    Crew Wechsel in Castries

    February 27, 2020 in Saint Lucia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Bella und Matze reisen am Morgen von Saint Lucia ab und Regina's Eltern kommen am Abend hier an. Nach der Verabschiedung von Bella und Matze laufen wir zum Strand von Castries. Hier waren wir am Vortag schonmal und haben einen Strandtag verbracht. Gestern zeigte uns der einheimische Jambo, auf sehr sympathische Art, wie aus Palmenwedeln, Hüte, Schalen und Lampenschirme geflochen werden. Uns gefiel das so gut, dass wir eine Obstschale kauften. Als wir Bella und Matze trafen waren sie ebenfalls von der Handwerkskunst begeistert und ließen sich ebenfalls von Jambo eine Obstschale flechten. Heute kommen Regina's Eltern hier an und wir verbringen den Tag am Strand und laufen zum Leuchtturm, von wo man einen herrlichen Blick auf den Hafen und die Küste hat.Read more

    February 21, 2013 in Saint Lucia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Today is Thursday 21st February and today we dock at our first Caribbean island the island of St Lucia.
    The last time we were here was two years ago and I'm afraid the overall impression of the town we landed at, the name of which escapes me, was not a good one it appeared to be a mixture of the worst places in Wigan and Bradford, but with sun.....
    We were twice warned about the dangers of walking in certain areas, once by the police and once by a local barber.
    It sort of ruined all the brochure pictures and romantic island blurb....Lol
    Anyway, yesterday was nice the weather was once again fantastic, and I did another 4 hour marathon sunbathing session with Sheila, John and Jennifer, but with a slight difference, they were in the sunshine and I was in the shade and even in the shade with the ship doing about 17 knots it was still hot hot hot.
    In the afternoon we bombed out of the music quiz only finishing third and there's a new champion team so now we're gunning for two teams...Lol.
    In the evening we first of all watched the duo, who were once again fantastic, we asked Kandy to sing "Babooshka" by Kate Bush which she did brilliantly well.
    Then later we went to the show which was great we first of all had the classical pianist do three numbers, then Gary Ryan the Neil Diamond tribute act did about four numbers and finally Mr Jimmy James finished the show of with another fantastic set, not only is he still a cracking singer who can belt them out with the best of them but he can still do the moves on stage which for a 73 year old is amazing........
