doing the touristy thing

You drive on the left side of the road in the Virgin Islands, yet everyone drives a car with the steering wheel on the left side. A little scary. The speed limit all over the island is 35mph country and 20mph city. There's no stretch of road straight enough or level enough to get up much speed.

I cobbled together this view of Megan Bay Beach from four photos. The vistas here are too large for one shot.

Dorothy and I at Drake's Seat. This is where Sir Francis Drake sat and watched for Spanish ship activity. He would send word back to England of the ship movements.

Megan Bay from Mountain Top

Bob and Rachel sip banana daiquiris on the balcony of Mountain Top, a tourist gift shop mall at one of the highest points on the island. Megan Bay is in the background.

Remember the day we spent on Water Island? That's a view of it from the mountain road on St Thomas.

This is the restaurant at Paradise Point
And this is the view from Paradise Point
