Rolling up the sidewalks in St. Kitts

The marina in St. Kitts is also at the cruise ship port. Walking off the cruise ship dock (that also contains customs, immigration, and the port office) you are surrounded by duty free liquor, jewelry, and tobacco shops. Of course if you realize that you are in a cruise ship port you only shop the stores when no ships are in and start your bidding at 50% of the advertised price.


What made St. Kitts special is that the moment that the cruise ships depart all the doors to the stores slam shut. Andy and I tried to go out to dinner in Basseterre. There were only two restaurants open. The rest of the island is different. Everything is more normal. It is quite clear what the source of income is in Basseterre.


Fair winds and following seas.
