Today was the official opening ceremony and we all paraded with our various countries' flags, lots of racket with drummers and brass band out doing each other on the dock.
We waved our Union Jack from home which was much bigger than the official one!
There were about 20 countries represented, lots of noise. The head of Tourism from St Lucia said the St Lucians would be looking across the sea in anticipation of seeing the first boat on the horizon in December, made you feel quite choked!
Final preparations, food shopping and cooking. Making lots of new best friends
7 Days to take off.
