US Virgin Islands, St. Thomas

St. Thomas is geared up for the cruise ships so the shopping is great, duty free. We anchored off the Yacht Haven Grande marina. When there are no cruise ships in port, the stores in the Havensight Mall at the marina are all closed.

While at St. Thomas we helped Blake celebrate his 40th birthday aboard Spectra. Slow Mocean stayed a couple of days before heading back to Culebra where she will stay for a couple of weeks while Sunny and Blake return to the States. We hope they will catch up with us further "down island".

Some of the bar and souvenir kiosks on a cruiseship-free day.

Abandoned sugar mill.
