Got to watch the ship dock while we ate breakfast on the lido - back deck behind the Coconut Grove. It was fun to see the seagulls dive towards the decks trying to get food.
Got off the ship and went on a "walking" tour of the city. We had found out aobut it through CC and were so glad we did. Before we could start though, we had to go though the prongs of people trying ot sell you bracelets to Atlantis and tours.
Went through the historic buildings, to Queens staircase and the fort. Walked through town and then went to the straw market. One word to the wise - tell them you are just looking first then you will come back to buy. Also - we ended up bargaining and got most things for about 60% of the original asking price. Got a great drum for our son, beautiful purses and some bracelets. Neither of us are big seafood eaters so we didn't go each conch - but now I wish we had. We went back to the ship to drop off our shopping bags, got lunch on lido and then headed back into the city.
Met some great people who live on the Island. Either black or white - everyone was fantastic to us. Found an absolutely fantastic jewelery and coin store off the main path - owned by a local family - not a chain. Spoke with the owner for about 45 min. and learned a lot about the island. Stores and vendors pretty much only have American dollars so we had to go to the bank to find local money. If you like to have money from other countries, make sure you go to the Royal Canadian Bank on the main street. They gave us the square 15 cent coins as well as 1/2 dollar bills.
All in all a great place to visit and learn about another people and culture.
