We had a good motor sail to the island of Nevis – but it’s pronounced Neevis, not like our Hill. At 980m Nevis Peak is about Munro height. I was trying to get a photo of the Ben Nevis map (on towel) with the peak in the background. This island is administrated with next door St Kitts, and got independence from Britain in 1983. It was the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton (1757) so we went to see his house and museum, also Horatio Nelson Museum (he spent time here defending against American privateers) and an amazing hot spring by the old Bath Hotel. The main town of Charleston has attractive old Caribbean buildings and quite a good shop – the supply ship had just arrived. Next we made a trip inland to the Botanic Gardens. There are also many old sugar plantations.
