St Thomas 2020

Day 12: Thursday, July 30

Our last full day in St Thomas

As far as we could tell, most of the Tropical Storm had passed us by this morning. There were still some showers going on with intermittent sun here and there, but it would be a gloomy day off and on.

I was up at the crack of dawn again and watching the sun rise over the clouds. Every morning I would have friends (other than Mr Eerka) and this time they brought family members.

By 6:30am, it looked as if the sun just might bring a nicer day than what we had yesterday. Now had we came here on our own, I would have immediately went inside and started packing for a beach day to jam in before we left this beautiful island the following day. However, I knew that Kendra and family were "beached out" (is there really such a thing???) and it just probably wasn't going to happen today.

There was a guy that showed up on the beach and started doing some yoga/meditation. He would hold his position for a VERY long time without moving. Then assume another position. He was out there standing by the water for hours. Maybe I should have joined him to clear my mind and prepare myself for our last day of packing while I uncontrollably sobbed because I never wanted to leave.

The fam was up by 8 and it was time for some breakfast. I was still trying to figure out how we were going to eat up all of this food we still had here, but I wanted to be able to do it without gaining the extra 10 pounds!. We were just getting a hodge-podge mixture of whatever I could come up with.

After breakfast, Sakari and Kam decided to go down and give the iguana's some apples we had left that we weren't going to be able to eat before leaving. It didn't take long for them all to come running.
