|Our rental for the week|
Our first full day exploring the island. We hopped into our ride and mapped out a route for the morning. The island is not very big and most of it is a National Park which was created by land donated by Laurance Rockefeller in 1956. The area of the park encompasses about 60% of the island. So, exploring was rather easy as there was really only one road through the park and out.
The weather was co-operating at last and we were glad to see the last of the rain and cloudy skies - lingering systems from Irene. We stopped and took some great scenic shots while en route. The island is verdant and tropical. We decided to use this day as a day to get some food, beverages and to scope out which beaches we wanted to return to. We decided to return to Cinnamon Bay and Trunk Bay as these two beaches seemed the most appealing.
We had lunch in Cruz Bay on the way back and enjoyed some truly delicious conch fritters at High Tide restaurant - one of my favourite island snacks.
