Today on Sunday 360 we bring you another great view from a south shore point. Can anyone guess which one? Here's a hint: this 0.7 mile hike is the sister trail to the photo from last week. Looking forward to your guesses! ... See MoreSee Less

Today on Sunday 360 we are sticking around the south shore area from previous weeks. Can anyone name this spot? Here's a hint: this 0.2 mile hike in the Lameshur area brings you out to a great spot with beautiful views! We look forward to the guesses in the comment section. ... See MoreSee Less

I don’t remember the name but I remember losing a lens cap while scrambling over rocks there 30 years ago. My wife to be got busted by a park ranger on Lameshur for going topless. Thanks for the reminder of a great trip.

We make an annual trip to St. Thomas, and renting a car can greatly expand your horizons. This year (Week of April 18th) we decided to take the car ferry over to St. John, something we had not done before. The trip was interesting to say the least, with locals playing dominos on the deck and having some colorful discussions. After arriving in Cruz Bay, we decided to drive the entire island and make occaional stops. This island is truly paradise, with scenic stops, beautiful pristine beaches, and of course the curious donkeys on the roadsides. Driving ourselves allowed us to explore and enjoy on our own time, beautiful mountains and beautiful beaches. First stop, Hawksnest. While right along the main road, it had very nice accommodations with showers and restrooms. The water was crystal clear and there were no crowds. Next stop, Trunk Bay which is a National Park. In addition to very nice amenities, a great snorkel trail, and pristine beach, it also has an archealogy center and small museum with working members present to provide some of the history of the island. Lunch was at a little place called Skinney Legs, which was touted as having the best burger on the islands...and they were correct. Tie died shirts and other beach apparel, jewelry not found anywhere else, and a local feel that was one of the higlights of our trip. The trip also involved visiting the ruins at Denis Bay (it's a climb but well worth it), and the old sugar mill called Annaberg. We really didn't want to leave, but the ferry back to St. Thomas was our only way home. Oh well, we'll be back I'm sure many more times to explore more.
