We have traveled considerably. We love the Caribbean -- beautiful water, world famous beaches and plenty of sunshine.
We have three grown up children and want to spend time with them and, hopefully, in the future, with their families. What could be better but spending time with your family in paradise.
We were visiting at the Ritz Carlton in St. Thomas. We loved our stay. All the beauty of the Caribbean plus a beautiful facility, gorgeous views, and very friendly people. It had it all. Plus, the wind is always blowing from the East -- giving us (almost always) a pleasant breeze. Just Heaven.
While we were there, the Ritz Carlton Club was being built. We bought on the spot. We look forward to spending wonderful times with our family in St Thomas.
The property is wonderful. We start off most mornings seeing the unbelievable sunrises while at the beach. Then, we do some form of exercise -- a walk up to Cabrita Point to look down island, or go to the gym or exercise class at the Hotel. A fast breakfast (room service -- love that banana bread) is then followed by either time in the sun or a day out on the water.
The days on the water are so special -- whether he take a motor boat and explore the islands or take a relaxing sail boat. Our family look forward to these days. Add in a little snorkeling, lunch and a stop on either a pirate ship or at the Soggy Dollar bar, we are a happy family. The Ritz has a 53 foot sailboat, the Lady Lindsey, she's great for day trips, sunset cruises and a sail over to St John, at night.
When we get back from either the boat or beach, it's family time. Whether we watch a movie, play a game - it's unwind time. The hot tub is always good to visit at this time of day. Then we're off to diner. Frequently, we stay on property -- because we're tired -- and the food is good. The sushi bar at Great Bay Restaurant is excellent. But, on those other evenings we head to some of our special restaurants; on St John, we love watching sunset from the ZoZos -- and the food is excellent. On St Thomas, we visit Yacht Haven, do some shopping and have dinner. We also check out the cruise boats that are in and the privates.
We keep ourselves busy -- playing golf, water running, going into town.
