St. John, USVI

As I look through the numerous pictures that I captured while on St. John I thought that I must share a few more with you.

I neglected to mention in my last post that one of the most exciting adventures of visiting St. John is the extremely hilly and winding…sharp hair-pin curved roads.  Our host Sam excelled in driving the challenging trails and throughly added to our holiday enjoyment

We lunched one day at a local favorite restaurant, Crazy Legs, which was a unique experience with delicious food and drink.  The burgers were exceptional and the Pain Killers effective.

The preponderance of large lizards on the island was not only enjoyable but nice company in the tropical paradise.  IMG_0040IMG_0046 2IMG_0094 3IMG_0210 7

St. John, Virgin Islands

Have you ever seen water so crystal clear that it appears to be dream like rather than reality?  The water surrounding St. John, Virgin Islands has that ethereal quality.  Last month we enjoyed a week’s stay with our dear friends on an island that truly can be likened to paradise.

The last three pictures were taken around the British Virgin Islands and I found the boulder that looks like a skull intriguing.  We traveled on a catamaran named the Bad Kitty to the British Virgin Islands where our friends scuba dived.  We also wadded ashore on to Jost Van Dyke, BVI to experience the home of the world renowned caribbean drink, The Pain Killer, at the Bar it was invented, The Soggy Dollar.  Although we had our mouths set for the original Pain Killer our captain admonished us to try the newest invention of the Soggy Dollar, the Nilla Killer.  So…when the captain gives an order…the crew must obey.  The Pain Killer’s ingredients are, premium dark rum, Cream of Coconut, Pineapple and orange juice, of which the proportions are secret, topped with fresh Grenadian nutmeg.  The Nilla Killer appears to be a vanilla pain killer.

The atmosphere is profoundly relaxing…or island time…as the friendly islanders say.  Truly this is a place that you can forget all of you cares and woes and where you may not want to leave.

On the next to last night of our stay at St. John we had dinner at the most wonderful restaurant with a resplendent view.

St. John is the kind of destination that gets into your thoughts and spirit…and will not let go.  It is such a different life than we enjoy on the mainland that it is compelling in it’s intricate simplicity.
