Stops in St. Thomas

Todd and I have had the pleasure of taking several Caribbean cruises.  On most of the cruises, we’ve made a stop in St. Thomas.  St. Thomas is filled with many wonderful things to do and we’ve tried several of them.  We’ve taken a catamaran and snorkeled.  We’ve walked along the streets of Charlotte Amalie, stopping for bamboo t-shirts and sea salt scrub.   All of these adventures were amazing and we enjoyed them very much.  But, none of them could compare to our trip to Magen’s Bay.

Magen’s Bay is the best beach I have ever had the chance to visit.  It is deep, calm, blue and white.  It is dreams filled with wonderful gooey things while floating, waiting for your drink to be delivered to you.  It is gazing at the hills surrounding the pristine waters of the bay.  It is magnificent.

  1. I love how you dont directly take pictures of the ocean area. It’s like a little tease , a peek, in the background. I think just having a glimpse of it makes it much more alluring and beautiful.

  2. The colors in your photos are stunning and make me want to visit immediately! I will look at these pictures throughout the winter months when I need a little pick me up. Thank you for brightening my day.

  3. Looking between the trunks of tree, beyond the leaves I can see
    blue sky..with floating clouds, branches sway and flag held up high
    and the sausage..makes me remember the last summer.Where were you? Didn’t take any picture .did you 🙂

  4. Love the color intensity…. very nice! They will be nice on a cold or stormy day! Thanks for posting… 😀

  5. OMG! I’ve been to St. Thomas too but I didn’t realize how beautiful it is until I saw your pictures! I’m so amazed by photographers and their skills all the time cuz I love to take pictures too but mine are always “ok”. 😉 Oh, btw I saw you liked a post on my blog so I am visiting yours (if you are wondering who is this girl;)).

  8. Oh Seth, I shall blame my obsession for a Christmas getaway on your pics so when my annoyed hubby tries to get even with you it is all your fault! Ha ha ha…….anyway…good shots I love them!

  9. Thank you so much for liking my post. These photos are amazing. They remind me of our honeymoon. I have always wanted to go to St.Thomas. It looks breath taking.

    • Thank you so much. I just took these with a normal point and shoot canon camera. I now have a dslr but not when I took the trip. So, the sky was really that blue.

  10. Lovely post Seth! I actually lived on this island for a little more than a year and the view from my house was of Magen’s Bay. You are right: the water is so blue and enigmatic… Just looking at this pictures makes me wish I were still there!
