St. Croix Day 4: Cruzan and Conch

With nothing booked for the day, we slept in a bit. I woke up feeling shaky and unsteady and definitely feeling that snorkeling at the pier would be a bad idea. It was disappointing as the snorkeling there is supposed to be really good and I would have had a high chance of seeing octopus and seahorses. But I didn't think my stomach could take the motion of the ocean so I texted guy with thumbs to let him know I couldn't make it.

Instead we headed to the Cruzan rum distillery for a tour and some cocktails. Tours ran every 30 minutes so we had no problem tagging along on the next available one.

Afterwards, they made us two cocktails each of our choice. Cruzan makes so many flavors of rum so there were a ton of combinations to choose from and they were STRONG.

At this point, we decide that eating is probably a good idea so we drive over to the waterfront in Christiansted for some lunch at Rum Runner's.

Conch fritters, my favorite.

Since we were in Christiansted, we spent a couple of hours shopping before heading back to the condo. Around what would have been sunset time if not for the clouds, we went down to the beach at our condo and relaxed with some private music and drinks.

It started to rain but we didn't care. We danced in it on the beach and once it got dark, we headed in for the night.
