Snorkeling at Frederiksted Pier was a real treat! Each of the pillars is it's own micro biome of life and there was never a dull moment at this spot! There were loads of fish, corals, anenomes, algae, we even saw a a moray eel, a trumpet fish, reef squid and a hawksbill sea turtle!

#Repost ๐Ÿ“ธ @stacybmooney ใƒปใƒปใƒป #Chaney #Chaney #Chaney ๐Ÿ˜ Always on the hunt when Iโ€™m snorkeling. I found the 2 upper pieces on #StCroix beaches. When I took them into the #ChaneyChicks shop to have them crafted into pendants (for only 20 bucks!), I fell in LOVE with the lower piece in their shop; it looks like the historic sugar mills seen all over #stcroixusvi . The #ChaneyChicks referenced their books, and my 2 pieces I found are German, from the 1500s and 1700s! ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ˜ฒ . . For the history of Chaney, see excerpts below from the fabulous @ibdesigns blog ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ . Chaney are pieces of china found on the beaches of St. Croix and grounds of its old sugar plantations. Historically, after heavy rains or beach cruising, local children would find broken china treasures, and they would round them out to use as play money in games.๐Ÿค“ The name Chaney evolved from these childhood adventures combining the words china and money. Today, artisans seek Chaney and handcraft them into wearable art (jewelry). ๐Ÿ’ . It is believed that, during the 18th and 19th centuries, when new families were moving to thesland, they would bring their belongings on a ship. Rough seas would shift the cargo, causing delicate items to break. To avoid taxation, broken items would be thrown overboard before docking, thus, leaving little puzzle pieces of history for beach cruisers and snorkelers to find today. ๐Ÿšข . A 2nd theory involves shipwrecks. Captains would use china in the bottom of the ship to help balance the weight. If the ship wrecked, its contents would be strewn across the ocean floor and at the fate of the ocean tides. ๐Ÿšข . Chaney can also be discovered when walking around estates. Pieces are unearthed from their resting place of 200 years after heavy rains or when land is being excavated.๐Ÿค“ In the 1750โ€™s-1900โ€™s there was no trash collection. When a china plate broke, it was swept, tossed out the kitchen window, and preserved over generations in the ground for us to seek and bring back to life.๐Ÿคฉ Shards found on St. Croix today are rare and worn as a status symbol.๐Ÿ˜Š One eraโ€™s trash is this generationโ€™s treasure! ๐Ÿ’ . #saintcroix #usvi #jewelry #history #usvirginislands #visitstcroix ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ฎ

You canโ€™t have a rainbow without rain. The saying is true. One last wide shot of todayโ€™s #rainbow at #SandyPoint - LOOK at the CONTRAST in the skies. Anyone over THERE ๐Ÿ‘‰ where the skies were super blue, clear, and sunny DIDNโ€™T GET TO EXPERIENCE the stunning rainbow happening over HERE ๐Ÿ‘ˆ where the RAIN was coming down. This grabbed my full attention in the very moment I was staring up at this today. Yeah, sometimes you gotta go through pain, and it is awful. Canโ€™t pretend it isnโ€™t AWFUL. But, SOMETIMES, thereโ€™s going to be a rainbow just for YOU. Even if itโ€™s small and passes by quickly, and even if the sun isnโ€™t coming out for you yet, look for a small rainbow to give you just enough hope and strength to keep going. ๐ŸŒˆ . #stcroix #stx #usvi #usvirginislands #gotostcroix #visitstcroix #surroundmewithwater #coastalliving #islandsmag #womanonarock

As we were LEAVING #SandyPoint today, we got a #rainbow ! We just HAPPENED to notice a tiny sliver in the clouds and watched with mouths agape as it slowly cascaded ALL the way down to the GROUND. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ What if we hadnโ€™t been paying attention and MISSED the sliver of beauty starting in the clouds??? What if weโ€™d been too busy packing up and thinking about the next thing to notice??? What all do I miss in life in general by (metaphorically) packinโ€™ up too quickly? By not lookinโ€™ up? By thinking the BEST of an experience is OVER when the best is actually YET TO COME????? ๐Ÿ˜ฒ . You get 10 pics because I worked hard for these pics ๐Ÿ˜‚ I sprinted down the beach as fast as my short legs would go, snapped a pic, sprinted, snapped a pic, then sprinted. Since I have the coordination of a drunk hippopotamus on a GOOD day, itโ€™s amazing that I didnโ€™t trip and crash face-first into the surf during this pursuit of as wide a pic as I could grab of this extraordinary sight ๐Ÿ˜‚ . #stcroix #stx #usvi #usvirginislands #gotostcroix #visitstcroix #surroundmewithwater #coastalliving #islandsmag #womanonarock #sandypointnationalwildliferefuge #islandrainbow

This storm passing through #IsaacBay yesterday was simply mesmerizing ๐ŸŒง๐Ÿ˜ฒ ๐ŸŒŠ . #stcroix #stx #usvi #usvirginislands #gotostcroix #visitstcroix #surroundmewithwater #coastalliving #islandsmag #womanonarock
Yep, just your standard hike-to-a-hidden-beach with 2 dear friends. The beauty of the hike to #IsaacsBay is NEVER lost on me; NEVER gets old. โ›ฐ . And did you know we have cacti on the East End of #StCroix ? ๐ŸŒต . #stcroix #stx #usvi #usvirginislands #gotostcroix #visitstcroix #surroundmewithwater #coastalliving #islandsmag #womanonarock #islandhike #islandlife @nicole.martinez47
Yesterdayโ€™s drive to #PointUdall was followed by a little hike to #IsaacBay , a hidden gem on #StCroix . Hallelujah for the break in a week of rain! ๐ŸŒงโ˜€๏ธ . #stx #usvi #usvirginislands #gotostcroix #visitstcroix #surroundmewithwater #coastalliving #islandsmag #womanonarock @nicole.martinez47
When the sun FINALLY came out yesterday after DAAAYYYS of rain, I got to take our gracious guests on a drive to #PointUdall โ˜€๏ธ . Fun Facts about Point Udall (Wikipedia):โ˜€๏ธ . Point Udall is the easternmost point of the United States, including territories and insular areas. It was named in 1969 for Stewart Udall, US Secretary of the Interior under Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson. โ˜€๏ธ . The westernmost point of the US, which is in Guam, is also named Point Udall, in honor of Stewart's brother, Morris Udall. โ˜€๏ธ . In a 1987 statement in regards to the legislation which led to the naming of the point in Guam, it was said, "If our legislation is approved, America's day would begin and end at a Point Udall." โ˜€๏ธ . . #stx #usvi #usvirginislands #gotostcroix #visitstcroix #surroundmewithwater #womanonarock #islandsmag #coastalliving @nicole.martinez47
Learned how to open coconuts yesterday! Spoiler alert: it's hard. This tree is on the property we are taking care of here on St. Croix, so we'll have plenty of other opportunities to take a crack at it! ๐Ÿฅฅ We loooove coconuts! They can be used to make creamy milk, shreds, vegan cheeses, butters, and so much more! What's your favorite way to eat coconuts?๐ŸŒด . . . #stcroix #stcroixusvi #VisitStCroix #virginislands #usvirginislands #usvi #usvinice #usvistillnice #virginislandsnice #caribbeans #caribbeanlife #caribbeanisland #caribbeanvegan #caribbeantravel #caribbeanlifestyle #caribbeanvibes #carribeandream #caribbeanfever #carribean_beautiful_landscapes #caribbeanliving #caribbeanparadise #caribbeanlove #caribbeanblue #onecaribbean #caribbean_greatshots #caribbeanphotography #caribbeanhotspots #vegantravel #housesitting #veganblogger
Prior to leaving for our trip, we came across a picture featured by @eatingstcroix on Instagram, displaying a bottle of Mutiny Island Vodka. We were instantly intrigued.The exciting thing about this spirit is that it is derived from breadfruit, a common staple starch in the Caribbean. While on vacation, we had an opportunity to meet with some of the folks who work with Mutiny Island Vodka very intimately @40strand eatery, and to sample a couple different cocktails that were prepared using this "swiss army knife of spirits" by these same people. Mutiny is delicious and a must try for any adult beverage partakers visiting St. Croix. Luckily for the rest of us, it should be available in Virginia and the Carolinas in 2019. Thanks @mutinyislandvodka !! ๐Ÿน๐Ÿˆ . . #travelblogger #travelling #breadfruit #vodka #vacationlife #islandlife #tropicalparadise #tropicalvibes #caribbeanparadise #caribbeanadventure #caribbean #drinks #beautifuldestinations #drinkstcroix #drinktheworld #mutimyislandvodka #isaacsbay #stcroix #usvi #visitstcroix #usvirginislands #gotostcroix #exploreamerica #discoveramerica #getoutthere #travellovers #wanderlust #wanderlust #travelamerica #staying_afloat_

Everywhere you look you can see beauty and thatโ€™s the beauty behind photography. Being able to see something with your eyes and then look at a photo and see what others saw.
