I looked up the ports, but was not able to find the exact port in St. Thomas. Maybe your travel agent or calling HAL would get you the info.

Just got our room assignment, 3 more days until we fly out.

Wow, Ken, you guys have it all going on with the excursion planning. I have zero planned. That could be a good thing or a bad thing! The history of SJ on foot sounds interesting. Who knows, I'm going to wing it. Definitely need to decompress from a stressful few months at work. See you all soon! One more day (and it's a throwaway, going to a seminar in Seattle all day) then off to FLL first thing Friday. Safe travels to everyone!!

Hope you had a good flight, we got in at 9am Eastern and was able to get into the hotel early. Relaxing this evening and may rent a car tomorrow to look around. Going to have dinner in the hotel restaurant tonight.

It is over cast, but so much warmer then home.

Flight was pretty good. Walking to the mall now. The hop on, hop off trolley might be in order.
