  1. Your photos are amazing, it looks like the proverbial tropical paradise! I haven’t been to St John but we are talking about a family holiday in the area next year so who knows, maybe we’ll manage to visit!

  2. Love the photos! We keep talking about going there, but just haven’t made it. Hopefully soon!

  3. Your camera has captured the beauty of the island with stunning love. Nature erupts into a dance of bliss in your pictures.

  4. It’s such a beautiful place! The VIs haven’t been in our travel plans yet, but they look so perfect and peaceful.

  5. Absolutely love St. John — Trunk Bay is in my personal Top 5 beaches in the world, and you’ve done a fantastic job capturing its beauty.

  6. St. John definitely looks magical with those azure waters and golden beaches. Loved all your quotes especially “Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone”. Awesome!

  7. Really beautiful pictures, especially the first one, with a perfect shoreline. My next trip is going to be a beach holiday and I hope I get to see as beautiful beaches as here.

  8. This post has inspired my wanderlust! Would love to visit USVI and do some diving. The water looks perfect for it.
