We're almost to 2009 and time to really start the planning for St. Croix. This year, Hubs and I will be staying for a week plus and then he is returning home (poor guy) and three of my girlfriends are coming down to join me for a week. I am so lucky this year to be spending over two weeks there.
We are really looking forward to our return trip. This will be the third trip for Hubs and I and there is still so much island for us to experience.
I'm getting together with my girlfriends next week to celebrate the holidays and talk about our upcoming trip. Although they have traveled the Caribbean, this will be their first trip to St. Croix.
To those of you who love St. Croix (residents and travelers) - how about sharing some of your favorite things about it to help me really describe the island to them?
These are just a couple of my favorite things:
- Renting a villa on the east end and pretending for just a bit that we are lucky enough to live on this quiet island and awaken to this gorgeous scenery every morning
- Driving from the airport and catching my first glimpse of the open ocean and waves breaking over the reef
- Having a real dilemma on where to eat because there are so many good places to choose from but knowing that we will head to Lori's the first night because, whatever she is cooking, it's going to be really good...
Can't wait to read your favorite things!
