St John 2020

Trunk Bay

Staying  in St Thomas but today...ST JOHN IT IS!! We have just went to Maho Bay and now we were on to a new beach. Then we arrived at Trunk Bay but first we seen there was a ruins across the street, so we stopped to walk around there before heading to the beach. 

Here's a pictures of Trunk Bay from above. They say it's one of the most photographed beaches in the US Virgin Islands and I can see why.

We made our way out to the beach. It is a bit of a walk (for me) but they did have sidewalks to walk on between the beach and sand across from it. So, that made it easy. We tried to locate a shaded area but most of the trees along the beach were already filled with people. It's double hard to find a place that you can remain 6' away from other people. 

We did see that across the walkway there were several picnic benches lined up and plenty of shade. Billy usually stays back and relaxes or naps so we figured we'd leave our things with him and me and the hubby grabbed our snorkeling gear and said we were headed out. Sakari didn't want to go and stayed back with them. 

I have to say this beach is GORGEOUS! And it's really big too. 

 

 

Now here's the map of the snorkeling area. We were all the way to the right.

We knew we needed to head out toward the big hill so that's what we did.

So I'll show you around and I have to say this place was AMAZING!

The very first thing we came across while trying to make it out toward the hill was the very huge Permit Jack. Like it was massive. I had to get the hubby's attention to show him as it swam by us several times and then took off in the opposite direction we were going. These fish have massive crunching jaws to eat shrimp, crabs, shellfish and small fish. He looked a little intimidating to me with his mouth hanging out. "People are not food" I said as he swam by checking us out.
