Day 5 St Kitts

Today started out sunny and hot. Usual breakfast and trivia. Then, we headed onto the island of St Kits. This is the one island during the cruise that we have not visited before.

We started by walking through the shopping which is immediately off the ship. Very typical island stuff (t-shirts and various souvenirs) and lots of jewelry. Since we already got lots of jewelry and a couple watches, we weren't very interested.

Instead, we decided to go with one of the locals who was hawking island tours. He offered a 2 1/2 full island tour by somewhat air conditioned van. We were with two German couples from our ship and a Canadian couple from another ship. While not the best tour we have ever had, it was interesting.

One oddity was a couple trees filled with egrets. Don't know why so many congregated on just a couple trees. Didn't see egrets anywhere else on the island. I have attached a few photos of other highlights of the island.

After the tour, lunch, a little rest, afternoon trivia and off to dinner. Usual conversation at dinner about the island and what everyone did. No new news regarding bizarre stuff. Apparently, a guy named Haji Zarab Gul is the person who "kidnapped" John. Still don't know that whole story. John did tell a story about an Afghan wedding that lasted 8 days - 3 of which he attended.

Great evening entertainment tonight. And, now...off to bed for us.
