Very early on Friday morning, my wife and I are flying to the US Virgin Islands. Friends of ours are getting married and they were wonderful enough to invite us to join them. Since we never had the chance to take a honeymoon when we got married almost two years ago, we're taking this opportunity and will not be back until Wednesday.
The picture of the pool is from the Westin Resort on St. John, where we'll be staying. The resort looks out over Cruz Bay and as you can see, the water is just the most incredible mix of blues and greens imaginable. While I've never been to the Virgin Islands, I have done a bit of scuba diving in the Caribbean so I can't wait to see the crystal clear water and all the tropical fish and corals.
The other photo is of Trunk Bay, one of the many coves and bays that surround the island. One of the best things about St. John, as opposed to St. Thomas, the larger island, is that about 75% of the island is designated as National Forest. So much of it is relatively untouched rain forest. I will have my digital camera and an extra SD Smart Card, so I will bring back lots of pictures which I promise to share with you all.
I doubt I'll have any opportunity to blog while I'm away what with the beaches and the rain forest and...ah... the rum! So be good, leave lots of comments about how jealous you all are, and I'll see you when I get back!
