This was not a long stop so we didn't have time to go to Nevis like we did the last time we were here. Instead we walked into the cruise terminal. D left M trying to find some free internet while he went to look around town. The internet hunt was unsuccessful and D reported back that the town was closed.
D took a few pictures of the town and purchased some snacks at a supermarket that happened to be open - he gave the Planters Peanuts a miss at 6 quid for a small drum! We were back on board in time for lunch.
We had been invited to a sail away party on the bridge wing to celebrate our impending platinum membership of the Columbus Club. There were 19 or so of us there plus Marco, Olga, Georgia and Lee the Cruise Director. As we sailed away we were on the port wing where it was very windy and started to rain. The Captain suggested we move to the starboard wing which was much more sheltered. It was very interesting being on the bridge when
leaving port. We were given drinks and canapes as we left and
then the photographer took a group photo.
After dinner the show was "Out of Africa" which we had seen before so we gave it a miss and went to get a couple of drinks to take down to the cabin. We decided to go to the Columbus Bar on the way down. As we rounded the corner into the bar M aquaplaned on some wet sludge that was all over the floor. She went down hard on her backside and put both hands out to the side to break her fall. This resulted in very sore palms and 6 or 7 smashed and broken nails. After helping her up Viktor and Olina prepared the drinks and we left - leaving them to continue with the clean up.
