Time: 9.30 - 9pm EST
Location
: St. Thomas, USVI

We were simply excited about it today.... we were going underwater for the first time of our lives, saying "hello" to our little friends there...and at the same time getting a unique experience! Its known as B.O.S.S.{Breathing Observation Submersible Scooter} Underwater Adventure "The BOSS will allow you to view the marvels of the sea with no diving experience necessary - and you are the DRIVER! As you are driving underwater you will explore the brilliant undersea world and enjoy a guided tour of the stunning colorful fish and tropical reefs of the Caribbean." -tripadvisor.com We don't have our underwater photos developed yet, but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff was very friendly, helpful and FUNNY!..the experience...simply amazing! More details about it can be found on http://www.bossusvi.com/ A definite must-do when in St. Thomas!!!
TIP: A little expensive and may not be your money's worth, if you are a pro at diving..but for first-time underwater experience, its great!

After we came back to the Harbor, we decided to do some shopping, and so we ventured out to the Havensight mall- known for its duty free, sales tax free electronics and other stuff. We did find some pretty interesting things, but the travelbug that I am, I prefer getting souvenirs and vacation reminders like picture postcards, etc. rather than mall-type things. And I was pleased to find such stores in this mall too..!

Then we headed to Bolongo Bay Resort for our Sunset sail on the 'Heavenly Days'- a 53' Catamaran. The Captain and his crew were genuinely pleased to have us all on board, and they were well stocked with the finger food & alcohol variety and cool music. We began the early celebration of our 1st Wedding Anniversary with champagne and the boys kept it coming! We cruised smoothly through the beautiful Charlotte Amalie Harbor, the historical Hassel Island, and around Water Island. We got to see a cloudy sunset and some other fantastic privately-owned yachts bobbing around the Harbor. By the time we got back, we were so full of the sea air, great views and alcohol! We HAD to call it a day!!!
