Union Island, Grenadines

Overnight (and for much of the morning) we headed for Union Island - Grenadines arriving at Noon. We avoided the rush to get off the ship by spending time soaking-up the sun and then having lunch on-board.

The Royal Clipper

We then jumped on the Tender (only a short wait) and headed for the shore. The beach area wasn't particularly large, but it was a good spot to chill-out for an hour-or-so - the sand was beautiful but the mobile phone reception was crap - Well, you can't have everything!!! :)

About 3pm, we caught the Tender back to the Ship and spent a short while in the bar drinking. Ann and Karen tried out the gym whilst I exercised my typing skills. :)

I then decided to have a short snooze...which turned out to be much longer than I thought - Ann woke me up at 6.15!!!! I took me ages to 'come-to', but after a quick shower I was ready for more drinking and eating. We decided to meet Ralph and Karen in the Tropical Bar, and then eat slightly later. The Restaurant was busier tonight and it was trickier getting a table just for four (but we found one!). The food was great again tonight. I had the stuffed turkey whilst Ann opted for the steak and chips again.

After the meal, we went our separate ways - Ralph and Karen went back to their room, whilst we went to The Piano Lounge and caught up with various bits and pieces on our iPods.

10.15. Time for bed...

The Ship is sailing for tomorrow's destination - Grenada.
