Earlier this month, we experienced another first. My husband and I got to celebrate his December birthday in flip flops and swimsuits. It was odd but perfect. It fell on a Tuesday, but island Tuesdays are like Saturdays, which are like Thursdays. Catch my drift? He was lucky enough to have the day off, so we decided to spend his special day out on the water with two of our very best island friends. We met at the Westin St. John to board the BLAST, which is operated by Cruz Bay Watersports. It’s a 25 passenger boat, but only 11 people were on our trip. I love a smaller crowd because A) I’m claustrophobic and B) you really get to know the people on the boat. Jost With the Most is the name of our excursion. We’ve done the other Jost Van Dyke trip and the Virgin Gorda one, and they are all so much fun. Jost With the Most is my personal favorite though. Here are some of the highlights of our day.
The right weather can make a good day perfect. The temperatures were in the low 70s when we left, almost a tad chilly- pleasantly brisk start to the day. (Low 70s actually feel cold on our island!)

This “Birthday Blast” is going to be hard to top. That doesn’t mean we won’t keep trying though! Cheers to island birthdays in the USVI, especially warm December birthdays in paradise!
