St. Croix, Day Five

On Wednesday, we headed over to the west side of the island and visited Fort Frederik, an 18th century Danish fort.  From there, we visited Rainbow Beach and had lunch at Rhythms, a popular spot on the beach.  The restaurant sits on the beach.  The location is great but the food was average at best.  Our final stop was Sandcast Beach.  We stayed here for an hour or so before heading out for horseback riding.

On the way, we stopped by the Mt. Pellier Domino Club to buy a beer for the resident pigs.  You can buy a (non-alcoholic) beer and hand feed it to the pigs.  They’ll gulp it down and spit out the can - this was a lot of fun, especially for Colt and Sadie.  From there, it was on to horseback riding with Equus.  Our ride was unfortunately cancelled on the spot - they forgot to bring the donkey along for Sadie to ride and abruptly cancelled the ride.  We rescheduled for the next morning.  Sadie was really excited to ride - otherwise I would have pushed for a refund.

After the horseback riding was cancelled, we headed back to the condo and spent the last couple hours of the day at the pool and ate sandwiches at the condo.

That evening, Colt and I joined Bush Tribe Adventures for a kayak over to the Bioluminescent Bay.  The bioluminescence is caused by tiny micro-organisms in the water that light up when disturbed, causing the water to “glow” around you as you move and swim through it. It’s difficult to explain accurately but very, very cool to experience!  There are only 17 active bioluminescent bays in the world.  I've seen two now with Vieqes, Puerto Rico being the other. Colt had a blast and ended up winning a few prizes from Bush Tribe, who was a fantastic guide for us.
