Home from the Madness…


Every other year or so for the last six or seven years, Greg and I have gotten together with our travel buddies Dona and Bob and we’ve taken a nice winter vacation to St. John, USVI.  The first time we went, we stayed at a beautiful villa overlooking Coral Bay on the island.  The second time we went, that particular villa wasn’t available on the dates we needed.  So we searched and searched and searched some more.
  We finally landed on a villa called “Reef Madness.”
 
And that is where we stayed this time and, most likely, that is where we will stay the next time if we go back.  Why mess with perfection??  I think you will understand what I mean when you look at my pics.  It doesn't even bother us that we have to maneuver seven switchbacks and one more gentle curve to get up there because a few days at Reef Madness is well worth it.

As usual, our time at the Madness came and went with remarkable speed.  But it was a wonderful, relaxing time away with good friends.

  Still, I am glad to be back because I missed all of you out in Blogland.

Our view in the morning of Coral Bay.  Who wouldn't want to wake up to this??
Morning reflections in the infinity pool.

Greg and Bob spend a relaxing afternoon on the veranda.

What a wonderful place, your pictures are magic, the second one especially for the reflexes in the water.. I was only once in the Caribbean (St.Lucia) and I have a good reminescence!! can't wait to see more pictures of that paradise island!
