So our second island on our vacation was St. Thomas. Now that's a place I would go back to. Mostly because I didn't see much of it. Did I mention that I got sick on day 3? I haven't caught a cold in years. I got the one from hell while on the ship. So to be quite honest, St; Thomas is a blur. This was also the island that we had scheduled an excursion - we were sailing on a catamaran to St. John's island. None of my family believed I would step foot on a sailboat, much less sail for an hour in rough waters. I was going to prove them wrong. I am 50 now and I am looking for new adventures! I can't tell you how close I was to canceling because I felt so sick. But I didn't.
I sat on that boat and instead of snorkeling I was chief photographer.
The water was so pretty. I didn't really catch a good photo of the color unfortunately.
Nicole got great underwater videos. We are still messing around with the Go-Pro to see how to download the videos.
We had a leisurely sail back. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. And I didn't get sea sick.
And now I can say I have been sailing.
It's a very mountainous island. The drive over to the sailboat was very scenic. It was interesting having to stop for lizards crossing the street. Fun fact of the day - drinking and driving is NOT illegal in St. Thomas. But you better have a shirt on. There's a $75 fine for that.
