Hi Bahadir!

Yes, St. Croix is a wonderful, virtually secluded spot in the carribean to go. No cruise ships go there, and I think that is what they want. The island is twice the physical size of St. Thomas, with half the population, so lots of open, undeveloped area and it is anextremely easy place to drive... fun and differentfor us Americans since they drive on the left.

This is the low season for them, and we virtually had any beach we went to, to ourselves. The day we went to Buck Island to snorkel on the reef, there were only 8 people out there, which is unheard-of during their high season.

#3 is a shot of Katherine, who goes with me on all trips....she's the "official"planner and tour guide wannabe.That shotwas taken in the hallway and stairs areaat the Buccaneer Resort where we stayed. I loved the colors and positions of the paintings, so I asked her if she would mind me shooting her there. She had no idea I was using the 16:9 format and wasincluding the long painting on the right, but like it when she saw it.
