St. John, USVI

We've returned from our cruise and it was great.  Truly, one of the best cruises ever.  One thing that made it so special was our first port: St. Thomas.

Boats in the harbor at Charlotte-Amelie, St. Thomas, USVI.

We debated staying on St. Thomas since we were the only ship in port that day.  But....St. John was too close to resist the ferry over.

Cruz Bay, above, was just as we remembered - perfectly idyllic.  We hopped in a taxi and headed to our favorite beach on St. John, Cinnamon Bay.

Really, this is the best beach I've ever been to.  Crystal clear water, perfect sand...  It's magical.  I loved the time we spent there.

After a few hours, we headed back to Cruz Bay to visit some of our favorite places in town, including our favorite bar.  There, we got a small pizza, which we had twice on our  honeymoon, and bushwackers - basically an alcoholic Frosty.  Sooooo good!  And the view of Cruz Bay isn't bad either.

I'll try not to overwhelm you with posts of the trip.  But I'd like to share with you a few more places in the coming days.
