St Thomas Run

St. Thomas USVI & Moms

First thing we see is they are changing up the airport a little.  I can remember flying in here and you walked through a boarded walkway with wire on the top to meet your party at the end.  It really felt like you had gone to a remote island.  No jetbridges yet so you still walk down the steps out of the plane and the rum shot stand still greets you as you enter the airport area so I guess not too modern yet! Met Mom ~ always so good to see her! then off to Bluebeards Castle to meet up with Captain Paul for lunch. This is also one of the few places according to mom that serves breakfast late into the day and I love that!! 
The view from the pool there is stunning~
Cierra & I must have been starving as we inhaled a full breakfast in moments!
Headed home for the evening and going to sail tomorrow.  Mom & Pauls place is on Bunker hill next to Blackbeards Castle.  They occasionally have rental units avail if you are looking for a specific time shoot me an email and I will find out if they have anything open.  Their place is great!  Comfy, convenient, pool and views!

The best place for morning coffee - moms place!
We all headed out on the Dancing Dolphin for a sail - I recommend this fun, sun & rum!  2 stops with great snorkeling, rays, turtles, fish and a shipwreck.

Feel blessed to spend time with Mom!  
Lunch on Water Island ~ what a great view ~
Sailing back into St. Thomas harbor and the views of Charlotte Amalie are beautiful ~ 
We spent our last day with Mom & Paul running a couple of errands, picking up more Critter Oil (it helps keep off the mosquitoes that are causing Chikungunya, I brought some home) checking on their Sail Marilee and of all things a fish spa!!  
What a great visit.  Always too short but am so glad I get to see them more often now!  Already planning the next St. Thomas run!
