This morning, we were in St. John's, Antigua, and there was the Explorer Of The Seas again! I got off the ship, and walked into the town center right at the dock - it was a bit shabby, and sported lots of duty free shops, pretty much all watches, jewelry and liquor, nothing I was really interested in. Ah, but there was something I was interested in: Free Internet. I stopped at a small bar/cafe called "Cheers" and logged onto their free internet, and bought one of their featured drinks - The Antiguan Smile. That's rum, coconut rum, pineapple juice and grenadine. Quite yummy. I used the internet until it stopped working (some guests that happened by that I'd met previously joked that I'd "used it up"), so we went across the street to The Beehive, and their internet worked, but was very slow. I eventually had my fill of it, and headed back to the ship, where I played my usual evening set at Windows Cafe, playing "Walk Don't Run" again, and again getting a great audience reaction. Just before I began my set, I got treated to the amazing sight of the massive Explorer, silhouetted against the sunset, and all lit up, backing out of its berth and turning around slowly and majestically. As I began playing, it sailed off, and we soon followed. On to our next destination!
Tomorrow: St. Bart
