Rolled out bright and early this a.m. in anticipation of our impending ‘ change of scenery’. We woke up with coffee and our usual routine. Before long, we packed up — cleaned stuff out of the fridge we didn’t think would make it until we got back and loaded up into DD to head out. We decided the best thing to do would be stop by Blues Backyard BBQ for a drink (or 4) before we left and say good bye to some of our most favorite people on the island and pick up any last minute tips on things to do here on St. Thomas (feels really weird to say that). Multiple drinks under our belt, we headed for the sea port. For our first excursion to STT (St. Thomas) I wanted to take the sea plane. We watch it fly by the house several time a day on it’s return from STT. I’m hoping on our return, I can get a couple shots of the condo from the air 😉 We got loaded up and away we went~! I don’t guess I’ve ever flown on a sea plane before – it was cool as hell, even though we sat RIGHT NEXT to the prop. I told my Bride if one of those blades comes off, we are hamburger…. probably not the best tiding to mention at the beginning of the flight but that is just how my mind works…….. Anyhow… cool, cool, cool take off. I have some pictures and videos of it – but the video is waaay to big to put on here, so you’ll either have to skip it or watch it on FB. [[sorry]]
We arrived without issue 20minutes after take off. Landing was a bit funky from my perspective, because about all you could see was houses as we came in for the landing….. a little unnerving – but cool as hell~!!! It took a lot more effort to get our vehicle once we were here than I would have liked – but we finally got it and took off for our destination – Margaritaville Resort. After 20 minutes or so of my navigation – I opted to engage ‘Seri’ and have her tell me how to get to where we are going. She missed nary a turn and we were soon pulling into the resort. Nice little place – a little bit, check that – quite a bit, disorganized, but one of the first things they did was offer me a Margarita – so they are alright in my book~!! Finally got our room squared away…….. scenery to die for at the resort – looking almost directly at St. John (STJ). We both agreed we needed something in our belly besides booze (neither of us had eaten all day) – so we headed to the Margaritaville restaurant for a bite. My Queen got a classic Cheeseburger while I opted for a turkey club. Wasn’t going for the healthy thing – I was looking for something to soak up hooch —- but yay me for the healthy thing 😉
Bellies full (of food and booze) we have waddled back to the comfort of our room, cranked down the A/C, because I don’t have to pay extra for it now….. and here I sit and regale you of the day. I have 80+ pictures for you — will not get them all put up tonight – but will spread them out over the week. Over my limit (yes I found my word counter) 😉 More tomorrow~!
Good night Ya’ll ….. Thankx for stopping in~!
