Triumph sailed into port at St. Thomas on Tuesday morning at 7:00. It was slightly overcast that morning, but the
view was still spectacular. We started our morning off slow and easy, and made our plans to explore on the island after
Shane, Julia, and I made a trek to Coral World at Coki Bay after lunch on the ship. The ride over
was interesting, to say the least, as our transportation was a converted pickup truck. No car seats, seat belts, or
even doors on there! And the driver must have known her way quite well, judging by the speed at which she traveled!
Julia fell asleep during the drive; how, I'll never know. But we arrived safe and sound with plenty of time to
see feeding time at Shark Shallows and in the Coral Experience. There were touch pools with all kinds of sea life to
see (we were too chicken to touch them!), and a nature trail with plenty of iguanas and tortoises. It was a nice excursion,
just the right pace for a small family with a one year old in tow.
After an adventurous day on St. Thomas, everyone shared dinner together once again. Everything was
delicious, and we exchanged stories of all we had done and seen on the beautiful island that day. A walk on deck afterward
seemed like the perfect way to wrap things up, and we returned to our cabin with a fun surprise awaiting.
