Mrs. Goldstein and I just got back from a little over a week in the islands. Had a great time, and wanted to share a few pictures. We stayed at the Marriott Frenchmen's Reef in St. Thomas, and also visited St. John, as well as the British Virgin Islands.

If I plan vacations, I usually schedule at least 1 day of fishing. We went out chasing Blue Marlin with Ocean Surfari on their 48' boat called Free Spool. I caught a 400 lb Blue, and Mrs. Goldstein had another good one pulling line for a couple minutes without stopping. He eventually broke off after stripping 80% of the line off the reel. We didn't get any good pictures of my catch, as he was still fighting us trying to get him to hold still beside the boat.

Most of our other pictures are on Mrs. Goldy's phone. Also not sure why some are turned sideways. I am no technology expert.

Awesome. Sucks you didn;t get a good picture of your Marlin. Sounds like a great trip though

Glad you had a good trip Goldy. Did you spend any time over at Jost Van Dyke or do any snorkeling?

We did a full day tour of the BVI that included the Baths at Virgin Gorda, lunch at Marina Cay (where the Pain Killer was orginated), Snorkeling at Diamond Reef, and a couple hours at Jost Van Dyke (home of the Soggy Dollar).

We also took our Jeep over to St. John, and snorkeled all over the island as we hiked and beach hopped.

Mrs. Goldy loves to fish, but this was her last attempt at offshore fishing. 6 years ago we tried to spend a day offshore chasing Marlin in Costa Rica during our honeymoon. She got sea sick quickly, so I asked the Captain to head closer to shore and target species in calmer waters.

This trip, she was determined to give it another try. Unfortunately, she just doesn't ha the stomach for open water. I told her we could head back in early, but she would not let me. She knows how bad I wanted a Blue Marlin. She was pretty green for much of the day, but she fought through it so we could stay out. Mrs. Goldy is a trooper, and I am a lucky guy. However, she decided she will stick to bay fishing from now on, and I am on my own for open water trips.

Gingers snorkel with long sleeve shirts on, just like we fish.

I really wish I had better pictures, but those are the best I can do. Honestly, 40 lbs or 400 lbs, I really don't care. All I care is I caught my first Blue.

Good times right there buddy up

Heck of a woman to stick it out when sea sick. I have never been sea sick, but the folks I have been with that were looked absolutely miserable.

Beautiful photos! I would be happy just getting a BM on, what a blast!!

Next time, see if the Mrs would try some ginger capsules, safe, natural and non-toxic. I have friends that don't get sea sick when they have those. Same friends use them for altitude sickness as well.

BTW, how was the course?

The first 5 day's after the weekend, are the hardest....
