June 30 and July 1, 2017
First of all, last night’s event and sunset.
The QUILT raffle was held last night, and over $6000 was raised for the crew welfare fund! I didn’t win the quilt.. But am happy to be part of it. There will be a book about the project and I will purchase that. There was also a live auction of several other quilts, ships flag, navigation charts, the ability to be cruise director for a day, etc.
St. George’s is a UNESCO world heritage site and the oldest surviving English New World town. It is just 21 square miles (20 miles by 2 miles) and has a population of just 60,000. It is very British and it is usual to see men in jackets and ties with Bermuda shorts and knee socks.
We took a long walk through town and went to Tobacco Bay and Fort St. Catherine. The fort is known as “the jewel of the East”. It was constructed beginning in 1614! The views were terrific too.
Saturday we had a mission- sea glass. Took a long walk and encountered several bad direction givers on our way to Buildings Bay. Finally one nice guy gave us a ride. Tiny secluded beach but what a treasure trove of glass! And sea creatures on the rocks. Had a nice swim before walking back.
