We had a later breakfast and then took the Tender to the beach. It was another gorgeous day, although thankfully, slightly cooler than yesterday – only 26 degrees!
The beach was your typical ‘Robinson Crusoe’ type, sand, sand, palm-trees and more sand. Perfect!!!
We seemed to be one of the first to arrive, so we therefore managed to get the pick of the shady-spots and after being lent a rake from a local, created a nice area between two trees for the four of us – perfect..just enough sun and shade! We chilled out there as the island began to fill-up and before long, lunch was waiting!
The Ship’s catering team had laid on an impressive spread – salads…burgers…ribs…hot-dogs…tea…coffee…Coke…fruit juices…rum-punch as well as bread-and-butter pudding…chocolate cake and lots more desserts.
We finished our lunch, chilled-out for half-an-hour or so, then caught the Tender back to the ship admiring the blue-ness of the water along the way.
We laid out on deck in the shade for an hour-or-so reading waiting for the ship to sail at 4pm. The main excursion from the Island was late back, so we didn’t get away until 4.30.
Dinner in the restaurant again tonight. It was a pirate theme and a lot of the guests and ALL the staff dressed-up accordingly – our waiter spent the evening with a cutlass through him!!! It was another good meal – we all had steak. After the meal, we resisted the temptation to watch the crab-race at 10pm as we were all quite tired.
The Ship is now heading for the islands of St Vincent and Bequia and we dock at St Vincent by 8am tomorrow.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
