Black fringe and white fringe enjoying a day at the beach!

Magens Bay, St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, is considered one of the top ten beaches in the world. It is the standard by which I judge all beaches due to it being my first exposure to tropical beaches.

Growing up in Brooklyn, a day at the beach meant taking the subway to Coney Island, squeezing a blanket in between the thousands of others on the hot sand, setting up the beach umbrella and waiting for Grandma Gussie to make the salami sandwiches, which somehow ended up tasting gritty. They were true SANDwiches! We had to then wait the proverbial hour before going in the water. Good memories.

So far, in my travels, the only other beach in the world that tops the heart-shaped Magen’s Bay is Varadero Beach in Cuba. The sand is white velvet, the water is turquoise heaven. The never-ending search continues. Meanwhile, the beaches of Costa Rica have a lot to offer and a fabulous place to call home.

    I’m going to have to disagree with Carole Jean and back Jan up. You’re too humble. You DO look amazing!!! The bookends are also gorgeous, but my mama is incredible and beautiful…just sayin.

    Great photo Carole and I love your new friends. looks like you are having a great time. Good for you.

    I’m enjoying reading all your posts, they are so amusing. Also, I had to laugh because I have several JAMS dresses from Hawaii that I wore for a number of years as they are just right in this desert heat. I now prefer the even more comfortable FRESH PRODUCE dresses. In 120 degrees I don’t feel like wearing anything!!!!!!

    Off to England with Marisa next week. Have been lining up visits to my Mum and friends. It’s going to be a busy time.

    Saw a hilarious movie last week called ” We are the Millers”. With Jennifer Aniston. Very raunchy, but an absolute riot!!!

    Hugs to your lovely Don and keep having fun. love yu Linda
