St. John's Post 4: The Last Days

>> Wednesday, June 15, 2011

All good things must come to an end, and the end of our vacation sadly came way too fast! We certainly lost track of days while playing on the beach, sipping frozen drinks and reading a few good books. Before we knew it we were down to our last days, but certainly made the best of them!

We successfully visited every beach on our must see list. The day after our sailing adventure we went to Trunk Bay. The snorkeling wasn't as great at this beach, but the water and sand made up for that! We literally sat on the beach until the mosquitoes tried to eat us alive, which happened at about 4PM everyday.


After the beach we all went home and showered for a nice dinner out at Waterfront Bistro. Of course, since we were all dressed up, I had to get a family picture before we left. I think this is my new favorite picture, hands down:)
Dinner was pretty good, but I certainly wouldn't recommend the restaurant. The menu was very limited and pretty pricey. However, the drinks and atmosphere were awesome!
*************************************************************
The next day was our last beach day so we were sure to get an early start.  We still had 3 beaches left on our list and were determined to see them all! First on our list was Caneel Bay.  The resort was beautiful and wild donkeys roamed the beach.  




We easily could have spent the day at that beach, but had to make ourselves leave in enough time to check out Hawksnest Bay.  Unfortunately, the "no-see-ums" bugs were terrible by the time we got there.  So, we played in the water and snapped a few pictures before heading to The Westin.  



The beach at the Westin wasn't much to see, but the pool was awesome.   Jackson and Amelia took long naps on the pool chairs while we swam drank more frozens:)
After our beach packed day, we made one last stop before heading back to the house to clean up for our night out.  This stop was a special stop for me...my loving Mr. took me to Jewels to pick out a new pretty for our anniversary! They had a lot of pieces from my new favorite designer, Marco Bicego, so  I came home with an exclusive Caribbean necklace! Love:)
Our last night was so fun and came to an end way too fast.  We laughed and enjoyed a nice evening at Banana Deck before heading home to pack everything up.  I love my family so much, I wish everyday was a vacation with them at the beach!
We spent our final day shopping in St. Thomas before flying back home.  Thankfully, our travel home was much less eventful then getting there!
