We made our way along the Belmont Walkway, to the end, to Mac's. It was H-O-T today. We meandered up the stairs, got a table, ordered some rum punch and conch fritters then the pièce de résistance - the lobster pizza. For those of you have not had the pleasure of Mac's pizza, it is quite a treat. I am always very glad that we get there during lobster season - it would be a disappointing trip for us otherwise. Don't get me wrong, they do serve other delicious things, but we came all this way for the pizza, and it did not disappoint.
We ordered a large lobster pizza with garlic. The pizza is quite simple - crust, a savoury tomato sauce, lobster, cheese and slivers of garlic. Thankfully clearer heads prevailed or there may have not been pictures of this stellar event. Now, if you are an aficionado of a meat lover's style pizza, you may not find the bold flavours you are looking for here. This pizza is all about one thing - the lobster. I don't want any other toppings to distract me from that. I would even consider skipping the garlic, if it didn't add such pungent goodness. Each mouth watering bite is a tantalizing balance of crust, cheese, tomato, garlic and lobster. For those who found the ambient heat not enough, there was a bottle of Erika's hot sauce on the table. As enjoyable as it was having lunch with my husband and friends, one bite of the pizza took me to a tasty island of solitude as I enjoyed my bounty. Yes, it was worth the detour to come here for this meal.

After stocking up, giving a couple of EC's to 'The Character', we took the dinghy back, unpacked our stuff and enjoyed a refreshing swim off the back of the boat. The rest of the afternoon was spent very leisurely - reading, snoozing and sipping Ti Punch. We had all been to Bequia a couple of times before, so decided to skip a sight seeing tour of the island. The evening culminated in some tasty BBQ turkey burgers (courtesy of our skipper - well done!) on our little charcoal barbecue. A nice, quiet evening, watching the boats beside us swing in unison.
