My little St. John "movie"/ trip report

Postby LMG » Mon Jul 06, 2009 6:56 am

Instead of a trip report this time around, I decided to use iMovie for the first time. It runs about 8:30 (apparently I don't do short reports either, even when I try) and it goes mostly in order of the trip itself.

There's beaches, people, dogs, food, and booze. Which pretty much covers my favorite things about the islands. Or anywhere else, for that matter. :)

The music is "Learn To Be Still" by The Eagles and "Live High" by Jason Mraz. I'm not trying to make a statement with the music, I just like it.

So, here's a little Monday morning escape, or what can be better described as My First Ever Go At iMovie So Please Be Kind:

<object width="600" height="345"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"><param name="movie" value=";;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1"><embed src=";;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="600" height="345"></embed></object>

(Sorry for the link. I tried embedding the video code but I don't think the forum likes Vimeo.)

HOLY COW! That was one of the best trip reports ever and the music was perfect. What a great way to start my week.
Thanks so much!

Do you mind if I share that with a few people? I know that will make their decision to join us next year much easier.

Oh, embedding magic. What do ya know... ;) Thanks, Anthony!

X- Of course. :)

Flip- Super adorable kids.

The only thing I wish I'd done is just gone ahead and made it even LONGER so I could include more photos of more people. I might just have to make another...

If the embed doesn't work here, try a reload, or click the link to watch it on Vimeo. I also think it is possible for people in the VI that your connection might not be up to it.

Leslie, that was so cool!! :D I think I recognized a few of the shots that you took waiting for the ferry the morning that we left!! We really enjoyed meeting you and sharing Rachael's taxi to the airport on departure day. Hope to see you again on a future trip to STJ.
