Day 15 and 16:  Finally


Friday was the first day of my new job with Jonathan’s company.  I trained pretty much the entire time which was nice, but a little overwhelming.  I think my head actually hurt after I finished.  I am able to work at home along side Jonathan which is nice since he knows quite a bit about the subject matter.

Secret Harbour


Finally, Saturday was here.  There was no work and no school for the kids.  We slept in as late as we could which was 8:00AM.  Then we got ready for our beach adventure.  We are trying to go to a different beach each time since there are so many on St. Thomas.  We decided to go to Secret Harbour.  There is a resort there as well by that same name.  I looked up the resort which would cost you $400 a night.

Floating Platform


That is a perk of St. Thomas.  All of the beaches are public.  Thank goodness because this one is not to be missed.  Soft white sand, clear blue water, drifting platform, and a drink girl.  We all practiced our swimming as we went out to the platform which was about forty feet away from the shore.  Both of the kids made it.  Then we sunbathed and watched a local teaching a swimming class.

Cool Breeze


We had lunch on our beach blankets and ordered pina coladas for all four of us.  I also tried the pain killer which is a very popular local drink similar to a pina colada with a dash of nutmeg on top.  Ingredients include:





2 oz of Cruzan rum

1 oz cream of coconut

4 oz pineapple juice

1 oz of orange juice

with a sprinkle of nutmeg





Then we ate at a restaurant named the Fat Turtle.  It is along the ocean near the sailboats at Havensight which is one of the main ports for the cruise ships.  It offers sandwiches, salads, and a few dinner entrees.  We had a good time.  We have heard that it is the place to be on Friday night.

What's for dinner?

Then we walked around the area.  Because of the cruise ships, there are quite a few restaurants and shops around Havensight.  We also stared at the boats trying to figure out if we wanted the $500,000 yacht or could we be content with one that is more reasonable in the $250,000 range.  haha

"Mommy what is inside this cannon?" BOOM


Beautiful view even at night
