Oh, what a night… the Buccoo Steel Band Orchestra are ringing out Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and The Eagles, and the place is jumpin’.
This is Sunday School Tobago style and I have come to worship.
Sunday School is a Tobagonian institution and a crowd are sat watching the steel band.
Up front the locals are starting to swell the bar while an old dude in trilby hat, flowery shirt, flares and Cuban heels is throwing shapes.
With his younger Seventysomething girlfriend.
I’m tentatively moving my hips, my initial reticence helped by a rum punch which the barman forgot to add any fruit juice to.
And the exhortations of my hosts Marsha and Phil from the Tobago Tourist Board.
I’ll bring you more dispatches through the week on mahi-mahi, rum, goat racing and hummingbirds.
But for now a doff of the bandana again to the steel band who were playing Gloria in Excelsis Deo.
And this is the best countdown to Christmas, 30C and dips in the Caribbean.
You have to look for Santa, there was a poster of him in the Lowlands Mall near Mount Irvine.
While the grotto was up at Fort George.
Jesus, looking worryingly like Phil Collins, would be cool in this weather but what the Three Wise Men were thinking in those robes.
