Exploring the Vibrant ST. Thomas Islands

St Thomas (USVI) was another day port on my cruise.

The white sand beaches
of St George Island USVI

There were not any definite excursion plan for the day so saw just exploring as my best option. The visitor's booth suggested the island of St John. Just outside the port exit there were many open air buses available to the island's west end, Red Hook.  About 20 minutes later we were delivered to a modern passenger ferry terminal for the ride to St. Johns Island. What was most interesting and terrifying about the rides was that the cars/trucks were driving on the opposite side. I guess I was not in Kansas any longer.

St johns, Cruz Bay is beautiful. Just as you exit the ferry, Cruz Bay offered white sand / aqua water beaches, quaint shops and open air tropical restaurants. 

Everything you would expect to see on a tropical island escape. I was told later that I should have take a short taxi ride to Trunk Bay Beach, but I was completely taken by the beauty of Cruz Bay's and its island attractions. 

An amazing lunch was had at The High Tide Seafood Grill overlooking the ferry port and beach.
