St. Croix, Day Seven & Eight

2016.06.03 0688.buckisland

On Friday, we joined BlackBeard Adventures for their Buck Island Snorkel Excursion.  This was one of the highlights of our 2008 trip and something we definitely wanted to do again with the kids.  Turtle Beach on Buck Island is one of the world’s best.  

After the Buck Island trip, we had burgers at Shupes on the Boardwalk (yum!) before heading over to check out Fort Christensvaern.  After our exploring was complete, we headed back to the condo for some pool time.  We’d have our last dinner on the island at Rowdy Joe’s.  I had the fish tacos; Susan had the cubano sandwich.  Both were delicious.

Saturday was our final day on the island.  We about half a day to wrap things up.  We got a final dip in the pool before heading over to the Cruzan Rum Distillery and then maybe the best deli sandwich I’ve ever had at Turtle’s Deli.

All in all, another great Stabler vacation.  The weather was a bit more cloudy and overcast than usual, which was probably good for sunburn’s sake.  I think we’ve seen and done everything St. Croix has to offer now, so I’m not sure if we’ll be back, but if we’re close Buck Island will always be worth a stop.  

Our next family vacation will be back to the beaches of 30A.  Can’t Wait!
