St. John

In December the 4 girls made sure we had one final day off together so that we could go to St. John for the day.  It was such a fun day!  We took the car ferry over (which was an experience all by itself!) then had fun driving around the island. 

When we were trying to find our way around we happened upon a few donkeys just standing on the road.  We had to stop and it was so fun to pet them and feed them and to just enjoy them! 

After that we went to Salt Bay for a little while and the best part of that was on the drive over we actually saw waves!  (Because there are so many islands in the Carribean you never really see full blown waves the way you do in California or elsewhere.)  After our hike (just over a mile) to and from Salt Bay we did a little shopping on the island. 

After that we headed over to the other side of the island to hit up Cinnamon Bay.  This is the prettiest beach I have ever been too!  We were able to go to little Cinnamon once before with Kacey and Gabe, but this time we were on the bigger stretch of beach.  Cinnamon bay is so pretty and if you ever go to the Virgin Islands you have to go there! 

After Cinnamon we stopped and took a few pictures of Trunk Bay then headed over to Hawks Nest.  It was so fun to just be with the other girls on a day that was all about doing whatever we wanted and having a fun day of playing tourist!  On the ferry ride back to St. Thomas the sunset was amazing and it hit me just how much I would miss this place.
