St. Lucia

Wednesday, March 22, 2023

Our Pinnacle Grill dinner was excellent. Chuck had the crab cakes and ribeye steak. I had the candied bacon and seared scallops. We splurged and shared the Beecher’s lobster mac and cheese. Waiter recommended the chocolate soufflé and Chuck got it. I stuck with the key lime pie.

After that huge meal, we were in no shape for dancing and we had seen the show so we opted to listen to the wind and waves from the balcony. It was a good evening.

We’ve been to St. Lucia once before and took an island tour. Today we opted to just walk around the port area. Chuck did buy a nice shirt.

The rest of the afternoon was spent relaxing on the Sea View deck.

I did receive an email about our next cruise. The itinerary has changed. Portland Maine is replacing Bar Harbor. A sea day is replacing Newport, Rhode Island. We will have a longer port time in Boston. Just have to go with the flow.

We left the port at 4:30 and slowly cruised by the Pitons.

Next thing you know, it’s time for dinner again.
