My friend, Sue and I booked a super last minute getaway to the US Virgin Islands. Neither one of us had been there before and it was such an amazing, relaxing trip. I already want to go back and explore more islands.

We stayed in St. Thomas but took the ferry for a day trip to St. John. Talk about gorgeousness. The sand was white. The water was clear. We even saw little fishes swimming all around us. Absolutely amazing.

I was on my way home when I was passing by the Iwo Jima memorial. It was pouring but I figured I’d wait around to see what would happen. Luckily as soon as I arrived, there was a break in the rain. I ran as fast as I could and grabbed a few shots. I was super lucky that one of them got this little lightning strike. I don’t know which is more surprising, the fact that this was hand held or that I barely got wet trying to get it. Both are a win to me 🙂
