Day 9 - Saturday, 25 May 2002

We arrived in St. Thomas at 8am.  We met our tour group on the pier at 9.  After a brief ferry ride, we arrived at the Water Island dock and library.  We were taken to the top of the island and issue a mountain bike for the trip.  We were then led on a 5 mile trip around the island.  We saw a lot of remains of buildings destroyed by Hurricane Hugo in 1989.  The bike tour concluded on the beach with swimming and drinks.

We took the ferry back to the pier and walked into St. Thomas.  We had lunch and the Hard Rock Cafe.  It was not a lunch to be remembered.  I think our waitress forgot about us right after we sat down.  After lunch, we did some shopping and returned to the ship for dinner. 

After dinner, we packed our bag.  Our luggage was placed outside our door at about 10pm.  That was the last time we saw it until about 9 the next morning.
