Ocean. Cocktails. Sunshine.
Those three nouns have played a large part in my ability to motivate myself over the past year. We had been planning a trip to the BVIs (British Virgin Islands) with our friends (Courtney of clickitupanotch.com and her husband) for at least 10 months before we left it all behind and flew down to paradise for a week. Whenever things were tough, rain fell non-stop or our kids were less than precious angels, Courtney and I would text eachother, “Time to leave yet??”
Our first stop was the US island of St. Thomas. We stayed at the Mafolie Hotel, which had a beautiful view over the harbor of Charlotte Amalie, a fun pool area and an awesome breakfast. The one full day we had on the island was filled by a quick drive over the top of the island to Magen’s Bay, followed by a long day on the beach. We had traveled during low season and the beach was wonderfully quiet, with soft sand and plenty of palm trees for shade. The guys even had a large sea turtle swim within 10 feet of them while they stood out in the peaceful water. Perfect start to the trip.
I will link to posts about the rest of the trip once they are published!
