Have any of you seen the Pirates of the Caribbean? In the first one, The Curse of the Black Pearl there was a place called Port Royal where Johnny Depp steps on the dock after his boat sinks. It is the second scene of the movie and the first scene Johnny Depp is in. We went into the port and looked around, but we didn’t stay there because there were two murders there recently. We also saw the rock where the pirates hanged. “Pirates ye be warned”. The rock isn’t as impressive as it is in the movie, but it was fun to see.
Now we’re in the Tobago cays, and they also filmed a part of the Pirates of the Caribbean here. This was the part where Elizabeth Swan and Captain Jack Sparrow were marooned on the desert island. Once again, we went to that island and I found the ditch where they stashed the rum but all the wood wasn’t there “obviously.” The filmed the 4 movies all over the Caribbean, but most of the first movie was in St. Vincent or the Grenadines.
After we played pirate we went snorkeling in the cays and saw a lot of cool fish and coral. The reef was really healthy. I saw a barracuda and some tuna, an octopus and some reef sharks. Later we snorkeled in the Marine Turtle reserve and saw some more cool reef creatures. We didn’t actually see turtles while we were snorkeling, but we saw a few while we were in the dingy.
