St. John, USVI - Day 10
Last day on St. John, and I'll be sad to leave its natural beauty and playground. The studio calls, however, to get some of these images onto paper--this place begs for watercolor. I'm sure I'll be back though...I wished upon a rainbow!

Located on the North Shore are the Annaberg (Anna’s Hill) Plantation ruins, which date back to the early 1700’s and provide a glimpse into the island’s history of sugar cane processing and rum distillation. From the Annaberg Sugar Mill, the vista overlooking Leinster Bay is spectacular!

A little further past Haulover Bay off Route 10, on the East End of the island, you’ll find Vie’s Snack Shop. This place is a Virgin Islands tradition and Vie, a local icon. After a refreshing swim and stroll on the private beach that Vie’s family owns on Hansen’s Bay, a lunch of fried chicken, conch fritters and pie is a must.
The lovely yellow birds and hummingbird flitting around us were fun to watch.

Scuba and snorkeling in St. John is amazing! We’ve spotted sea turtles, a large stingray, barracudas, an octopus and even a shark! The numerous bays offer protection for the colorful coral reefs and gorgeous tropical fish. Below is one of the more camera shy creatures on St. John, a hermit crab.

The sea beckons and the sunset lures you into a feeling of absolute serenity. I was lucky enough to capture this fleeting moment today.
St. John, USVI - Day 5
There are certain sights in St. John that you just don't see everyday... donkeys casually strolling down the side of the roads, chickens darting under the restaurant tables, and some seriously beat up 4x4s.
