Vacation advice

So far Boston has had a pretty chilly and wet spring. I hesitate to even call it spring because it's been too cold for my liking. Early tomorrow morning I'm escaping the chilly New England weather and heading to the warm island of St. Thomas. Our flight leaves really early and Derek isn't too thrilled at how early I'm having the cab come but I like to be at the airport way before my flight.

I've never been to the Virgin Islands and I can't wait to relax and eat and explore. Everyone has been giving me great tips such as:

"If you swim with the turtles make sure you don't swim behind them because turtle poop."

Thank you for that one mom.

"Don't go near any cliffs or go scuba diving because I've seen those shows where someone kills their spouse for the life insurance money."

I pointed out that I'm not married and Derek is not the beneficiary of my life insurance policy.

"Ginny, people get life insurance polices on people all the time and they don't even know it!"

Lucky for me I'm scared of scuba diving.

"Two words rum punch."

That is very good advice.

I'll return with lots of pictures and probably a sunburn. I don't think any amount of sunblock can protect vampire skin.


  1. LOL What great advice. I hope you have an amazing time!

  2. I wish I could give advice like that. That sounds like an adventure, though! :)
