St. John Sunday and Memorial Day

As mentioned in the last post, we were invited to take a day trip to St. John with M & A, and their friends T and B who are visiting from Louisiana. Dan and I jumped at this chance because it’s always nice to go with someone who knows what they’re doing 🙂

We took the car ferry from Red Hook to Cruz Bay, St. John. Our journey took us to Trunk Bay for some snorkeling, then Cinnamon Bay and a stop at Woody’s Seafood Saloon for happy hour before heading back to Red Hook to eat dinner at Fish Tails. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves (I guess with help from my ever-witty captions).

I don’t think I’ve ever actually written this down, but an FYI for anyone who may now know. The islands are abbreviated as follows:

STT = St. Thomas

STJ = St. John

STX = St. Croix

Car barge ferry. $50 round trip.

St. John was lovely, and the snorkeling was great too. We can’t wait to go back another day! Other than a pretty wicked sunburn for both of us, it couldn’t have been a better day.

Memorial Day was spent putzing around the house, gathering staples and things for the kitchen. We ended the day at Hull Bay Hideaway again, because those darn fish tacos are so good. Oh yeah, and for this:

    • It was lovely! Fortunately no cinnamon in sight. Apparently if you hike through the national park on St. John, you may pass through a live cinnamon forest. A FOREST OF CINNAMON. No thanks 🙂

  1. So happy I found your blog! The husband and I are the same “no house, no kids” so why not? I’m applying for a teaching position and will see what happens. In the meantime, I’ll binge read your blog and imagine my possible future. Thanks! -Abby
