All Good Things Must Come to an End.
28.11.2014 - 28.12.2014
Going home is always bittersweet. I never want to leave, but I'm itching to get back to my house and my dogs.
We had an afternoon flight, so we were at least able to make a leisurely departure.
Of course, I had to take one more photo of the Trunk Bay overlook....or two:
And the Cruz Bay overlook:
We made a final stop at Mongoose Junction to look for those final few things we couldn't live without.
And one final painkiller at the Beach Bar to ensure I had consumed the appropriate amount of rum on this vacation.
Okay....and maybe a bushwhacker too!
To ensure we didn't get to the airport an earlier than was absolutely necessary, we made a final meal at Pie Whole in Frenchtown on St. Thomas.
And then......just like that.....it was over.
Sure, the trip started off a little rough, but in the end, it was everything we wanted it to be.
And yeah, it kind of sucked leaving the balmy warm beaches for the 24 degrees that were waiting for me at home, but you know what else was waiting for me at home?
At least we were returning to the season of twinkly lights and sugar cookies. A time when excessive shopping is allowed and binge eating is practically required. I was ready for glitter and peppermint mochas.
Bring on the eggnog!
