|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.
