My Daughter in Deep Thought

She was only less than two years old when I took this shot from the highest point (1500 ft) on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. I don't even remember what she was looking at - maybe she's sleepy, tired? But it turned out to be a great picture anyway!

Charlotte Amalie, the capital city of this island, certainly has one of the most beautiful harbours in the whole world! A lof of people here (like my wife) seem to enjoy shopping in the duty-free shops...many of them coming from the cruise ships that dock here so often. Instead of cruising, we chose to sleep for a few days on the best resort on the island.

The views at the hotel-resort were awesome, and my son was looking for iguanas by the seaside garden in this picture (we were heading for the tennis courts).


I made a short video of our first trip to the Caribbean!
Hope you like this:


Watching Cruise Ships

Maybe we'll be riding cruise ships more in the future, but for now (as of 2008) we still enjoy just taking a normal plane ride and then just setting out on our own schedule in unfamiliar territory. The twins seem to be wanting to go out to sea in this picture, or I think they are just acting like they're depressed or something (shrugging their shoulders down or up and looking down). Must have been something they saw on TV or from me?

    Hi, Norman! It's certainly a great place to enjoy, but a bit too far away! Thanks for your nice presentation, as always!

    No pirates in sight. Wonder how different the fishes and corals of the Caribbean are from SE Asian counterparts.

    The shopping spree at St. Thomas sounds good to me. Though I am not a shopper myself, but I guess I will not be able to resist the great deals you are saying.
