We landed just 20 minutes after take off and then took a taxi ride to Red Hook. It was fun to see the downtown area and a little of the famous VI. At the ferry station, we relaxed and enjoyed people watching while the skies opened and poured lots of rain.

Day 2 dawned and the family spent the day hiking, snorkeling and hanging around camp. A dinner of spaghetti and an evening of star gazing was on the agenda. Cinnamon Bay campground is included in the VI National Park so a park ranger gave a great presentation and we got to see Jupiter and 4 of her moons through a telescope. We also got to see 2 shooting stars cross paths. Another spectacular day. More to follow.
