Azamara: USVI Tranquility
On most trips, my husband forgets at least one essential item – this time, it was shorts. For a South Florida guy who pretty much lives in shorts, this was a big surprise. So, we have another fairly immediate shopping opportunity.
Yesterday we flew to San Juan, Puerto Rico to sail on the Azamara Quest for a New Year’s trip in the Caribbean. This morning we woke up in the USVI, St. John to be specific, to bright blue skies, turquoise water and an amazing rainbow. Awfully nice of the Azamara folks to schedule that rainbow; we hear the President of the company is on board, so maybe it was planned. . .
It was a relaxing day visiting the Virgin Islands National Park (covering 2/3 of this small island), enjoying incredible views, seeing ruins of the Annaberg Sugar Plantation, and walking along the famously beautiful Trunk Bay beach. Got some great scenic shots before lunching on Mahi tacos and Conch fritters at the harbor-side restaurant, High Tide. We concluded our shore visit by successfully searching the Cruz Bay area shops for shorts!
Now, about time for that massage.
