st. john day 4

tuesday night was emily’s 20th birthday so after our tex-mex dinner we got her an oreo cake, and one itty-bitty candle to blow out…

A

and then we sang to her twice and made her blow out her candle again for the video camera 🙂

B

today(wednesday) we basically had a monsoon all day long…

C

but we didnt let it dampen our adventurous spirit! we decided to head all the way over to the other side of the island for lunch and some exploring.

the coral bay area is known for the wild donkeys that hang out there…and look! we found some! this little cutie even let me pet his nose :)…

D

see…i told you it was pouring…

E

but bad weather on the islands is still better than bad weather at home. and i still managed to find some photo opps…

we ate at this great little burger dive in coral bay, called “skinny legs”(great name, right!? except dad kept calling it “skanky legs”)

ha, emily’s legs looked just like the ones on the sign…

I

the rest of us…not so much…

i liked how they had a little library you could borrow books from in the bar…

st. john day 1

yesterday we just explored a little bit, trying to get our bearings on this new island

we ate lunch at a little mexican place in town, and i think my favorite part were these little chickens walking around, acting like they owned the place…

A

then we all piled in the cars for a little tour of the beaches. all the roads here get REALLY steep, and its pretty crazy sometimes. lets just say we are very thankful for brakes!…

B

there are only one or two roads on the whole island, and they have these nice little overlooks where you can stop and look down on the shoreline…

F

we kept driving until we reached the end of the road, and saw this cute little lemonade stand right before we got to the beach…and look who took advantage of a business opportunity! 🙂

G

st. john is made up of mostly national park, so there are some neat hiking trails. this one was like some sort of magical bamboo forest 🙂

H

at the end of the trail were some old ruins…

I

it was a great first day, and now we are ready for many more adventures this week!
