Up at 6:00 up on deck with my coffee and rolls to watch another island come into view, the ships get into port at 7:30 watched as the first line is across and down for breakfast and and off to explore yet another island, off the ship at 8:00 get a tour set up for 9:00 the tour guy didn't get enough people for the trip so he put me with another driver, we headed off for a tour of the island, was a very fast paced tour only stopping a few places (the new tour guide was not a very good) the one I had first booked with talked about all the stops we would make the second ones just drove by them (turned him into the tourist board) Did make it around the island with a stop at the Caribelle Batik store, and a stop at the Brimestone Hill Fortress had some time to explore it while there we had a hard rain so took away some of the time to explore the rain was warm but hard to take pictures. Then back in the van with only one more quick stop at the Black Rocks then back to Basseterre and the port. Walked around the port getting a couple magnets and a few local beers, back to the ship at 3:00 today we leave at 6:00 so have to be back on board by 5:30. Had a late snack on the ship before watching it head out of port for our next and last port before getting back to San Juan. Dinner at 6:00 set at a table for 6 again all new people very nice dinner and good conversation, another show and roaming around the ship a few more beers and back to my cabin with a elephant to join the group great. Next stop St Martin
