Carnival - Day IV

St. Thomas, USVI - Only 32 square miles in size, pirates once roamed the alleys of this beautiful place, which now host a treasure trove of stores. But there’s more to this shopper’s Shangri-la than an international grab bag of perfume and electronics. This U.S. Virgin Island also claims one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, heart-shaped Magens Bay; a world-renowned golf course; and spectacular nightlife. You can don a snorkel to explore coral reefs bright as a wildflower meadow, or take in the amazing views on a soaring aerial tram ride to Paradise Point.

Saint Thomas is an island in the Caribbean Sea and, with the smaller islands of Saint John and Water Island, a county and constituent district of the United States Virgin Islands (USVI), an unincorporated territory of the United States. Located on the island is the territorial capital and port of Charlotte Amalie. As of the 2000 census, the population of Saint Thomas was 51,181 about 47% of the US Virgin Island total. The district has a land area of 31.24 square miles (80.9 km). Source: Wikipedia


  1. Oh, I do hope everyone's having a great time. How could you not with a view like that.

    Lois found some youtube video where you can spot your Hubby and Sandy's hubby and we think some others we recognized. It has been so much fun following the adventures.

    But, I have to say, its awfully quiet round the blogosphere. I miss you all!


  2. Looks so beautifully. Almost makes me want to head back to Barbados to live, I do miss the blue skies, beautifuly beachs and swimming in the Caribbean Sea...

  3. Lois the Spaminator here... here's the URL to the video Lisa mentioned. You can see our cruisers starting at the :57 mark.

  4. Sounds like a great time. That is a beautiful view you posted.


  5. Such a beautiful place. A friend was there a couple years ago and couldn't stop talking about the sand and how soft it was, she said it was like walking in powdered sugar

  6. If I was a pirate I'd hang out there too. Beautiful!

  7. You take off for a cruise and you leave us with Charlie Sheen, was this planned????

  8. I love the tropics! Have only been to Hawai'i but love the islands more than anything. Zane - please love the cruise!

  9. Looks very beautiful there. Just about perfect.

  10. Magen's Bay just might be the most beautiful beach I have ever visited!
    I hope you had a great time in St. Thomas!
