You may have been thinking that I have milked this port-of-call to the max. I have done that purposely because I would like to show you that there's plenty to do in a very limited time in these ports-of-call.
Moving on, when our friends met up with us again later on we had to take them to the store where we had tasted ambrosia, aka flavored rum. Once the shopping was done we got back to the car and headed towards Blackbeard's Castle, a popular attraction. How disappointed were we went we got there and the place just closed for the day.
On the way to Flag Hill, we took a random stop to enjoy the view.
Since we had to make the most of our dwindling time in the island, we opted to drive up to Flag Hill and see where the St. Thomas Skyride terminate. The skyride is a gondola ride that takes you up to Flag Hill some 700 ft above the town of Charlotte Amalie.
The view is pretty fantastic from here.
That's our ship.
Three ships arrived that day, but the island did not seem overcrowded.
By the time we have arrived back in the port, it was raining again.
