snow white (in the springtime)
miracle of bloom
who could ever doubt Divine Intention in the room?

st. thomas & st. john, u.s. virgin islands


my sister (donna) and her husband (tom) invited the family down to st. thomas (usvi) to enjoy a "timeshare experience of a lifetime" in early march, 2008.

james (donna's son) made the trip, along with albert and josephine.

this picture (left) was taken on my excursion to st. john.

the snorkeling visibility was probably 100 ft.

wow!





these pictures provide you with a little glimpse of the beauty and serenity...

the picture (below) was taken from the timeshare balcony on st. thomas.
