To the Beach

We're leaving tomorrow for a little vacation in the Virgin Islands. I think this is DH's favorite place on earth. He even told me not long ago that he would like to have his ashes scattered there (he's a cheery sort ;)). It is beautiful, and the beaches are wonderful.

Although I love the beautiful Tahitian island of Moorea (below), and it's absolutely magical (think Bali Hai), there are a lot of weird sea creatures and coral in the water, so not the best for swimming, splashing around, etc. -- especially with children. So, I guess I'd have to agree that the pristine soft white sandy beaches of the Virgin Islands are my favorite as well -- in particular Trunk Bay on St. John (pictured above). Plus, it's a lot less grueling trip getting to the U. S. Virgin Islands from Dallas than to French Polynesia, but someday (sigh) I'd really love to go back to Moorea.

I'm so happy that Leah is going with us. It will be her first plane trip since she was just a tiny little thing, so she's a little nervous, but she's a trooper and determined to conquer her anxieties. I'm so proud of her! I know she's going to love it.
Be back in a couple of weeks. Happy 4th of July!
