Day 487 - Scarborough, Tobago

Today was a first for me! I’ve never been here before! I thought we were going to be in Port of Spain, but I was wrong. Which is most unfortunate, as I had made arrangements to purchase organic produce from one of the locals! I called her this morning only to find out that we were 6 hours by ferry away from each other! Thankfully she was able to use the produce herself, so it wasn’t going to waste!

M&D2 & I enjoyed a lengthy sleep. We met around noon & went out. We found a local market & bought a few coconuts. I was happy to get meat out of the coconut & started making bacon as soon as I was back onboard!

We looked for soil & planting trays. No luck on the trays, but success in finding soil! We didn’t find too much around town as far as sight-seeing went, but we enjoyed looking in the little shops at souvenir clothes & such. Of course, we walked down the waterfront to a little patch of dark sand beach. M&D2 were pretty excited to put their feet in the warm waters of the Caribbean! We picked a few shells & stones & made our way back to the ship.

In the afternoon, we met in Horizon Court & went through the tour sheets & selected our activities for the next 2 weeks. They are very excited to snorkel & beach it whenever they can! I’m so excited for them to experience life onboard!

We’ve applied for a snorkeling tour tomorrow & Jaco is going to come with us! Yay! I know it will be a challenge for him to come ashore with us, so I’m happy that we can squeeze this in right off the bat!


Just in time for a downpour!
Almost the best picture I've ever taken!
