On Sunday we took the ferry to the island of St. John, another of the U.S. Virgin Islands. It is only 4 miles from St. Thomas, so it is a short trip. St. John is smaller, less developed and much slower-paced than St. Thomas. It is very beautiful and about 2/3 of the island are a U.S. National Park. We had a great day. We wandered around the waterfront, watched people in the plaza, had a nice dinner and took the ferry back early in the evening.
