St John Day Trippin’

012
This is St John USVI – it’s calendar quality beautiful EVERYWHERE you go!We’ve been here a couple of times already and it just keeps getting better.

This island is basically a National Park.  Ruins galore.

001
Sugar Cane Mills.  A lot of plantations.  Incredible to see smack dab in the middle of the bush.

002
The construction of these structures is just amazing.  Seriously, no large heavy machinery to move, dig, build – how on earth did they do this…
What a feat.

003
The structure that is still left standing is wicked.
Reminiscent of some European homes and restaurants, old style construction that is not only functional but beautiful as well.

004
Let’s talk about the donkey’s living all wild and free.
Apparently when slavery was abolished they included the donkeys that busted their a$$ building all these settlements and carting everything and everyone around back then.

005

Now, the donkeys just do what they want.
It’s cool and weird at the same time.
006
Hey where else do you see this?
We need a road.  Let’s build one.
Shoot what about this tree?
Big one…hmmm.
Go around it – problem solved!
Love it!

007
Wish there were more stories behind each of these ruins.

008
Anywhere else these ruins would have been bulldozed and there would be some mega resort here – but not on St John.
Thank you!

Driving around this island it’s absolutely IMPOSSIBLE not to have a great time!  The roads are paved and in good shape and the views…seriously.

013
Can’t think of anyone with a better view from this lounge chair!

014
I like the way this guy thinks, house isn’t even finished and the hot tub is in!

015
Ok so if we weren’t already having a blast roaming the hills of St John…

016
We came here – Love City.

017
I had this fish dish which was mmm mmm good.

And the boys had this…

018
Which was admittedly better – omg!
