A glorious start to the day. Mild temperature and no sign of rain. We've decided to travel into the city on the shuttle and walk around on our own. The combination od the fine weather and the clean tidy streets made for a pleasant experience. There are numerous memorials and a pleasing variety of architectural styles. I'm no expert but it appears that the 'Art Nouveau' period has had a huge influence.
We walked for about three hours and while heading back to the pick-up point we observed a collision between a bus and a small car. The car was trying to cut in front of the bus which had just started to move. It appears that a small child on the bus may have been injured in the sudden stop. There were some raised voices, not least the mother of the child. There were plenty of witnesses so we decided to move on.
Returned to the ship without incident and had lunch on Deck 15.
Watched some TV and started the process of packing. We've been asked to leave our luggage outside our rooms before going to dinner. A lot of the clothing hasn't been used. No trouble accommodating the few purchases we've made.
Up to Deck 15 for our last dinner aboard. What we're wearing now will carry us through to Canterbury tomorrow evening.
Will post this tonight, being the last from aboard the Caribbean Princess. Clocks go back an hour tonight. Tomorrow we'll be travelling most of the day.
Until next time. Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony
