Trunk Bay, St. John Virgin Islands
As an official baby when it comes to complaining about cold water temperature, at least for swimming, I hereby declare the beaches of St. John to be warm enough to enjoy a little soak now and then.
After returning from America, I bravely drove to Trunk Bay early this morning and took my first of the season one mile daily swim, of which I completed about 2/3 mile. The water was a bit chilly at first, but a whole lot warmer than just a month ago.
Speaking of this swim, a visit to Trunk Bay early in the morning or late in the afternoon before the tour busses have arrived with or after they’ve left is a such a delight that I would rank it right up there with the top pleasures of life. To “be here now” on this magnificent coral sand beach, with its crystal-clear water, tropical vegetation and incredible views – it’s hard to believe it’s not a dream.
So speaking to the Virgin Islanders who so often get caught up in everyday life and to those visitors who would make the effort, I say, check this one out, you’ll be glad you did!
