Dan dropped Steffi and Robert off at the beach, computer in hand, so they might walk over to the lovely Peter Island Resort in search of Wi-Fi. This charming resort, built in the 1960s by a Norwegian family and recently renovated, had great services and they were able to get Steffi checked in for her tomorrow morning flight. That, as you all know by now, is subject to change when you are a non-revenue, stand-by patron!
Since we were heading back into the US territories of the USVI, we had to check back into country with Customs and Immigration. We headed back to St. John and grabbed a temporary mooring ball in Caneel Bay, made the phone call to Customs and Immigration then took the tender to Cruz Bay where we proceeded to the Customs and Immigration Office right there on the waterside. It was a quick and easy process, even with our token “foreigner” with her EU passport. Steffi travels so much that she has this down pat.
Off to St. Thomas where we checked into the American Yacht Harbor for the night. There are several shops, restaurants and a small but nice market right here. The ferry terminal is also just next door. From here you can catch a ride to many of the other islands and it is a much used mode of transportation. Steffi was all packed and ready for her morning flight that will take her first to San Juan then onto NYC and finally back to London. Her school vacation is over and she must report for teaching on Monday morning. We will miss her but wish her safe and successful travels back.
