Our Honeymoon

(Disclaimer: I know the honeymoon post is before the wedding post, and that’s because we don’t have our wedding pictures, but we do have our honeymoon pics!)

Ashton and Anna were married on September 21st. The very next morning at 6:00, we were on our way to the airport. We arrived and spent our first honeymoon night on the US Virgin Island: Saint Thomas. The next morning, we took the “Road Town Fast Ferry” to the British Virgin Island of Tortola, which is the island we spent the rest of the honeymoon on.

After paying some punk local $5 to carry our luggage 15 feet, we to a taxi to our Resort: Long Bay Resort. We had a villa up on the hill with an incredible view.

Incredible View:

The greatest part about our honeymoon was the fact that it was the “off-season” for the Caribbean, so there was no one there. Long Bay Resort, for example, has over 150 rooms, and is usually full. At any given time, while we were there, there were about 10-15 couples in the entire place, almost all of whom were on their honeymoon. It was rare to run into more than a couple people when we would walk the mile-long beach of Long Bay.

Not to mention the beaches were beautiful and relaxing:

The main place to eat breakfast and lunch at the resort was right on the beach:

One day, we went for a sailing trip on a 52′ day catamaran. It was extremely relaxing. We visited a couple islands and snorkeling spots:

Our honeymoon was more fun than can be expressed in just one blog post, so I’ll be adding another shortly,

Shall it forever burn brightly,
Ashton and Anna
