As my short travel log continues, our third port of call was St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. It was our favorite day on the trip. We took an excursion to Sapphire Beach on the northeast side of the island, and it made our day. The views were picturesque and postcard perfect. The sky was big, the sand cool and the water the most luscious aqua-marine. We found a palm tree, got our complimentary beach loungers and drinks and were close to paradise, for sure. I had to chuckle though. Nigel, our guide at the beach from Wales, said the water was 78°, and that was quite cool. I asked him if he had ever been swimming in Maine in July. He stated no, and I just had to smile!
