How are you doing? I'm hoping that you are having a great summer! We've been away on vacation to the Virgin Islands and just got home late last night. I did the usual unpacking, laundry, mail, etc. I sat down this evening and went through tons of photos. So, I hope I don't bore you with photo overload. :-) But, I do want to share with you the beauty of the island of St. Thomas. So, here we go....
There was a lot of walking at the resort. We walked down many steps to get to the beach and to our favorite restaurant Coco Joe's. They had the best nachos! Also, we enjoyed delicious Caribbean salad with shrimp and homemade dressing...yum!
While walking down the many steps, we met some friends along the way...lol! I wanted to reach out my hand to pretend I was petting the little darlings for the camera, but they quickly came up to me thinking I had some food. Believe me, I did not feed my friends! lol Yes, I can still hear my DH laughing about this one!:-)
This is the little ferry boat that we took across the bay to eat lunch and shop. The food was just so delicious! My husband's favorite was chicken roti at this place called Jen's.
The architecture is gorgeous with beautiful brick buildings. Many of the stores consisted of hand crafts, jewelry, perfume, tobacco, and liquor, especially rum. All the shops are duty free.
We took our passports and headed off on a boat to British Virgin Islands one day. I thank my sweet friend, Sue, for giving us great tips for our vacation in paradise! Her tip to visit the BVI was the highlight of our vacation! The BVI are a must see when vacationing in the Caribbean! The water is so amazing.......
The rock formations are called The Baths on the island of Virgin Gorda. It was a fun day of hiking, snorkeling and swimming!

We also went to the island of Jost Van Dyke. I just could not believe the beauty of water! So crystal clear with a gorgeous color of aqua! And, it is home of the famous Soggy Dollar Bar, home of the original Painkiller drink. We had one of these drinks and enjoyed the breathtaking view!
On our last day of vacation, we ate breakfast at Coco Joe's. There was a quick shower and we noted a lovely rainbow in the sky. We thought what a perfect ending to our vacation in paradise!
If you've made it this far, thank you so much for viewing our photos of our vacation! Take care, hugs!
