18 December- Crew R&R Part 2
Mon 20 Dec 2010 00:10
With Ben away with friends and the crew of another ARC boat for the past few days, the remaining crew of Moulin Rouge continued to the next part of their R&R (i.e. holiday in Saint Lucia).
A private boat trip with snorkeling at 3 different locations along the western coast of the island, with visits into Marigot Bay, Castries, Anse La Raye, Canaries, Anse Chastanet, Soufriere and Jalousie (between the Pitons). An excellent time was had by all. Andy's diving (belly flops) were generally given a 1 out of 10 whereas the scenery and the boat crew were voted 10 out of 10. We were shown many sites which have been used as film sets including Dr Doolittle and Pirates of the Caribbean.
Tonight is the ARC prizegiving ceremony which basically marks the end of the event ... after that the crew all start to make their homeward journeys over the next week or so. Colin is offering the rest of the crew the use of the Mr Grumpy T-shirt as he does not want a repeat of his outward flight!
