No Workshops Today
****NOTE: Check out Tim's blog today for his recap and awesome video of the cruise!
Today we were in port almost all day, from 11:00am to 7:00pm. I've been to St. Thomas several times, and as it was also burning hot, I didn't race off the ship. But Pat and I did venture off, and decided to see the island in a way neither of us had before, by taking the skyride (a tram) up to the top of Paradise Point. Incredible views from up there, but we did both want to smack one of our fellow passengers who spent the entire ride discussing other trams that had crashed to earth. Was that really the best venue for such a conversation?
Anyway, first the views from our balcony.
On line for the tram. I do look a bit dewy, don't I? Sounds better than saying I was sweating like a farm animal.
Many photo ops at the top of the mountain, as well as some very good bar food and a cold beer.
On last year's cruise Pat and I had a wonderful meal at Portofino, one of the ship's specialty restaurants. We booked a table for 6 and enjoyed another beautifully prepared and artistically served Italian meal with Elena, Bernie, Val, and Rob.
Here I am getting ready to attack my seafood skewer.
A gorgeous dessert sampler. Yes, I ate the whole thing.
Tomorrow, St. Maarten and a one hour workshop that resulted in a gorgeous finished project. In just one hour!
