Nevis, February 15-16, 2001

Downtown CharlestownNevis, which is governmentally part of St. Kitts, is only a few miles away.  Basseterre and Charlestown (Nevis) are only 12 miles apart, but are hugely distant in touch and feel.  Charlestown is clean and very friendly.  Lots of nice art galleries and a quaint old feel.  However, don't every hire their road construction crew to pave anything for you unless you like that "Magic fingers" feel as you drive. 

Mt. Nevis & Pinney BeachThe anchorage near Charlestown (Pinney Beach) is absolutely outstanding.  You look out at a palm tree lined sandy beach with Mt. Nevis rising in the background.  WOW!  What a view, especially after Basseterre!
