World famous Mountain Top in St Thomas.   What a fun place!

We took a tour on winding roads up to the top.  We could see our ship and others in the harbor on the way, and beautiful views of the ocean.

It is at the highest point on St Thomas, which is 2100 feet above sea level.  The view is magnificent, as are the banana daiquiris made with fresh bananas.  They were the best ever.  There is a huge shopping mart where I found cute string-art earrings.  I am not a big shopper, but love to look.   As I was paying for my earrings, the power went out.  The clerk said “Don’t worry, it happens all the time! ”   And she proceeded to ring me up with her back-up system. There was a fire a few years ago, so it has all been rebuilt.  It was a great day.

Who has parasailed? It is a fantastic thing to do. I thought we would land in the water, so I was not anxious to do this. After finding out we would take off from the boat like a kite, gliding up gently and then be reeled back onto the boat, I agreed to try it. It was so much fun, and so quiet. It reminded me of the time I went up in a glider. Eddie and I went tandem, and he finally got me to let go of the harness and just enjoy. It was a terrific day.  

 When returning from dinner or one of the ships functions you may be greeted by a friendly critter. It may be hanging or sitting somewhere in your room. The ship or your room steward  will determine if you have this pleasure.

 

 

This is an example of what we call “our ship is in.”  We love taking pics of small boats.  This one was in a motel parking lot in San Diego.

We are not avid photographers, so this gives us something to look for.  After all, how many pictures can you take of each other?

We are having a nice winter so far, but we really need some snow for the water this summer.  It’s ok with me if it all falls in the mountains and not at our house. I grew up in Miami, so snow took some getting used to.  Now that I am a senior citizen, I can do without snow.   However, Eddie is ready for it—the 4-wheeler has a plow and he has a full-size plow on an old pick-up.  Both are tuned up and ready to go.  No shovel for him!

Off the subject, do any readers cross-stitch?  That is my hobby, and I always have a project going.  Well, usually several, and I’m not going to count the ones I have put aside for lack of interest or because I miscounted and have to fix it.

Have a lovely day, and thanks for reading our blog.

We welcome comments or even a short story of your own.
