The black & white image is a detail (the elevation screw) of the old cannons that watch over the harbor.
Our excursion van picks us up for our trip to the island's interior for some hiking to a well known waterfall and a natural rock maze. On our way there I snapped these images from our moving van as we passed by many old buildings some abandoned by the locals,
with many being used despite their condition like this little store.
Another 45 minutes of driving and we again find paradise and the trail head to the falls. After the long hike down to the falls I was glad I wasn't carrying a tripod, but of course, I needed one with the loss of light being so deep into the rain forest.

After all the hiking we were ready to get back home--to the ship--but a local steel drum band, in colorful make-up was irresistible and willing to be photographed, after I tipped them!

Back on the ship, after a long day, we check on the drink of the day at one of the bars at the stern and get some more cool images during sail away…
Looking down I see the nice lights on the pier as the security guard goes home and Kathi looks up and sees a family of cloud monsters, with their little dog, spewing fire in the sky! (She has a really good imagination...) What a great trip!
As usual, should you have questions don't hesitate to ask.
