Sunday from St Croix, USVI

Yesterday we walked up to the Pueblo supermarket which is in the Golden Rock Shopping Center near Christiansted (St. Croix, USVI). The bus came just as we decided to walk back to the dinghy so we took advantage of that. Blockbuster had me in their computer and they gave me a new membership card with a barcode, but unfortunately it didn't show my $7 credit from the St Thomas store.

Haven't found much in the way of information concerning Christiansted, St Croix, so I hope to find out some things and share it with you here... such as where is the closest laundramat, vet, food shopping, marine store, Radio Shack, K-Mart, how to get around with public transportation, where to get fuel and water, filling propane tank, where to check in, etc.

Last night was the Christmas Lights Boat Parade. There must have been at least 20 boats participating, plus there was a flyover by the Seaborne planes. It was neat to have them take part in the community event. They seemed to enjoy it, too.

Today's frustration was using the printer. We don't print very often, but I thought the ink would still be OK as we just bought this HP printer about 6 months ago.  Changing the ink ($38) did the trick, and hopefully it will still be viable next time we need to print something.

So It Goes...
