Friday Day 6 Nevis: Charlestown and the beach

Up early with the roosters and a breakfast of fresh picked oranges from Mala’s tree. They are green on the outside but nice and sweet inside.

Off we go to explore Charlestown this morning. We started with the ruins of Fort Charles and then visited the Lord Horatio Museum in the old Bath Hotel (now the Ministry of Tourism for Nevis). Very interesting displays of Nevetian history including the once booming sugar industry and the slave trade that went with it.

After that we walked the streets of Charlestown, did a bit of souvenir shopping, enjoyed people watching, stocked up on a few groceries, mailed some post cards and headed for the beach.

Today’s beach destination… Lover’s Beach on the north shore. This is the beach we flew over when we landed coming into Nevis. We found the path and walked in (3 minutes)… And Wow! Totally secluded, totally private (not another soul in sight) and totally magnificent. This would be my favourite beach of all seven that we visited. We enjoyed rum punch, played in the surf, watch planes fly into the airport and walked arm in arm promising to return here someday.

Home again for afternoon cocktails and watched the sun go down from our deck.

Then we got dressed for dinner and walked down to Yachtman Grill for another great meal of Mahi mahi ceviche and escargots appetizers before grilled scallops and Mahi mahi (my fourth time for that on the island…all excellent).

Another end to another perfect day.
