Our vacation this year took us back to Puerto Rico with a side trip to the Virgin Islands.  We hit a LOT of beaches including Magen's Bay, Trunk Bay and the insanely gorgeous Lindquist Beach on the northeast shore of St. Thomas. 
We pretty much had this beach to ourselves apart from a crazy local who spent a full hour talking to birds, rubbing herself with sand and "taking a bath" in the crystal clear water.

You can see the place where we stayed on the far left of the photo.

Radio-wise I really liked listening to Tradewinds Radio and Pirate Radio in the Virgin Islands and Alfa Rock in Puerto Rico.  They drive on the left in the VI so I tried not to change stations too often and concentrate on driving and not crashing our rental car.

"Isle 95" WJKC airs an Urban Contemporary/Hip Hop/Reggae format licensed to Christiansted, VI.
