I don't like scuba diving or snorkeling. Going there to gather research for my third book. What are some interesting things I should see in ST Thomas or the neighboring Islands? Are their any good forts other than Grey Beards Castle?

Thanks

Duffys Love shack in Red Hook
http://www.duffysloveshack.com/prodopenstt.htm

My Favorite place.

Charlotte Amalie, visit that,

Take the ferry over to St Johns, have lunch right at the docks there. Then hail a cab, and go to trunk bay, rent some snorkel gear(dont care if you dont do it, its a MUST)


Going to ST Thomas (USVI) Trunk-bay
This is Trunk Bay, the cabbie will take you right to the beach, where you can rent gear, and theres a bar too, theres also hammocks to relax.

Also, where are you staying in St Thomas, may I suggest Secret Harbor, it is top notch.

There is also a reef right off the beach, pretty cool, turtles and sting rays swam right by us.

I could have gotten (2) for %2,500. I think it's because I'm going after school starts and before the weather turns cold up north, plus it's still the tail end of Hurricane season. The real reason I picked that date is because the Vikings have a bye week lol

While I didn't notice any major announcement and there wasn't an ESPN version of "The 2nd Biggest Decision"...

I think I know which book cover has been selected. (And the correct one, IMO)

Yepper, you are correct. I haven't announced it yet because I'm waiting on the final version to post. We're removing the what I refer to as "Crotch Cleavage" and the colors will be richer. I also took the workout girl from one of them (the one with the tape on her hands) and made her bigger plus softened the background from black to brown. She looks smoking hot! There is another frontal picture of her as well. There is more work to do on it but I think it will turn out to be the cover for the sequel "Tangled Web"
