Day 7 in Southern Caribbean, Dec 13 – Secret Bay, St Thomas
南加勒比第七天,12月13日,圣托马斯

  A St Thomas day, a Caribbean Saturday
  An island of getaway, a place to stay

  Taking cruise for someone sounded a little regret because even if it could visit more places but one might prefer seeing more on a particular island. However, flying to an island and staying for a week would not only cost more but also have a chance to be bored quickly when it stopping you from going to adventure on other lands. This morning on St Thomas, the similar question was bothering me to make a decision: which beach should we go?
  After we got off the boat, it took us a while to find the Information (because there was no sign and it was at another door). I waited for about fifteen minutes. The lady suggested a small beach called Secret Bay to everyone who asked about the best place to go. I had chosen a popular beach last night. But this “Secret Bay” convinced me, although later I found out that I was probably the only one listen to the lady from the group of people in the queue.

  圣托马斯是一个非常受欢迎的岛,所有去加勒比的邮轮,无论东西南航线,都会在这个岛上停留一天。这个岛只有32平方英里,人口五万六。

  凌晨,锲而不舍的不高兴又爬起来了。看来不和朝霞见个面,今天就不算度假。可太阳也躲在港口的群山背后睡着懒觉,让一轮明月在红色的云彩上高悬。记得我们问度假村的人能不能从海边看见日出,他们竟然说从没注意过。就好像西雅图的旭日和夕阳每天按时报到,也没见不高兴什么时候待见过。现在拿“外国的月亮”当个宝似的写在一片一片的内存里。
  八点多钟下了船,看到岸上的商店比其他岛的都多。据说这里什么店都有,没必要去城里。事先做了功课,知道这个岛上有好几处好玩的沙滩。结果还是听从信息中心的大妈介绍,前往一个在地图上没有标识、叫“秘湾”的隐秘海滩。坐旅游车每人一律十元,不管多远。还是一样的山路,一样的颠簸。刚开始不高兴还打算拿着相机捕捉沿路的风景,后来晃得太厉害了,还得我用手牢牢地抓住他,免得他提前就下车了。
  十几二十分钟的车程,旅游车停在一个不起眼的度假村旁边。满车的人只有我们四个人在这里下了车。车上其他的游客和我们挥手告别,好像悲怜我们被抛弃在一个孤岛上。穿过度假村的前门和一个室外酒吧,就看见了绿树影子后的一片海湾,狭窄而退缩在远处外海的边缘。已经九点钟了,太阳还隐身在阴云家的客厅里,迟迟不肯出来。虽然有几个人在岸边游泳,这样一个度假村的后院,让人不禁疑惑起来。是不是太隐秘了,连一丁点儿的加勒比的风情都藏起来了?

  沿着岸走出一段路,也没见到什么特别的。正开始懊悔是否选错了地方,太阳终于从云雾中钻了出来。方才平静的海湾,顿时像灯光照射下的蓝宝石,散发出内心的本色。从天边连着白云的湛蓝,海水一层深一层浅地演绎不同的色调,把浪花卷向岸边绿色的水藻,最终消失在金黄色的沙滩上。阳光借着水影,不停地在沙石间起舞,挑逗着白浪,吸引着鱼儿,也邀请着游人,在她的怀抱里嬉戏。

  面对清澈见底的海水,我没有什么奢想了,只求在这碧海蓝天下睡上片刻。

  休息的时候,终于看到这里有名的动物——蜥蜴,懒洋洋地爬到游客的躺椅边,吸引了好多相机。一个胖大嫂还拨了橘子喂它。我们也吃了些零食,准备再回到水里。

  这次是老爸执掌相机,为的就是让没头脑和不高兴一起携手漂游。一种“随波逐流”的惬意心情,只有整个人完全放松地伸展开来,倾听海浪推动的催眠时,才能让那片时间凝止的感觉,深深地停留在迷醉的心底。

  当阳光直射时,水底的轮廓更清晰了。从岸边深入几米,就能看见成群的鱼儿。本来以为防水相机用不上了,这下可好,戴上潜水镜,再次跳入大海。

  今天仅照片就拍了快四百张,时间也过的差不多了。我们收拾东西,走上街叫了辆出租车。司机是个老人,车里收拾得挺干净,人也挺好的,还时不时地放慢车速让不高兴瞄准路边的景色。

  真的是累了,回到船舱就睡了。越是这种时候,不高兴越来精神,整理完了照片,背着两架相机,又跑到船尾去等夕阳了。天色云彩都很争气,晚霞把在船上的最后一晚染得金黄。

  六点钟,到餐厅外一看菜单,是美国式的。没意思,懒得再去餐厅吃饭,还是去十五楼的“不菲”餐厅吧。今夜是全素(除了牛油果上的一点海鲜),更意外地尝到了最多最甜最好吃的木瓜。

  回到房间后把托运的行李箱整理好,放到门口好等搬运工拿走。这个假期就这样接近了尾声。
