14 - 18th March 2010  Crown Bay Marina, St Thomas USVI
The 5 days spent in the marina were very hot and busy - at last the problems with the water, gearbox,
dinghy and Furuno are sorted out, although a lot of money spent!
We did manage one day to explore the island (and visit the chandleries!). St Thomas is a busy place - on
one day there were 5 enormous cruise ships in port - Charlotte Amalie seemed packed with nothing but all the
shops the cruisers cannot do without. What we can't make out is whether they actually buy new tee-shirts,
sarongs, fridge magnets, table cloths and most importantly JEWELLERY at every port.
Two views from the top of St Thomas - it rises to over 1550ft although less than 3miles across at that point
   North side - lovely beaches and a distant view of BVIs              Sunset gives Charlotte Amalie a more peaceful look
