USVI: Kristen Visits St. Thomas

Before I even left for St. Thomas a friend from home, Kristen, had booked her flight to visit. I was looking forward to this week before I even arrived. I took a week off of work and we rented a car to explore. 

1. The day Kristen arrived we went swimming at Bolongo Bay before heading to ladies night in Red Hook:

4. We went to watch a basketball game at Paradise Jam with pizza at Pie Whole after (Paradise Jam is a tournament where US universities come down to St. Thomas for two weeks of basketball):

5. We took the car ferry over to St. John to camp at Cinnamon Bay and explored the island with a stop at Hawksnest beach:

USVI: Dinner Cruise


Last Tuesday Kerri and I went on a dinner cruise with New Horizons out of Sapphire Beach Marina over to Christmas Cove, St John. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was amazing.
