St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands

Have you ever been caught up in a dream? You walk around thinking "This is unbelieveable, this can't be real!"
That was my trip to St. Thomas this past week.
Pastel buildings and homes, lush tropical foliage, the islanders speaking with that singsong lilt, warm and sunny every day.
The only decisions I faced were "where shall I eat?" and "which rum drink should I have?"
I probably appreciated this so much more since I live the typical American life, rushing here and there, always pushing myself to accomplish more.
So, this entire little 4 day mini-vacation with my daughter (she of the terrible attitude just prior to this trip) was a dream come true- probably more so because the St. Thomas lifestyle is so opposite to my own.
And while I can certainly appreciate the utter relaxation I just experienced, it's time to return to my regular life, stress, frustration and all.

  1. How nice that you got to visit St Thomas! It's always nice to get away and relax......and leave your life behind while you contemplate which rum drink to try next!!! : )
