This afternoon three couples of us took the ferry to Water Island which is just across the harbor from Charlotte Amalie. About the first thing we saw was the Water Island library/post office, above.
We walked about a quarter of a mile to a beautiful little beach where there were lots of boats. There was also the kind of mobile kitchen wagon that you usually see selling hot dogs or fast food. This one is equipped to provide restaurant-style fare on the beach. As soon as we arrived we could smell roasting garlic and our mouths began to water. We placed our orders for steak with garlic-roasted potatoes and Ceasar salad which was served at picnic tables on the beach. We brought several bottles of wine along and as we ate we watched the sunset over the water. I took the first picture when I thought it was at its most beautiful. Then it got better.
When the sun was finally gone we saw a cruise ship, lighted up like a Christmas tree, slip past in the distance and the lights come on on St. Thomas just across the harbor.
