St. John U.S.V.I. February 2014

Get off the ferry from Red Hook, St. Thomas. U.S.V.I., onto the Island of St. John and experience a day of sight-seeing and pleasure. It is an awesome place to ride the bus (across the Island for !.00) and enjoy a walk through town and a eats.  The ferry service runs hourly from Red Hook, St. Thomas and costs $7.00)  First thing I saw when getting off the ferry was a booth with two women handing out rum samples. Needless to say, I took advantage of their kindness.
This bus really doesn't look like much! But what do we expect for one dollar U.S. money?
But it is a fun and great way to see the magnificent countryside. The beautiful mountain sides were such a pleasure. We rode across the Island to Salt Pond then paid another dollar and rode back again, after which we enjoyed the sights of Cruz Bay.
Some 60% of the Island is the protected Virgin Islands National Park.
The Island is not quite 20-square-miles and less than 5,000 population.
One paved road going across the mountains.
Where to now?
Love seeing the American Flag flying high over Cruz Bay.
