Photo Tour: Beaching it in St. Thomas

It's been a gross pattern of snow, freezing rain and in-your-face wind here in New York City lately, so in an effort to at least mentally escape, I started combing through pictures from our U.S. Virgin Islands trip last August.

As fate would have it, we were able to line things up so that we could visit at the same time as my sister-in-law and brother, so the four of us got to spend a few days together enjoying the island vibe. Our first night was at the Ritz-Carlton St. Thomas and we just spent our stay on the beach, which, as you can imagine at a resort like that one, was pretty perfect: plenty of lounge chairs, free standup paddle boards and snorkeling gear, and a full day of sun and blue skies.

The sunny weather was a happy treat considering a hurricane had come through the islands just days before our trip. That's the trade off when you go during low season - less crowds and less hassle, but a risk of storms. As a result, the island dealt with rolling power outages for the first two days of our trip, but it really wasn't anything too bad. It was resolved fairly quickly and then we enjoyed a stretch of great beach days.
