St. Thomas U.S.V.I.

Our first stop on our Caribbean cruise was the US Virgin Island of St. Thomas. We took an ultimate island experience tour. This was my first bus trip since the fatal one and I was nervous, but excited too! After driving with some amazing photo stops including Drake's Seat we spent a few hours in Megans Bay Beach, one of the worlds top 10 beaches. It was gorgeous, and a must see if you are ever in St. Thomas. The waters were crystal clear, and calm. We snorkeled and saw sea turtles!

One of the many picture stops on our tour

After Megan's Bay our tour took us to Black Beard's Castle. I enjoyed this walking tour. Mostly because it included a tour of a rum factory and rum tasting ;) We swam in the waterfall pools, and walked along the museum route. The walking tour ended with an Amber museum with a huge Amber waterfall, that has a legend that if you touch it you will recieve finacial fortune. Of course we rubbed that baby! (We actually won in the cruises' casino that evening!!)

Then we continued with our tour to main street that has some fabulous shopping! We bought some souvenieres and Josue got a new wallet! We concluded our tour with a Harbor Cruise back to our ship. It was just beautiful!
