We arrived in St Thomas this morning, and I’ve got 50 cruisers plus 18 spouses and friends that are ready to disembark and have some island time today!
There are many excursions to choose from, something for everyone.
I’m going with a group on the 5 star Island tour which sounds right up to my liking with 2 hours of shopping time, and 2 hours of beach time.
That’s about all I can handle…...let me tell you, it’s hot hot hot and humid here in the Caribbean!
As always I am amazed by the crystal clear water – the sheer aqua color of it.
It’s just gorgeous here!
Our pilot boat leaving us as we pull into port.
This was my view on this morning’s walk before breakfast.
There is just something thrilling about spending days at sea (Remember, on Monday we were supposed to stop at Coco Cay, but weather was not permitting the tenders, so we sailed on!) and finally coming back up on land.
I imagine those who sailed for “the new world” from Europe centuries ago – nothing but water for months on end, and then they finally see land. I wonder what they would think of this kind of “pleasure cruising!”
Enjoying some solo balcony time!
Our workshop day yesterday was a blast, and everyone got so much done since we had a half-day’s head start from our day at sea before.
We get a break today and tomorrow while we explore the beauty of St Maarten. Evening open sew happens from 7:30 to 10pm, so there is still plenty of time to work on our projects after our tour day has ended and we have found ourselves back on board the ship.
Our next full day class days are Friday and Saturday. We’ll be back in Port Canaveral early Sunday Morning --
Time is flying by so fast!
Love from St Thomas -
