Wednesday, December 28, 2011 – Castries, St. Lucia – Mostly Sunny – 85F

Bridgetown, Barbados to St. Lucia: 164 Nautical Miles

It’s a beautiful day in St. Lucia.  We are tendering into the town today – apparently, the QM2 is too long to dock at the town’s terminals.

Castries Shopping Area

It was hot in the city today so we took shelter in a new shopping complex near the pier.  We found out that the Science Museum in the complex had WiFi and we were able to get the password (for the cost of two Coke Zeros).  The WiFi signal was very strong so, in addition, to catching up on e-mails, we also used SKYPE on my phone for the first time.  It worked fine – just like a cell call.  A new way to communicate.  We stayed in the museum for over an hour and took advantage of the air conditioning and WiFi.

After dinner, we attended “Singers In Concert” – a concert given by the Cunard Singers accompanied by both orchestras, the string quartet, and the harpist.  It may have been the best show we have ever seen on a ship.
