We cleared in from the BVI to wonderful, friendly, efficient and polite Customs and Immigration officials in the good old USVI. There must be an international protocol on how to greet law-abiding folks as they try to legally cross a border.
We spent a couple of days in Francis Bay on the north side of St. John and then after a rolly night with bad internet (bad combination) we gave up the internet and spent two quiet nights on the south of the island in Lameshur Bay. It is very popular during the day for snorkellers but very quiet and private in the evenings. Pam is pretty sure there was a 6 or 7 foot beast parked under the boat. We took a quick peak but couldn't locate him. We have really enjoyed the south side of St. John, escaping from the northern swell.

There were 4 other cruise ships in town today - a good day not to be in town with thousands of tourists searching for treasure.
