DOCKED ATCROWN BAY MARINA, ST THOMAS, USVI
Before making Robert’s final trip back to St. Thomas we took a hike around the Lameshur Bay areas and were able to look back and see both Great Lameshur Bay and Little Lameshur Bay connected by Yawzi Point. We found the lovely, rocky Europa bay and spent a few minutes enjoying the sights and sounds before heading back.

So it’s back to St. Thomas for Robert’s flight back to the mainland tomorrow morning. This time we thought we would try Crown Bay, a little closer to the airport. It was a lovely marina and they were willing to give us the night at the weekly rate if we prepaid for that night and the seven days Quest will be here while Dan has to work in Florida. Unfortunately, the adjacent freight dock was busy all night long, first offloading the high stacks of containers then stacking on the new ones to be shipped out. A tad bit noisy!!

There is a very nice Gourmet Gallery for provisioning, a laundry facility, a boat chandlery, a hair salon and even a dog groomer right here in the marina. We will only be here for one night now but I’m sure I will explore the surrounding areas when I return.
