The first day in the Virgin Islands was a dream. Both literally and figuratively seeing that we took the red eye into St. Thomas and were basically sleep walking 🙂 But these beaches are straight out of a Sandals brochure. Even with the drought that is taking over the island, the color palette makes me blink uncontrollably, like, “how is this real life?”. We spent the day at Sapphire Beach (google pictures of it– it is even more beautiful in person if that is possible), just minutes from Captain Sharon’s house where we were staying. Captain Sharon, or Sha, is a longtime family friend and a proper host. Stay tunned– Bon Voyage!
