St. Croix trip

Just got back from our St. Croix trip with Sharon and Buddy.

The first day was mostly travel - view from our villa - private pool and view of the ocean in the distance.

Relaxing in the evening...

View driving from our parking space.

 Beautiful flowers everywhere.

No Caribbean vacation is complete without chicken photos - these were pecking around at our feet at a restaurant.

Included this photo for my sis - Tofurky sandwich - we marinated onions overnite with balsamic vinegar.  Very yummy!!

One day, we took a long hike that I had read about - it was about 2 miles one way to some "tide pool".  The trail meandered thru mostly wooded and hilly terrain.  View from the trail.

Termite nests on the trees were common.

Finally made it down to the tide pools.  Very pretty and calm.

View towards the ocean from inside the tide pool.

It was actually pretty adventuresome walking over the sharp rocks to get inside the tide pools.

In heavy seas, the ocean waves actually  spray over the rocks you see here.  Luckily, the ocean was fairly calm.

View walking back on the trail.

 Different day, different beach....

View from a restaurant/resort where we had a nice lunch.

Different day, different beach!!

We did some snorkeling - some of it was pretty bland....but this one was actually pretty colorful.
It's at the Frederiksted pier.

Sharon and I after a nice snorkel.

A different beach, a different chicken!

Lunch on Valentines Day!

And before we knew it, it was time to go home...

Enjoyed it!!
