What's Sheryll up to now?

Caribbean (June 9-21, 2006)

St Thomas, USVI

one of Barbados' many beautiful beaches

The next morning we docked bright and early at St Thomas. Here is a view of Charlotte-Amalie, the capital, on our way in.

Charlotte-Amalie is a popular shopping stop for cruise ships in the Caribbean.

St Thomas is part of the US Virgin Islands (another US territory), so we were able to use US$ here too. After a couple of hours wandering around Charlotte-Amalie, we went on a tour of the island. Here is the harbour viewed from the hills above. Our ship is at left.

The Royal Caribbean cruise ship 'Explorer of the Seas' was also in port.

Magens Bay is known as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Here is a view of it.

Hans Lollick is the big island in the distance.

We didn't get to visit it, though. Instead we went to Coki Beach, which is great for snorkeling. I didn't rent snorking gear, but just used my swimming goggles.

The Coral World underwater observatory can be seen at left.
