Morning, all.

My parents will be on STX this Thursday, and my Type A planning tendencies are going into overdrive. I want to ask the wealth of information that is this message board what is it the rents should not miss while here. They are very outdoorsy people so I am planning hiking to tide pools, snorkeling, etc. I know they will like the Whim because they are very into culture and just walking around C-sted and F-sted. Will there be a cruise in town? I am about to check out the Lime too, just wanted to ask y'all as well. Thanks!

Morning Shibuya,
Regarding the Cruise Ships scheduled for STX:

On Thursday - Feb. 9th - two ships are to dock at F'sted Pier (Ms. Maasdam and Serenade)
On Sunday - Feb. 12th - one ship is to dock at F'sted Pier. (Summit).

I'm sure your family will enjoy ship day. Remember to take them to visit STX's talented vendors.

On Sun. the 12th., Whim Estate will host the Starving Artist event - F'sted. Your parents will enjoy this I am sure!

To bad they will miss the Ag fair on the 18th but there is a Jump up the 14th?
Jacks and Issac's bay is a treasure

Shibuya,

ISS only:
Thurs. Feb. 9th @ 7:09 PM - a 3 min. run nearly overhead - Arriving from the WSW and Departing tp the NNE (a good viewing)

Sat. Feb. 11th @ 6:53 PM - a 3 min. run @ 20 degrees over the horizon - Arriving from the NNW and Departing to the N.
ISS will appear as a non-blinking bright light crossing silently over the night sky.
"Give 'em a wave!" 😀
Cheers!
Swan
