BC10: Part 3
After Amber Cove, we stopped at St. Thomas, USVI. We were supposed to dock at 11 A.M., but rain and wind from the previous night delayed us to 12:15. After getting off the ship, we took a Skyride to Paradise Point.
Later, we took a taxi to Magen's Bay where we relaxed and read on the beach or cooled off in the water. That evening, Madison and I went to Hasbro, The Game Show, an interactive game show with audience contestants, which was lots of fun.
The following morning, we woke up in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We didn't have an excursion planned, but after walking off the dock a guy offered a $10 bus tour and we took him up on his offer. The first place we stopped was a beautiful beach; then, we drove past the beautiful capital building that faces the ocean and a statue that appears to be flipping the bird. Finally, we stopped at one of the forts and the oldest cemetery in the new world before heading back to Old San Juan.
In Old San Juan, we did lots of shopping, got pictures with tropical birds, and ate lunch at the Parrot Club. After lunch, we did more shopping, then headed back to the ship for reading and card games.
