1. You know I have something good to share if I am posting a story at 3 p.m. EST on a Monday.
2. This story is one of my famous “Seinfeld stories.” It’s about something and nothing all at the same time. Enjoy.
Something is happening at Caneel!
We drove past Caneel this morning during one of our News of St. John island tours and we noticed that several of the trees by the front entrance were marked with pink and yellow tape. This led me to believe that the operators of Caneel Bay were finally going to do something about the dead trees that have made the entrance look like Jurassic Park for the past year-and-a-half. We chatted about it for a minute, and then I continued on with the tour.
Fast forward to about an hour later. I received several pics from a friend who happened to be on Caneel property (legally, I’d like to point out). The pictures showed several workers on site who appeared to be removing debris from the property. How exciting is that??! The pictures aren’t great as it was raining at the time they were taken this morning. But we’re simply happy to have received them. Check them out:
According to our super sleuth source (and I am saying that super sarcastically, but with a smile), the work is being done by a local contractor who is being paid by the operators of Caneel Bay. Perhaps they are simply cleaning up the property. Perhaps, they are going to work to reopen the resorts. Who knows. All I do know is that stuff is happening, and that’s always a good thing.
So Caneel, I know I have given you a lot of flak for doing nothing since the storms. Today, I would publicly like to say kudos for finally taking steps to start cleaning up the property.
I will keep an eye out on what’s happening at Caneel, and I can assure you all that as soon as I know more, you will all know more.
On a separate note… We’re about to launch a pretty amazing raffle, so please stay tuned!!
