Suggestions requested!

Got a fave restaurant in St. Thomas or St. John? Or some favorite snorkeling spot? Another suggestion? Please post your ideas here (click on "Post a Comment'' at the bottom of this entry) and let me know.

Soon, I'm also doing a reprise of last summer's driving trip. This time I'll stick with the state of Florida, checking out spring break spots for both families and college kids. Tell me about your faves; I'll try to stop!

Enjoyed the blog - cancun caribe riu. A new site has been launched with plenty of bargain holidays to choose from. Bookmark http://www.bargainplace.co.uk not just for bargain holidays but for flights and transport to and from airports plus travel insurance deals and holiday clothes.

As a matter of fact, yes! If you take the ferry from St. Thomas to St. John, as soon as you get off the ferry, look to your right. There's a small open bar called the High Tide Bar. It's a neat little place where the conch fritters are awesome and the Virgin Islands Pale Ale is great.

I was so excited to be able to contribute that I completely forgot to mention why I'd recommend the place. The location makes it a great spot to sit and watch the locals and the tourists board the ferry. The folks behind the bar were laid-back mainland college kids who'd visited the island, fallen in love with the place, and turned a vacation into an extended stay. The food quality was outstanding, but I'd have to say that it's more Americanized than anything else - like a Cafe Nexxt version of a waterside pub. Great ingredients, surprisingly good presentation, but not native stuff by any means. I'm fine with that - the quality and the atmosphere made up for the lack of pure local character.
