Here's where I've been

So I've decided that the easiest way to tell you all about my trip is to keep it simple.  (i.e. pictures)

Join Steve, Katrina, Joyce, Arlon, Steph, Carrie, Laszlo and Angela, Kim, Marshall, Evan, Kristine, and Natalie on a tour of the Western Carribean!!!

After boarding the boat and setting sail (er..motor) at ten PM, the crew woke up bright and early for an adventrous day at the US Virgin Island of St Thomas.

The girls all looked their best..

Last, but definitely not least, was the lovely, yet windy, Aruba.
