Greetings from Sunny St. John
My family and I have been lucky enough to vacation on St. John almost every year for the last 13 years. It is always a wonder to us, and coming here always feels like coming home.
St. John is the smallest of the three United States Virgin Islands. Because three-quarters of the island is a National Park, there are fewer tourists and less poverty, which seems to riddle the other islands outside of the fancy resorts. There are a couple of campgrounds within the park, which makes a visit here within reach of the average family.
Here are some views of Gallows Point Resort.
Some amazing flowers . . .
And a sweet little hummingbird that let me get up close and personal.
They'll be more photos when I get home this weekend . . .
