This time last week I woke up on our last morning in St. John, the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands. It is impossible to describe how beautiful St. John is. "Simple" is the best word I can come up with to describe how the beauty and lifestyle of St. John mesh. Pristine, white-sand beaches are uncluttered with either debris or buildings. Green forests are interrupted only by the white sand of the beach, the blue of the ocean and scatterings of homes on hillsides.
