I read somewhere that St John is likened to a dazzling emerald in a setting of sparkling sapphire water. That is closer to describing the island than I ever could.
The only way to get to St. John is by boat, either ferry or yacht.
We came over on a ferry from the British Virgin Islands for a day trip.
At Cruz Bay, the main town on St John, friends and taxi drivers are waiting, clogging the exit from the pier. Ferry boat arrivals are the big event of the day here.
We had several offers of a tour by the taxi drivers. Finally we agreed to go with one on a two hour around the island tour. It was open air seating in the back of his tourist type truck. The padded seats were on each side and there was a canopy overhead. We stopped for a photo shot of one beautiful bay after the other on the north coast plus the ruins of Annaberg sugar plantation.
Everything was wonderful until it started to rain very very hard. At that time we chose to be dropped of at the shops so we could spend some time looking around for trinkets.
