☃️ The Cool Side of the Caribbean ❄️

While March is our favorite time to be in the Caribbean, we will take a last summer trip in July sometimes before the true kickoff to school in August. July obviously brings intense heat and we needed a reprieve from the sun and sunburn. 

Magic Ice  in Charlotte Amalie is a great place to get out of the heat. The temp is 25 F!

St. Thomas: Home Away from Home

Every year, we spend a few weeks at our place in St. Thomas. Spring is our favorite time to go, but we make a trip in late July to give the little one his last "big trip" before school starts. For us, it is simply an excuse not to leave the same lounge chair for a week.
