Wednesday 30th January, St Georges, Grenada

Kingstown, the bay of the old town.  Quite, quite lovely.
We arrive in Kingstown at about 1 o'clock.  Peter and I were looking after some domestics, in as much we were selling watercolour painting sets, then there was lunch, and then we got off the ship. We knew we were gonna be in port until 10pm, so we had plenty of time.

First things first though.  The Beach!  The taxi service here is brilliant, they agree to take you to wherever, and back, at a price.  In our case we wanted a little more than an hour on the beach, so the taxi driver took us to the wonderful white sands in the picture below.  Then came back for us at the specified time.  Thing is, you don't pay them until they've collected you, so you know you won't be stranded. 

The beach was excellent, as you can see from the picture below, we spent a little time in the water testing the snorkels and goggles again. 
A wonderful afternoon on the beach.  To the left, you can see the P&O ship Azura, in front of it is our little Marco Polo, looking like a lifeboat.
Then the taxi driver picked us up and took us to the Bar Grill in the old town, a place Peter remembered had wi-fi.  The views from there are wonderful, it's cheap, the food looks brilliant, and we spent a happy hour or so there.   

Then it was back to the ship for the evening meal, and more importantly, the school disco.  Everyone was asked to dress up in school uniform. The passengers that did dress up were cheered and clapped as they appeared, some of them had made a fantastic effort, proving they didn't take life to seriously as they joined in the dancing and mucking about on the back deck.  A really good night. 

Tomorrow is Kingstown, St Vincent, and we're in for a bit of a treat, courtesy of the hard work of the excursions team.  I can't wait.
