Hi! We're baaack... so nice to come home to the 10 degree frozen tundra- but today's a heat wave, already up to 27degrees at 9:45 in the morning! We had the best time we have ever had in St John- the weather was gorgeous, we actually went in the water, and we ate and drank waaaaaaayyyyy too much!


This is the original 5 of us on the ferry from St Thomas




I haven't decided on a TR yet, but I'm leaning towards an abbreviated version of one. I DID take a TON of food porn!

OMG, this was orgasmic! Tuna niscoise with a poached egg on top-


And some cocktail porn-

Cammie, this is the photo I was trying to send you, but the camera pics wouldn't work. Everyone say helllloooooo Rita!




Actually, I took a ton of everything- I think I took over 700 pics in 5 days. But it's just so beautiful there, i couldn't resist.

These are views from our villa-







And this is at Trunk Bay. If you are on the DCL Eastern, you HAVE to go here- it's spectacular!







And this is the full crew on the last day, we went to Jost Van D in the BVI's. It was Inauguration Day- we were out of the country for Election Day AND this!



Even our near death experience at the end of the trip provided another great photo op in St Thomas-

Can you say, "OMG, mr. taxi mon, puh-leeze don't go up Paradise Point in this 3 wheeled cart on the way to the airport!!!!!



And yes, I did cry when I saw her and had to pass her by! Plus I was completely terrified because the driver kept telling us this was a very dangerous road!

Funny thing, when I got home, I found out Lonnie, of SSR girlie TR fame, was there at the SAME TIME for the first two days!!!!!! Too bad she didn't return my latest phone call/ email until after she returned!!!

I'll be posting on this TR in the next day or 2-

E

Okay, DW and I have decided that we want you and Pods to be our new best friends!!! We want to hang out with you guys, go where you go, do what you do, etc.

Excellent pictures, as always. Thanks for adding the food & drink porn! I am encouraging you to go ahead and do a mini-TR......I did one from our beach trip this summer and it was fun!

Welcome back to the frozen tundra. It has been really cold here, for Alabama, with highs in the 30s and lows in the teens. Today, however, it is back up into mid-60s! Yay!

DW & I decided to upgrade our May vacation from Pop Century to CSR again. We loved it soooo much last year we just had to do it again!

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :

I don't think that picture would have FIT on my cell phone screen! May I ask how long it took you to finish it?

And, welcome back, btw! This weather is quite a shock to the system, isn't it?

Seriously, girl, you HAVE to do a TR - too many of us are counting on you! No pressure, though! Your pics are spectacular - looks like you had an amazing time!!!

I have never laughed so hard in my life- it was just one joke after another, what a great, great time.

Sure- we can always use even more best friends! I think a big part of the reason we go away so much is that our friends keep on asking us to go- and I'm easy, I hardly EVER say no!! In 2 weeks we're skiing overnight in the poconos with our friends at their property...in April, the 2 cruise DSs and I are headed to Corolla Light in the OuterBanks with a group of 8 families, and next year we may do Sandals in the Bahamas with other friends who are celebrating their 10th anniversary...we are very, very lucky to have so many great friends who keep asking us to join them (actually turned down 2 cruises and a Napa Valley trip this past year!).

And I cannot believe it was that cold in Alabama!!! At least we have coats up here- you guys must be chilled to the bone!! I am so glad you love CSR so much- I have friends who stayed there last year, and I was helping them plan their trip, so it's good to know it's so beautiful- I do love the way it looks in your pics on your report!

It took me about an hour- I was lagging behind the girl next to me, Perianne (who is Jane's BFF and who I just got to know- Jane is with the hat, she is my wonderful friend who keeps inviting us to St John every year), because for 20 minutes or so I was trying to get the phone camera to work! Then Kevin, Jane's DH, said, "You'd better powerdown there with Perianne, El" and I chugged. And we finished at the same time. The powerdown with Perianne line became a HUGE joke for the rest of the trip. Those Ritas were GIANT SIZED!!!!!

And BTW, my friends were all so sad about you and all your snow!

Hey V, you bad girl, you! We were in a villa called Indigo in Cruz Bay. (If you google Indigo, you can see the whole house, which was actually 2 houses). It looked down into the bay the Westin is on in St. John.
