Forums at Virgin-Islands-On-Line and VI Now are terrific resources for visitors. But they’re after the fact, past tense. So, when you read them you don’t get a sense of “Being There” because it all happened some time ago.
Shelley McLennan’s online report is not like that, at all. She’s “live blogging” her family’s vacation, right now.
Well they’re back at Blue Tang again, and she's brought along her DSLR, an awful lot of energy and sense of adventure. It's all there online for us to “read along.” Shelley and the family are going from one end of the island to the other every day, with side trips to other islands like Jost.
She's got great shots of Cinnamon and Trunk bays, plantation ruins, Coral Bay, the Soggy Dollar and more. If it’s cold or rainy or gray where you are, click onto Adventures from an … Island Girl at http://islandgirl.typepad.com/stjohnusvi/.
It’s a mini-vacation by itself.
