After going back to Florida for a short visit, we returned to St. Thomas. The day we returned, the Oasis of the Seas was in, so we strolled over to ooh and ah over this huge ship, and watched it depart. The next day we provisioned, topped off the fuel tanks, and got ready to move again; leaving today (Thursday) from Crown Bay Marina.
We headed for Christmas Cove on Great St James Island off the east coast of St Thomas because it was a short hop and we needed to get our sea legs under us again. We picked up a mooring (on the first try!) After lunch we kayaked to the south end of the cove, beached the boat, and swam in to snorkel. This is some of the clearest water we've ever seen. The coral on the reef was a little disappointing, but we saw some beautiful fish. The big sighting today were squid! We hadn't seen them before and there they were! Enjoy John's photos.
