St. Thomas

Today we visit St. Thomas which is part of the British Virgin Islands and the home Blackbeard’s Castle. Many famous people have homes in the out lying Mountain areas of Bordeaux . Snorkeling and diving are among the many watersports popular on the Islands.


The climate year round is betweeen 73 and 89 degrees farenheit. April through August are more popular for Scuba as the waters usually are clearer then. Sugar Cane was a profitable export in the 18th century , over 25 sugar producing factories existed.

We head to the Popular island of St. John also known as the ” Emerald of The Carribean” and after a mile long hike end up at the Seventh Most Beautiful Beach in the World (according to National Geographic Magazine) ” Honey Moon Beach”


Rockefellar Plantation on Caneel Bay, now has a resort here but the grounds and Sugar Mill ruins are still part of the historical preservation.

I have moved a lot in my lifetime. I also love cars, so loving travel is logical. My first attempt at being my own travel agent came after an exasperating experience in 2001. I had booked a Disney Vacation Package it was to be our first far away vacation as a family and my children’s first visit to Disney World. Through our travel agent I made the arrangements which included a direct flight, transportation, and our hotel with trip insurance. We were scheduled to fly out in November 2001 but then September 11th happened and that changed everything. First there were a lot of air restrictions besides being afraid to travel. I made some calls to see what would happen and found out the flights would be changed. The regulations no longer allowed for any direct flights due to concerns of hijacking and carrying too much fuel. I called the travel agent to cancel and was told the insurance did not cover that type of cancellation. I was furious. What was the point of paying for the Insurance? I was told we could possibly call the airlines for a credit and drive, which was not an option. After weeks of worrying we made the trip. The flight originally was 4hrs but now took 21 hrs but we had a great time. From then on I am the only one in charge of my travel arrangements. Check out my Disney Quick Tips.
