Blogging on Island Time Part II

We're home! After a week in St. Thomas I was glad to be back in my own bed :) and back to my blog!!! I missed it like a child...ok well maybe a pet! Lots to share about our trip because WiFi wasn't reliable where we stayed. Our trip in pictures, here goes!

St. John (USVI)

Donkeys wanted to come for a ride in our car...

Drinking coconut water from a coconut! Yum take that Vita Coco! No time for smiles gotta hydrate :)

Jost Van Dyke (Brittish Virgin Islands)

Soggy Dollar Bar -> name sake, you've got to swim to it! 
Conch fritters were enjoyed here :) So too hungry for pictures...(this happened a few times)

Valentines Dinner Coco Blue (St. Thomas USVI)

Oysters with passion fruit jelly

Crab and lobster salad on a temporad avocado (Fried avocado??!! AMAZING)

A lot of the food on the island was burger, pizza, pub type offerings.  So Coco Blue was a refreshing change! We are spoiled here in Portland (a foodie paradise) but Coco reminded us of the cool restaurants from home. 

Home-cooked Breakfast

One of our last mornings on the island we cooked a big breakfast complete with bloody marys and mimosas :) Most mornings I had my usual oatmeal (yes, I brought oatmeal with me!)


I enjoyed many bloody marys and coconutty beverages :)
More island stuff to come!!
