Half a Day Off

02 November 2017 | St Kitts
It is a bit full on at the moment. Hot, dirty, buggy, just tough. Anyway we took a part day off after using the cool of the morning and did a tour of the island.

The photo is looking north from Brimstone Hill towards St Eustatius and, further away, Saba.
