snapshots of scenes from st thomas
there are a couple spots around st thomas where the surf picks up during the winter months. a friend took callie and i to hull bay to check out the waves. callie went out and gave it a shot, but i opted to stay on the beach with a book because the break was a little to close to shallow reef for my liking. so i still have yet to learn how to surf... crossing my fingers it'll happen in costa rica or hawaii this spring! :)
this is a heavenly dirty chai latte from my favorite cafe on the island, called barefoot buddha. and that's my little travel wallet, which i lost near a bus stop in havensight. i went back and looked for it, but no dice. but over a week later, i was sailing around the british islands with friends, and amber called to tell me someone turned my wallet into the yacht haven security office! of course, it was missing the $30 i had in it (finder's fee?), but at least i got my peace back :)
one monday, kim and i took the ferry over to water island for movie night. a couple of silly boys met up with us and made us laugh through the entire thing. and to be honest, i was way to enamored by the beauty of our surroundings to pay attention to the film anyway. they played cartoons as the sun set---perhaps cause they knew the REAL show was behind the screen ;) but when the sun was gone and the movie came on, i could not take my eyes off the STARS. and then the cute faces on the rows of people watching that projection hanging from two palm trees. and then a cute sailor boy with blonde dreads sat next to me and we talked about sailing and traveling and thoooose STARS :) nature is my favorite form of entertainment.
my sweet kim works at a pool bar at a resort on the south side of the island. i love going down to visit her, and bringing along a few of my best friends. because, besides the excellent service, it's the perfect spot to relax and have real, genuine, uninterrupted conversation. it's quaint and quiet and only a stone's throw from the beach. i'll take that over a rowdy sport's bar almost any day ;)
