So Jose and I recently took a trip to St. Croix! (More about that later). And on our second day we were driving around trying to find the perfect beach to hang out at and spotted this one off the side of the road. I loved how hidden it was and that there weren't a ton of people there. We attempted to snorkel for a bit and then explored this little section of reef off shore that was filled with tide pools and sea urchins. It was so cool! Seriously though, I'm pretty sure I spent a good half hour staring at these little purple blobs inflate and shrink with the tide (I'm also pretty sure the locals thought our fascination was so weird).
The best part of this beach though was that part of the reef looked exactly like the rocks in The Little Mermaid that Ariel sings on. So of course I had to go out there to take a picture! And nearly died. The rocks had all these teeny craters that cut into your stomach whenever you laid on them, and the waves kept crashing into me, almost knocking me into the sea urchins and their spikes. Oh, and I lost a flip flop so walking back was rough haha. But it was totally worth it and such an awesome day.
Hope you're all having a great weekend and check back for more posts about our trip!
