We went far off the road for this picture. To St. Thomas and St. John in the US Virgin Island. My honey qualified for the trip through his work, and to my delight, it included ME. We've been there once before, and all I really remembered was the amazing underwater trail at the USVI National Park in St. John. In our short time there the first time, we never encountered the skeleton of a snorkeler, but now here it was, right beside the boat launch. After giving the whole affair some consideration, we boarded and set out to St. John.
Snorkeling in water this warm and clear is a true delight. Not so much the weather which was in the 80's and 90's and with what felt like 100% humidity but one must make sacrifices. As someone once said, "it's a dirty job but someone's gotta do it."
Trunk Bay is really an idyllic spot, and makes one appreciate the serenity of island life. While it's a bit different from our little piece of heaven in Sequim, it's not bad.
