It’s my third visit to this beautiful island in 14 months and each visit I love the island even more. I thought I’d take this opportunity to share a few images I’ve captured over the last couple of days. These photos were all taken using the built-in camera on the iPhone.
Cinnamon Bay beach is 3.9 miles east of Mongoose Junction on Route 20, St. John, US Virgin Islands. By far the best view on the island. It truly is breathtaking.
Sunset viewed from Cruz Bay.
Salomon Beach is about a mile hike from Cruz Bay. Quiet, white sand and clear waters it is a must visit for all beach lovers.

Cruz Bay is where all the ferries from neighboring islands come in. St. Thomas is in the distant to the left.Read More

One could look at the mind as layers. You have the conscious mind then above it the subconscious and above tha...Read More

Our meditation retreat is off to a wonderful start. A brief light shower that came in from the south cooled the island after what had been a pretty hot day.
