Barbados III

Our third day in Barbados, and for some the end of the cruise as they fly back to, mostly, UK this afternoon. More passengers were joining for the 'second leg' so best bet was to get away from all that. I decided on an early turn around the Dockyard to survey some of the classic and less likely contenders at alongside berths, anchor and underway.
