St.Thomas, US.V.I. - Views from the Balcony

Good morning,

Today's images were taken from the balcony of my brother's stateroom aboard Freedom of the Seas.
One morning I stopped by their stateroom and enjoyed watching the activity in the harbor of St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. while we chatted.
There are some very expensive toys tied up here!
This "pirate ship" was on the way in to pick up a group of tourists for a tour.
 This view looking forward toward the bow of Freedom we could see the tiny tour boat tied up at the dock.

I always consider my digital images to be my best souvenirs wherever we go.  While on a ship just sitting and watching with a camera in your hand can be as much (or more!) fun as trying to do everything that you could possibly do out here.  ;)

We had a wonderful time while my brother and sister-in-law were here.  It is so much fun to be able to spend some time together, have a meal together, and talk about old times when no one has to do the dishes. 

Best,
Lois

Hello Lois
As I wa scrolling down and looking at the photos I mentally said to my self 'theres a lot of money tied up in that marina - when the next words I read were - there are some very expensive toys tied up here. You took the words out of my mouth, how clever is that lol
Great shots - makes me think about putting that cruise on my list.
Take care

Always fun to just sit in a quiet corner and watch the activity in a busy place like this.
