We recently went to St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands, for Jason’s 40th birthday. I tried not to duplicate pictures, so please check out Trina’s St. John post for the rest of the story. Especially for snorkeling pics, as I did not have an underwater camera. Next time.
On the twisty switchback roads to Coral Bay on the opposite side of the island, we were entertained by roadside goats doing their best to make sure the grass did not overtake the island. A little weird getting used to an American-style car with the steering wheel on the left, but driving on the left side of the road.
We spent quite a bit of time snorkeling. Next time, I will definitely have to get an underwater camera. I broke the cardinal rule of snorkeling. Don’t touch anything. I managed to get a splinter from accidentally rubbing against coral when a rogue wave hit me. I also got poked by a sea urchin with spikes over a foot long. And this is a shot of a bite on my index finger when I stuck my hand in the middle of feeding the fishes.
We had a great time, but were ready to see the kids by the end of the week.
