The first day we landed in St. Thomas. The plan here was that me, my 2 sisters and my parents would branch off from the other 4, take a rental car, and hit the beach. This was probably the most relaxing day we had!
We got the rental car, and guess what, in St Thomas they drive on the left side of the road. To make things more confusing however, they don’t use the British style cars (where driver sits on right side), they use American cars (maybe because they are American territory?) which puts the driver on the outside of the road. That made it very difficult for dad to drive, and we all had to be very quiet. Shhhhhhh. Ok, that’s a little tricky for a bunch of women on the way to the beach!
We made it there safely, despite not being able to see around some turns. The beach is free to visit but you have to pay $5 for a beach chair and they have a bar. Our server’s name was Sasha and she was very hospitable. There were specials on buckets of Corona. I had Heather or Katrina take a picture of me doing the stereotype corona by the beach picture, but its on someone else’s camera. I wanted to make Lee a little jealous!
Her name is Lady Gaga and she wears a beautiful flowered hat. Take whatever jokes from that you want!
The roads were pretty steep (or we thought this until we got to some of the other islands) Here is a picture I took out the back window, level with the car. As you can see, you cant see road! That’s how steep it was!
Heather wasn’t allowed to sit at the bar swings because she wasn’t 18. However, she WAS allowed to sit on a stool 2 feet back from the bar and watch us enjoy the swings. Doesn’t she look like she is having a great time?
After we got on the ship, it was pretty much a normal night. Dinner at 6, then after I had relaxed enough to feel less bloated, I went to the gym and went for a nice 5 mile run on the treadmill. I was happy to find out that my Monday night shows were on my own personal treadmill TV, so the time passed quickly and soon the gym was closing. Early to bed. Early to rise!
This cool dude greeted me in my room and assisted in a restful slumber.
