Lovely little place where Columbus stopped for water on his voyages. Went for a walk and found a bar with wifi. When we got back to the ship we had a very late lunch at about 2.15.

They are also booked to be in Richmond this September for the UCI world cycling event. We were all ready to get some sleep having survived the long travel ...
