Bambi in Paradise

My wife and I Susan were coming back to St. John where we went on our honeymoon on June 27th 1987. We stayed at Maho Bay campground then but it is now closed. We decided to stay at Cinnamon Bay campground because we thought it was so beautiful on our honeymoon. We went on our vacation with our 4 daughters on one last family vacation before our oldest gets married. This photo was taken the first night in paradise. The island began courting our daughters with the image of this deer the very first night. They now have a love affair with St John as we did for 28 years. Later that week we celebrated my wife Susan's 50th birthday at Miss Lucy's. It was a trip of a lifetime. Sharing paradise with the five woman I love the most it was
