Arrival - St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.

Good morning,

This week one of our ports of call was St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.
I wasn't the only person on deck 12 of Freedom of the Seas to enjoy the beautiful scenery as we arrived.
Look carefully to see people watching from the helipad on the bow of the ship, also.
Here comes the pilot boat...
 ...who comes aboard to consult with the bridge team as the ship's Captain brings the ship into port.
 I've been coming to St. Thomas for at least 25 years.  There has been a tremendous increase in building on that hillside during that time.
 There are already ships in port.


 We will tie up to that extension of the dock.
 A sea plane...
 ...was taking off as we were pulling in.  There is always something different to see.

We had a lovely day in St. Thomas. 

All the best,
Lois
