Monday morning, we woke up and headed to a different beach on the island, Lindquist beach.
Lindquist is the only totally natural beach on St. Thomas and it was super peaceful. We basically had the whole beach to ourselves. Riley read and napped, Keith snorkeled, and Paula and I drank beer and floated around the ocean on our floats. It was an awesome few hours!
Later that evening, we headed back out to Iggies to meet up with some of Italo’s work friends, grab dinner, and take in the band.
It wasn’t a super late night for us, but we had fun enjoying the breeze and hanging out.
Tuesday morning marked our last day in St. Thomas. We had time for another lazy beach day, so we headed back to Magen’s Bay, our favorite, and spent several hours sunning ourselves and doing the beach thing.
Reed and Keith picked us up from the beach and we drove up to Magen’s Point, a popular rocky spot on the very tip of the island. It was beautiful! There were huge rocks everywhere and waves crashing and I felt like we could see for miles.
After showers, we celebrated our last night in the islands by going to Virgilios, Italo’s favorite restaurant.
The restaurant was hidden in a little alleyway in Charlotte Amalie and had gorgeous paintings covering all the walls.
Our dinner was a huge feast! They brought us wine, bread, and sample plates of all their appetizer specials, which were all fantastic. Riley and I shared a Greek salad and I ordered eggplant parmesan for my entree.
I was so full by the end and only ate half my entree. I wish I’d had an extra day so I could’ve taken the leftovers home with me because they were amazing! We ordered two desserts to share as a table, including the table-side made bananas foster. I was in foodie heaven the whole time!
The next morning, we said our goodbyes to the beautiful island and got on the plane towards home.
Until next time, St. Thomas!
