most nights.
The weather around St Vincent can look pretty dramatic even when it's calm
This is Elephant Rock. Actually it looks more like an elephant from the shore.
This rock was used in one of the scenes of Pirates of the Caribbean - The Curse of the Black Pearl. The film was partly shot on location at St Vincent.
A Fake Cave
Using the magic of Hollywood a cover slung from this rock to the cliff face created the cave where the treasure was hidden in Pirates of the Caribbean - The Curse of The Black Pearl.
Another sunset as seen from the boat during the sunset cruise.
One of the towns along the coast of St Vincent. The coast line is dotted with towns and villages nestled in green valleys.
Leaving Buccament Bay
This photo was taken by the staff just as we were leaving. Everybody at the resort was just brilliant.
Port Royal Jetty
This jetty was built for the film 'Pirates of the Caribbean - Curse of the Black Pearl'. It was originally much bigger than this but a large portion was destroyed by a hurricane. This is the jetty that Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) landed at at the beginning of the film.
The rock on the far right of this picture next to the cliff is Elephant Rock. Jack Sparrow took his hat off to three skeletons of pirates that were hung beneath this rock.
Port Royal Set
This is one of the buildings that was created for the film Pirates of the Caribbean - Curse of the Black Pearl. It's really just an empty shell but it looks impressive.
Some fake cannons that were left at the film set.
St Vincent has its own dormant volcano on the north side of the island. This is about the closest we came to it on our way to Dark View Falls
Dark View Falls
The water in this waterfall is not as cold as it looks. There's apparently another even more impressive fall higher up the hillside but it was raining the day we went and the pathway is treacherous so we didn't get to see it.
Buccament Bay Resort
This is a view of the Resort from the road across the bay.
