Hello from St. Thomas! We arrived here two days ago after a very long night of flying, but it has all been worth it because I’ve never seen beaches quite so beautiful.
This photograph was taken from the condo we rented. I can’t tell you how much I love waking up and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. It just doesn’t get old.
One of my favorite parts of renting a condo is having a kitchen. I love eating out on vacations, but having meals at home is a nice treat, as well. It’s very relaxing and helps balance everything out a bit.
Yesterday, in search of the best beach around, we took a ferry (the tiniest I’ve seen!) to St. John, a neighboring island in the US Virgin Islands.
Everyone here has Jeeps. I have to admit that they’re super fun to drive around the islands. It really feels like exploring! Ours is the inconspicuous yellow one on the left. ;)
On the ferry ride over, the sky looked dark and gloomy, almost like it was about to open up and pour on us.
But that didn’t last…
We made our way to the truly unbelievable Trunk Bay beach. I’ve never seen water in such a brilliant shade of blue. It was warm and clear, filled with coral and fish — perfect for snorkeling.
I picked up this dress at Target just before leaving for our trip. When traveling to a beach getaway, purchase a dress with as many colors as possible. ;)
Please excuse the salty beach hair. It was windy, and the Jeep… well, you get it.
I’ll see you soon with more from our trip! It’s beautiful here. I can’t stop taking photos.
What’s your favorite beach destination? Fill me in! I’m ready to book another trip!
