St Thomas USVI
Good Morning US Virgin Islands – the view from deck 14 as the sun came up was spectacular.
The captain of the Pearl literally parallel parked the behemoth in between two other ships docked at St Thomas. There were no tugboats involved. I would have never believed it unless I saw it myself!
Our excursion to St John was later in the day so Tim and flagged a taxi and went into town. Four bucks for a taxi anywhere – kind of a deal wouldn’t you say?
If we got asked once, we got asked a dozen times if we wanted to buy jewelry. Really?? Do I look like a jewelry kind of girl?
We rode a gondola looking kind of thing up the side of a mountain which was really fun and a little scary. The view from the top was worth the slightly swinging car.
We had just enough time to go back to the ship for some lunch and change into our snorkeling attire before our boat ride to St John. I was too chicken to bring my camera since I wanted to snorkel so I left it on the boat. I could kick myself for that one.
We did buy a disposable underwater for fifteen bucks which captured the proof I was actually in the ocean at the same time as my husband – a first in our marriage.
