Trunk Bay Tranquility

Tagged: , , , , , ,

It probably goes without saying that a visit to Trunk Bay should be on any visitor’s to do list when planning a trip to the island of St. John in the US Virgin Islands. With hills, palm trees and other foliage that seem to be slowly creeping closer and closer to the shoreline in an attempt to crowd out the humans, it’s a world away from the hustle and bustle of St. Thomas. If you do end up on its white sand beach, find a...

An Udder Delite – Discovering Boozy Milkshakes on the Path to Magens Bay

Tagged: , , , , , , ,

While Magens Bay was our destination of choice one afternoon during our St. Thomas vacation, it had been brought to our attention by a couple of people that we had to stop by Udder Delite because, well, … boozy milkshakes. Tying my propensity for posting pics of cocktails and writing about rum and beach bars to my supposed appreciation of products not normally associated with booze, we were encouraged, nigh, implored to check this...

St. Thomas, USVI First Impressions

Tagged: , , , , ,

After almost 72 hours on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, my first impression is a positive one. Sure, there are a lot of Americans here but I’ve never considered that a bad thing. Roles typically played by locals in the island’s story are now filled by a lot of expats and trying to wade through Long Island accents instead of the island’s dialect still takes a bit of concentration. So far, I’d call it a...

Beach Bar Bums Focus – Getting To Know Tropical Day Sails

Our recently completed “Drinks at the Beach” photo contest wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our prize sponsors, specifically Tropical Day Sails (TDS), a Caribbean charter day sail company out of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. Their offer of a full day private charter was by far the largest of the prizes and the work they put into convincing others to donate prizes was paramount to the success of the...

St. Thomas/Virgin Islands or Anguilla/St. Martin/Maarten? It’s Finally Final!

Tagged: , , , ,

It’s a question I hated to have to answer – the beaches of St. Thomas/Virgin Islands or Anguilla/St. Martin/Maarten? A response had to be formulated, however, since the only other option was going nowhere this winter. The decision wasn’t easy, as one can only imagine, since both destinations had many things going in their favor that I really don’t need to get into here. At the end of the day, though, it came down to one thing that was...
