To begin with St. Thomas is part of the U.S. Virgin Islands - so why do they drive on the other side of the road. Someone said that it harkens back to when they were a Danish colony - in Denmark they don't drive on that side of the road either...
O.K. So this day we decided to take the skyrail & walk around - or vice versa.
We actually walked first, but flickr is showing my skyrail photos first so....
Do you see the orange roofs near the harbor - that is a fancy schmancy shopping area - the other side of the street? Low income housing & K-mart. :o)
At the top where these maps
so you could tell what you were looking at. I took a photo so I could see later - I can't see much...
So all I can say with any authority is that the boat in this photo is our ship.
There was a nice little nature walk (I am still convinced that we made a wrong turn, but...) so i took several floral photos, but I really like this one:
Who am I kidding, I took floral flowers everywhere, but I am not blogging the heck out of them.
The sign was cute enough to photograph. At the top were similar signs where you could pose with the lizards. (& a groups of teen/twenty-somethings taking full advantage - use your imagination - I got to watch while I sent my husband off for a cocktail - Bailey's Bushwhacker - can't go wrong if you add Bailey's in my book.)
There was a small baseball/baton twirler parade while we were shopping:
But this guy I am not sure what his story was, but he was harassing/had just harassed/was about to harass the guy (or the previous one) for taking his photograph - without paying - so I took one on the sly - I'm sneaky like that.
St. Thomas is supposedly known for "streets" made of stairs... This was the only set that we found, not that we were looking... The best part of those stairs - the kitties:
Form the sign, I though that this was going to be "something" - it wasn't.
This was our last "stop" on the cruise. I plan to post "general" aka I don't remember where we were photos next & the finish up with the Rainforest on San Juan.
