Spanish Virgin Islands Cruise on the Arabella

Cruz BayCruz Bay (Marilynne Bradley)
The overcast weather makes it an ideal morning to sail to St. Thomas’s rocks of Christmas Cove, a popular dive spot. The cove got it’s name from sailors meeting in this area on Christmas. Passengers snorkel off the ship. A photo op is taken as everyone takes turns climbing to the end of the bowsprit and pose ala “Titanic”.

After lunch we cruise to Cruz Bay, St. John. I go into town to scout out restaurants for the evening dinner. The town is filled with tourists shopping for jewelry, t-shirts and sun glasses and imbibing in bars. I lost my visor somewhere in the shopping mode. Rain showers enter the picture. An afternoon siesta is in order. Dinner is provided in a beach restaurant of simple good fare such and hamburgers and onion rings.
