a day on st. john island.

on day two of our vacation, we took a 15-minute ferry ride to the island of st. john. we were instantly in love with the feel of the island. st. john is not very developed (you can only get to the island via boat/ferry), the┬átiny little huts with locals selling fruits & tropical drinks,┬ábars and restaurants right on the beach and some of the brightest teal water you can imagine. we spent the majority of our day at Trunk Bay, which is easily one of the most beautiful beaches i’ve ever been to (National Geographic agrees). the boys spotted an iguana (d was excited), we snorkeled and the guys saw a manta ray. we ended the day at Joe’s Rum Shack on the beach for $3 drinks until our ferry left.such a perfect day in paradise. i think we were all just trying to take it in… not only we were in such a beautiful place, but we were enjoying it with some of our favorite people. pretty awesome.
