We rode the ferry back to St. Thomas with the bride's parents and wished them a good trip back home to the cold. After a stop at the grocery store we returned to the condo complex, checking into a different unit. We were surprised to find that the "kitchen" consisted of a mini-frig and hot plate with no sink. The groceries we had purchased did not involve extensive preparation, but I found myself making the salad on the toilet; there was no counter space.

This lack of cooking facilities was more than compensated by the marvelous view and the pool right outside our door. We went out for a dip in the pool and all of a sudden the afternoon was over. It's conceivable that another day could pass by in this pleasant fashion.

At sunset we head to the aptly named Paradise Point to watch the cruise ships sail away. We missed the first two which left at 4pm. They certainly didn't have much time to visit St. Thomas. A dramatic thunderhead formed on the horizon halfway to Puerto Rico. The illumination from the setting sun made it a dramatic back drop to the departing ships.
