Sunday in the US Virgin Islands
So today was my kind of VI day. There was a little rain and some clouds in the morning, but by late morning it was sunny and breezy, with blue skies and passing clouds. We took the kids down to the Elysian on the East End out by the Ritz Carlton. There are a couple of places to eat there, Bonnie's (the cheese burger was good - not so sure about the conch fritters though!) and Robert's, and you can usually snag some beach furniture without much hassle.
I had a nice snorkel, mostly along the east side (facing the water). The highlight was a good size Nassau Grouper hiding out in a rock, and a few large Grey Angels, along with a huge snapper (I don't have my fish guide book with me - I need to look it up to make sure what it was exactly).
We spent a few hours there, swimming, eating, playing on the sand with the kids, and picked up some good VI gossip from some old friends we ran into. All in all, a very nice day.
