Take a Hike

Ok, I swear this is the last St. John dedicated post. Any day that begins with blueberry banana pancakes is bound to be a blast. These were absolutely delicious, I'm still dreaming about them.


We dropped the hubby off for a fly fishing charter and the rest of us took a hike to Solomon's beach Wednesday. Have you ever wanted a beach where you could do just about anything and no one is there to see you? That's how this little gem was. We saw a total of 6 people the four hours there.





Sun Bum chapstick was in all the stores down there and for good reason. I don't know of any other brand that has 30SPF and tastes delicious too! And I have yet to find a coconut water brand that compares to the real thing.

The rest of our week was spent swimming with turtles, rays, and admiring the local animals. I took way too many pictures, but I couldn't help myself.




Just chatting on the shell-phone, some calls are too important not to take. 



Remember that questionable parking job I told you about? Here is a pic from later in the week.





To say we enjoyed our time in the islands is an understatement. I can't wait to return (we may or may not have discussed investing in a sailboat eventually). I would highly recommend a trip down there, but beware that many of the "transplants/locals" in Cruz Bay are rather rude. The hospitality isn't nearly as great as in Harbour Island, Bahamas, but the views and beaches are unparalleled. Most of the people in Coral Bay were very friendly. It's a 20-30 minute drive through the mountains, but it was worth it for a great food and people. You also get a bit of a roller coaster ride on the drive.
