St. John, US Virgin Islands


My idea of paradise…

Driving on the left and sharing the road with donkeys, goats, iguanas, and an occasional bull.  


Reading on a balcony with roosters crowing below.

Admiring tropical flowers.


Relaxing in the shade of a sea grape tree with the ocean breeze in my face, captivated by the ocean’s beauty.

Snorkeling, lots of snorkeling.

Watching sea turtles eat and purple sea fans sway with the ocean currents.


Searching for colorful sea glass and the perfect round stone.

Hiking to beautiful places.
 

Exploring sugar plantation ruins.

Spending time with my family.

Coming home after a safe and fun trip.



I have missed being here in my little creative space.  I forgot how much I love playing with photographs on my computer, although iphone apps are a great substitute when I don’t have a computer close by. 

Today I am sharing some of my vacation finds with Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds, my first image is textured with kk_0603 and the boat image is textured with kk_totalgrunge.

I hope you are savoring the last days of summer.  Summer always ends too soon…  

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
Have a great weekend!!

  2. Nothing like that water and oh my that water is stunning. I just went to Oregon and Washington and it took me 2 weeks of blogging to get through all of the images, I hope to see more.
