St Thomas Day 10, Part 2

Row, row, row your boat?

Our tour was to end at 4:30pm and we were now 1 hour late getting back. I mean he does wear a shirt that promotes "I'm on Island time" . The lady at the front desk was loading our pictures and getting ready to show them to us. I told her "I'm going to buy them. I don't really need to see all of them". I had faith in Swish. I knew he got some good pictures and from seeing them on the screen, I was satisfied enough with just looking at a few. I mean he has an Olympus Tough camera...what could go wrong right? The amount they charged was $35! I thought that was an excellent deal and what other places should be charging as well (unlike SeaTrek's outrageous amount for hardly any pictures). They end up texting the pictures to you, which I thought was weird and I never had anyone do that before. But, eventually I figured it out once I got home to download them. Also included in this package of pictures, they send you a "bonus" file that has different folders (Aquatic Creatures: Fish, Invertebrates, land, plants, reptiles, scenic view.) It has 1148 total pictures in the bonus package. We ended up with 158 photos of JUST US! That's after I went and deleted the pictures of the other family that was with us. Swish is like me...a happy snapper! I like that.

We were all sitting around chitchatting and having a good time. We praised the great job Swish had done with us. He was the best! If you ever go to St Thomas and do this tour...make sure you get SWISH!

He will be the one with his name on his crocs :D

We had to have some pictures of our day with him so he suggested that we go down to the dock.

Sakari wanted a picture by herself. She said today was the best day of the vacation!

The girls wanted to do the Limbo under this branch...that's when Swish probably realized we were going to be the goofy ones on this trip.

Here's the video I took of our wonderful day kayaing with Swish

So Swish managed to capture some good pictures and it was time to go because it was already 6pm. By now it was raining and we had no idea until we walked out from under the roof there. It kinda caught me by surprise but thank goodness our excursion was over with and we were wet anyhow.

On the way home, I mentioned what were we going to eat for dinner. We were coming up on Red Hook and I mentioned how good the subs were we had and well...why not!

We pulled into the parking lot and the hubby ran in. I found this sign to be funny "Violators will be towed or BOOTED" LOL

On the way home, we passed by Sapphire

It looked like there was a spectacular sunset on the other side of the island.

We made it home and I told the girls to grab everything from the vehicle because I needed to put it all back in the house and get it put away. Sakari is a multi-tasker...which means as much as she can grab all at once type of girl. Every time she would turn toward me, she would smack Kiara with a noodle. It became a game. LOL

The hubby and I headed out on the deck to have our dinner. Yummy!

Not a bad backdrop for our last dinner here.

I have no idea what Kiera was doing and neither did she. Praying to the laundry gods, so excited over the best day ever, I just wanna shower, I'm going to miss this floor...who knows.

It was time to gather all of our laundry and head to the washer area and do laundry. I managed to have 3 loads to do and I was packing in between each load. I was done with laundry by 8:30pm. Whew!

We did have a friend inside the laundry area that completely caught me off guard when I walked in and it moved.

It was quite foggy out after the rain tonight and Sakari thought it looked really cool so I needed to take a picture.

Once we were done packing, double checking, triple checking, we put the luggage by the door making sure to leave out everything we would need in the morning and it was time to lay down.

UP NEXT...our last day in St Thomas and a night in Orlando
