Today, Robert took me on a tour of the Island. We went to see the "abandoned" US Naval base. It's incredible to think that all these buildings were formerly occcupied by the US Navy. Now, half of the buildings are un-used.
We went on to see St-David's Lighthouse. The view from there is beautiful.
Then, we went back to St-Georges for the "dunking session". In the 18th & 19th century, people who were found guilty of some crime were forced to sit on a chair that was then "dunked" into the sea.
This time, of course, it was only actors who've done that. But the actress was very persuasive and she didn't even show that the water was cold.
I even got to participate !!!!
Then, in the evening, we went to see the boat parade in Hamilton. It's a kind of "défilé" of boats that are especially lit for Christmas.
It was great to see. I didn't even know that you could light boats like that....
After the parade, we went to the Beckle's house. That's where I'll stay next week.
