Playing Skip-Bo at the Denver airport. This was the only game I won during our trip.
Great views of little islands just before landing.
We made it!
A taxi ride took us to Red Hook where the ferry dock is. Saw several rainbows on the drive.
Taking the ferry over to St. John.
22 hours after leaving our house for the airport we set foot onto St. John, and the island did not disappoint!
The walk down to our cottage.
Our home for the next week.
The cottage doesn't have a tv, it has a deck with much better programs.

Sarah enjoys the views
Bananaquit's love sugar! We would feed them a spoonful every morning.
The outdoor shower was a really neat feature.
breakfast at Miss Lucy's
We certainly got our moneys worth out of this 4wd jeep rental. Just remember to drive on the left!
goats on the outskirts of town
Just up the hill from the cottage is the remains of Fort Frederiksvaern, built in the 1720's.
A view of Trunk Bay.
Taking a evening walk along the beach.
A sea urchin washed up on the beach. You don't wanna step on these guys in the water.
Another morning at the cottage.
Feeding only the brave banaquits.
Our outdoor kitchen sink with the villa and Catherine's home (the owner) above.
Trunk Bay - A popular beach with a trail of underwater signs that guide you through the coral reef. The guy on the paddle board is a lifeguard.
The water is clear and warm and the snorkeling is amazing.
having lunch at House of Blues.
We rented kayaks at Maho Bay Campground and then paddled out to Whistling Cay (pronounced key).
