Arriving in Antigua

We arrived at the harbour of St John's just as the sun was rising. A pilot boat shepherded us in and the captain slowly edged us into our dock for the day.
Look closely at picture two and our ship fills the whole left hand side, with the captain's lookout about halfway up the photo.
We totally tower above the town, but just along side us is a much bigger German cruise ship that is covered with balconies. They won't be getting too much sun today.
Fortunately, all of this metal hasn't frightened off the frigate birds who circle the ship at deck 13 level.
Right on time the steel band set up and start playing just as the first passengers start to disembark.
We are a bit more laid back and are going for breakfast before starting our day.
