    Right in town, The Galleon House on Government Hill, is part of my history. It was where I vaca’ed in the early ‘70s, when St. Thomas was it! It is where I landed when an aborted sailing gig as a sea-cook, left me stranded on dry land. I arrived on the terrace without funds and told the owners, Marty and Annie, that if they would take me in, I’d put on the apron and wait tables or be a cooker. They did…I did. I went on to live in the U.S.V.I. and B.V.I. for six years. Times change and a fire took the restaurant and piano bar and more. In the ‘80s the balcony-view rooms were built into the hillside and they are the best option. The “originals” are simple but ask for one with a handsome new bathroom. An interior room, that sleeps three and has a large closet and bath’, suits many travelers. The two, inexpensive double rooms that share a bath, always fill up.
    And the best is that the new owners, Trisch and Chris, are hip, fun, caring and into upgrading their property.
