Continuing on the “better late than never” theme, here are some more photos from our Christmas vacation in St. John.
Not only do you have to drive a car with the driver’s side on the left on the left side of the road, but you have to look out for all sorts of things crossing the road. There were donkeys, chickens, and goats everywhere. This was a bit of a traffic-jam situation caused by a group of goats crossing the street.

You know what they say, right? Better late than never. Well here goes…
This Christmas my family decided to do something completely different. Rather than spending the holidays in NJ like I have done for the past 30-something years, we went on an adventure. We rented a villa in Coral Bay on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands and we did what you do on vacation: rest, eat, drink, hike, snorkel, relax on the beach, and take photos. It was a great time. Here are some of the scenic views.
This is the view from the villa that we rented. The house was called “la mer” and it was perched on the top of Bordeaux Mountain overlooking Coral Bay with views of the British Virgin Islands. The color photo is a stitched panoramic of the view during the day and the monochrome is of the same view at night.

Last weekend we made a trip to visit Tammy’s mother and step-father who recently moved to Charlotte, NC. As I have come to expect with any trip to see Tammy’s mom the weekend was action-packed with lots of activities and fun. On Saturday we went to see Tammy’s mom’s new horse, Spyder, and watch her riding lesson. Of course I took a little time to wander around the grounds of the stables and take a few photos.
This is Tammy’s mom, Vicki, on her new horse Spyder during her riding lesson and monochrome of a tree that I stumbled upon on the grounds of the farm.
Happy Thanksgiving! Boy do I have a lot to be thankful for. If I actually took the time to type out the list it would just go on and on. The highlights would be my beautiful wife, my loving family, my friends, health, happiness, security, etc…
This year, Thanksgiving dinner was in Boston at our house. Tammy made an awesome meal, and my mom and dad came up from NJ and my sister came up from Brooklyn dinner. Here are some pics from the day.
The guests shortly after they arrived for Thanksgiving.Continue reading
