(Wednesday, February 26, 2014 – AM)
We woke Wednesday morning in St. Thomas having sailed there overnight and docked earlier in the morning. Today we had an AM excursion booked which one again ended up being the same that Tonya’s family had booked. It was great for the kids to have one another to hang out with on our excursion.
This time we boarded open air jeeps with 5 rows of seats. A much nicer ride and a bonus was that we could hear our driver too. We enjoyed this tour much more than the last one! It was called the, ‘Best of St. Thomas Island Tour and Shopping’. Our ride for the day:
This tour basically took us all over the island and stopped at about 5 different lookout points that (surprise, surprise!) each had shopping available at them too. Some were tiny stalls but the final one was a huge store that Hannah and I didn’t even put a dent in!
The kids (ok, Hannah!) asked if they could sit together this trip. We were all in splits when we looked over a few minutes into the drive and saw this!! LOL – I don’t think Jacob knew what to make of this!
I stand corrected. Daddy wasn’t as happy about this as he ‘lost his boy.’ Heehee!
Hannah also found a place where she could try out the steel drums that she’d heard a band playing the previous day in St. Martin. There was a ‘please do not touch’ sign on the drum so Hannah was just looking at it. We didn’t realize one of the store staff was watching her and she came over, removed the sign and gave Hannah the mallet to try out the drum. I love how gentle Hannah was!
It was early afternoon when we made our way back to the ship. The weather was absolutely perfect and you know this was a welcome sight was we neared our ship! Another special detail that makes Disney ‘Disney’! Cold water, lemon water, watermelon water, lemonade and iced tea. So refreshing!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in St. Thomas!
