Amanda and I spent nearly a week earlier this month with my family down in St. John of the US Virgin Islands. It was a tremendous trip, we had a wonderful time and really enjoyed a relaxing trip to the Caribbean. I wasn’t sure how we would handle being that long away from our little girl, but it really wasn’t a problem knowing she was in good hands with Amanda’s parents. We ate and drank well, we swam, snorkeled, hiked, and really just got reacquainted with an island that my family has been to a few times now. Some of the highlights included the sunsets on the deck, the hike out to Rams Head, snorkeling with the sea turtles at Maho Bay and tarpon at Francis Bay, and the sunset sail on Survivan. I packed a couple fly rods, but never felt the urge to break them out and dedicate time to fishing – I was too busy enjoying not-fishing, if that makes any sense.
