Got up so early this morning to catch our 8 am flight out of DCA. No problems until we land at ATL, when we sit on the tarmac for 30 minutes while we are caught in some sort of traffic jam and can't get to our gate. The guy in the row in front of us is panicking because he's got a short layover on the way to Hawaii, and he's scared he's going to miss his plane. Once we get off the plane, we look for a place to eat in the airport before we catch our almost 4-hour flight to St. Thomas. Our flight to St. Thomas was uneventful, and we even land 30 minutes early! Unfortunately, there is a heavy drizzle that continues into the evening. On the plus side, our bed and breakfast, At Home in the Tropics
, is quite lovely, and is located right in the heart of St. Thomas's main city, Charlotte Amelie. Located halfway up Blackbeard's Hill, we have a great view of the harbor. We walk down several, several steps to get some dinner, and discover 1) many restaurants are closed on Sunday evenings and 2) Charlotte Amelie is disturbingly quiet. We had heard from several sources that there are often reports of muggings at night, so we were especially vigilant as we walked through the empty streets. We ended up having a mediocre meal at one of the few establishments that was open, The Green House
. It was a very casual restaurant and bar that was nothing special, but we were grateful to find a restaurant open within walking distance. We spent the rest of the evening relaxing on our B & B's open-air veranda.
