Part 2: The US Virgin Islands

There were alot of really neat ruins on St.John. I was really impressed by the sturdiness and quality of some of these buildings even though they are several hundred years old! I wish buildings were built to last like that these days. There were also plenty of hikes there but we only had time to do one which was the Reef Bay Trail. We chose this one because we thought there was going to be a neat waterfall but to our disappointment the waterfall was waterless perhaps because there hasn't been enough rain. But it was all worth it even for free mangos! We came across a mango tree and mangos were falling all over the place. The other neat thing about this hike is there were petroglyphs at the waterfall site. In the end, this hike was worth all the huffing and puffing up and down the steep hills!

This mango was especially delicious because it had just fallen off the tree!

Fallen tree or standing tree, I love them all!

  4. Those two dresses are stunning on you! My favorite would have to be the white one though. And I'm not a fan of insects, so I'm not gonna lie, I jumped a wee bit when I saw a couple of those pictures. Looks like you're having a blast though!

    Have a great day!
