Spanish Virgin Islands Cruise on the Arabella

The IndiansThe Indians (Marilynne Bradley)
At the crack of dawn we are ready to pack. Luggage must be out of the cabin by 7:30am. We sail to Cruz Bay, St John for a simple customs check and continue to Red Hook, St. Thomas. The crew and passengers gather for a last minute photo. Taxi’s are waiting at the dock. We wave goodbye to each dingy of departing passengers. For $30 the taxi drives us to the airport. We retrieve our carry-ons, stand in line for boarding passes for tomorrow and walk to the Island Beachcomber Hotel . Our room isn’t ready so we relax on the sandy beach. Vic goes in for a swim. The weather changes to rainy showers. Lunch at the bar/restaurant on the beach is a shared fish and chips dish with pina colada smoothies for drinks. Cold breezes change the air temperature. We retreat to our room for a nap and don’t wake up til 8:30 pm. The moon is out and the rains are gone. A perfect night to stroll the beach. We repack for our flight home. The rafts are left in the closet.
