Saturday, Andi and I took the train into the city of Malaga and did a little exploring. We visited the big market there, where I bought some great spices, and we sampled some of the local fare at one of the tapas stands. We made the obligatory trip to Zara, where I picked up a few things, and then we sat and chatted over more tapas and wine. Here in Spain, it is expected to sit down every few hours, eat a tapa or two, drink a glass of wine and chat before heading back out again. Oh, and naps. Naps are big here. I’m a big fan of that part – well everything, really. All and all, the day was a success, and I loved having some catch up time with this one. She’s pretty great. :) xo
Tuesday, we set off to explore St. John’s, which is a mere 20 minute ferry ride from St. Thomas. With sunny skies and a light breeze, all I have to say it was pretty heavenly to be outdoors on a boat. It’s been a while and I never take it for granted when it happens. Anyway, we enjoyed our day by exploring the shops, wandering the winding streets, and eating a yummy lunch at a little cafe not far from the ferry landing.

The largest palm there ever was.
Unaware of the camera, but still in disbelief at the largeness of said palm.
Mmmm…that’s what you were doing over there…
After returning to our island, I went down to the pool and swam around as the sun began to set, which was really relaxing and peaceful. Then later that evening, I made us yummy orange white wine spritzers, which I have to say were very tasty and refreshing. We finished up the night at a restaurant in Red Hook where I got the pulled pork sandwich. Messy, but oh so good.
I have to say I was pretty happy with how my hair turned out, and was glad that I brought along my favorite Coach heels. To me, they make any outfit feel chic because of their pretty buttery color and of course because of their nice, high heel.
Yes, this is what happened to my face after taking my first bite. Extremely attractive, don’t you think? : )

Good Morning! So, as you all know, I am now in St. Thomas. It was such a last minute, unexpected trip but I just have to say, I find it amazing how things turn out sometimes. Anyway, I feel so lucky to be here and am super excited to share fun photos with you all! Thanks again for being such awesome, supportive readers. Okay, back to the beach I go! xoxo
The photo above was taken in a little area right outside the room. Lovely.

Happy, sandy feet!

This is the outfit I wore to dinner in Red Hook, where we ate at Duffy’s Love Shack. Our waitress was great, and the food was super tasty. I ate chips and guac, Mahi-mahi tacos and a Mojito. Yum!
