When one visits this island, one would think that this is a growing, industrious island. Factory buildings that many of the island's workers head to every morning. Even though this island is industrious, it is, in its own sense, an industrious paradise. This island not only benefits from industrious work and trading, but its ability to attract tourist.
Weather- The weather on the island was nice and beautiful. It was hot, yet a nice Caribbean breeze would blow to cool you off. The sun was high and burning brightly as ever. With the sun's rays caressing the Caribbean Sea.
Land- My wife and I decided to walk from the port that our cruise ship stopped to the main city. It was about a four mile walk. If you plan to do this walk, please make sure that you hydrate. My wife easily got tired by the second mile before she was asking for something cool to drink. While walking to the city, I noticed that this island was truly secluded. As far as the eye could see, you could only see water and nothing more. I felt like I was isolated. The city is busy we different kinds of inhabitants of the island- I saw business people, workers, people whole looked ghetto, poor people, and many more. All of these people that clashed together to form the identity of this island's personality.
It was close to Christmas, and it was weird to see palm trees decorated with Christmas lights. Being in the Christmas mood we decided to buy my father-in-law a present. We went into a store to buy him a Hawaii-like, but Caribbean-style shirt. The workers of the store were very polite and nice.
Saint Mary's Episcopal Church- This was the best part of the trip and is worth going. To visit this church is free. If you want to donate money, it is only one dollar to donate- I did donate to the church. We had a very kind and helpful tour guide; he has served this church since he was nine-years old. This church was very old-fashion tell how this church was built. In fact, my tour guide told me that everything in the church has been kept since the church was built. Outside of the church, it was paradise in a serious sense. There would be exotic plants and birds surrounding the church, yet graves lay dormant outside. These graves would remind me how long this church has been in service of this island nation. Some of the graves have been here since the early 1900s. I shall never forget this experience of this trip.
While returning to the ship, we were attacked by every taxi cab driver telling us they could show us the entire island for around $40 per person. I rolled my eyes and said no thanks. If you can, try to blend with the people of the island because they don't stop trying to sale you these overpriced tours until you say no for the nine-billionth time.
In the end, this island was gorgeous, yet one can tell that this island is growing everyday. I hope to visit this island one day again.
