We decided that our day in Castries would be a rest day.
Rather than running the gauntlet of taxi drivers or going to a beach we stayed at the Pointe Seraphine duty free area and watched the world go by around us.
Castries, St Lucia Wednesday 31st October
As Azura slowly came into the harbour at Castries an early morning plane made so much noise as it landed that I was again awake early.
The ship eventually docked at the Pointe Seraphine cruise terminal.
The Oriental restaurant was not busy and we were seated on a table for eight. The downside was that we had to wait until more passengers joined us before we could order.
We had decided not to go to any of the beaches or even to go into Castries. Our plan was to have the day as a rest day. Azura was docked at Pointe Seraphine and we just walked from the ship into the duty-free shopping area.
We did some window shopping as we walked to the open area before the dock for the passenger ferry to Castries. There was now an extra bar there since our last visit. This bar was for a local micro-brewery called Antilla.
This was the bar where we stopped for a a drink.
We ordered some of their beer and walked around to the back of the bar. There we could watch the activity across the harbour.
The free wi-fi was fast and we caught up on our emails while we enjoyed the beer.
