Cinnamon Bay, St. John USVI – Island Lime Video

Seeing a lost love, if only for 30 minutes, is magnitudes better than not seeing that love at all. Parting may be bitter sweet, but the time spent will last you until the next encounter.

It may sound like I’m gushing about an old flame or quoting a sappy love novel but no. That’s they way I felt when walking the shore of Cinnamon Bay on St. John’s north shore. I only got to spend a precious few minutes at Cinnamon, just enough to breathe in the salt air, shoot some video and watch a couple string-rays glide through the shallows…and over my toes.

Cinnamon Bay is a long stretch of sand located on St. John’s famed north shore and just to the east of popular Trunk Bay. The bay is located in the Virgin Islands National Park and has good parking and plenty of facilities. While I was there it looked like they were doing a small archaeological dig near the beach just off the side walk from the parking lot. St. John has amazing history that dates way back to the Arawak and Carib Indians, then to the turbulent slavery and sugar era. I’m curious to know what they are digging for in the sands of Cinnamon Bay.

As promised, here is the Island Lime Video shot at Cinnamon Bay. Watch as the waves crash ashore, listen to the trade winds blow in from the sea and most importantly, imagine yourself there.

    I really like that you post these videos. I’ve been pulling up a video as an escape during the workday more and more lately. My only suggestion is that the audio doesn’t seem as “high definition” as the video. In the most recent batch of videos the wind really hits the microphone and takes away from the feeling of “being there”. I don’t really know how to solve this, I’m just leaving some feedback. Other than that, I’ve really enjoyed the lack of background music and narration and getting lost in the natural beauty of the location. Thanks for taking the time to make these videos.

    Thanks for the feedback Steve. I know what you mean about the wind. I just got a big fuzzy mic sock, so that will hopefully solve that problem on windy days. Glad you like the videos, places like Cinnamon Bay, don’t need any voice overs or corny background music. The amazing natural scene is all that is needed, nature at its’ most glorious. Cheers!
