3rd Sea Day

Feb 24, 2014

Ok here it is the third sea day, and I know I haven't posted anything since the 20th, so I will try to catch y'all up on all the happenings.  I know there are people that find sea days boring, I am not one of them.  It has been pretty much non stop for the last 2 1/2 days.  So I will start where I left off with Trinidad.

Feb, 21

Trinidad & Tobago;  We never saw Tobago, it is too far away,

but we took a tour in Trinidad, it was nice, we went to Mount St. Benedict's Monastery, our tour began with a drive past the Red House, the seat of Parliament, and the Magnificent Seven, a group of extravagant and eccentrically designed mansions.  Only trouble was they were all being refurbished, so all we really say was scaffolding and fences, oh well so it goes.  After going up a VERY NERROW mountain road we made it to the top of the mountain and arrived at the Monastery, and the Pax Guest house, where they fed us some wonderful cake and juice and tea, THAT was very nice.  Then it was down the mountain, to the Royal Botanic Gardens, where we saw some interesting plants and trees, but really didn't have the opportunity to explore this very much.

The bad news was that they rushed us to the busses, so we didn't get to see the dancers on the pier and when we got back they were gone.  So no pictures of "Carnival" dancers here.
