St Thomas - Pirate Ship Shore Excursion - January 15, 2013
 
It was my intention to book the catamaran sail and snorkel we took on our prior two visits to ST - but somehow, probably a by-product of multi-tasking, we ended up on a sail that could be a pirate ship OR a catamaran. The very pleasant tour rep assured me we would have fun, so I rolled with it....

On the pirate ship, leaving harbor

Our first snorkel opportunity - I chose this picture because I liked the stars reflecting off the water, even if the faces are dark

Snorkeling back to our ship

I learn the hard way that pirate ships roll differently than catamarans, even at anchor - and that saving my camera comes at the cost of my body - straight down, so fast, that my left knee (elbow, chin and right hand - ouch) just shed the last of skin-level evidence yesterday, one month later!
