Good Morning…I hope that you all had a lovely Thanksgiving yesterday! The weather was absolutely perfect here on St. John and, if you are here, I hope you had the opportunity to get out and enjoy it. And now, here we are on the biggest shopping day of the year with a lot of restrictions limiting the flood of holiday shoppers into traditional day after Thanksgiving shopping sprees. So, many shopaholics will revert to online shopping this year. A lot of you have asked how you can support local businesses while away from the island. Well, here’s a perfect opportunity….
“That virus” everyone’s been talking about for the last year may slightly alter this year’s Coral Bay Thanksgiving Regatta, but NOTHING will stop these dedicated sailors from continuing this beloved St. John tradition!
Good Morning! I hope this post finds all of you healthy, happy and ready to enjoy a day off tomorrow! In the meantime, enjoy the views and a breeze through of this beautiful and affordable Coral Bay villa.
Thanksgiving is this week and, if you’re on St. John right now, there is plenty to be grateful for! You may be planning to do dinner at your villa or residence OR may be entertaining the idea of dining out. Either way, there are plenty of options for enjoying a fantastic holiday meal AND a great day on the beach instead of slaving away in the kitchen.
Good Monday Morning Everyone! I hope everyone had a stupendous weekend. I have some not so great news to share this morning unfortunately. Early Friday morning, a Cruz Bay staple spot for local hangouts and cuisine was removed from the Port Authority parking lot across from the post office.
Some of you may not know that I have been off island for a little bit to visit family and take a little break. No matter how beautifully perfect the place you live is, there’s always a need for an occasional breather. And COVID lockdowns, shut downs and quarantines gave me the itch to get away. I had an opportunity to sail from Puerto Rico to Connecticut this summer on an absolutely incredible sailing vessel called Kai. And I took it. And I’m so grateful for the journey.
But, we returned home this week and I cannot tell you how good it feels to be back! I’m sure you all can relate when I say that there is nothing quite like having the sandy soil of St. John between your toes for the first time in a while.
Good Morning Everyone! We have a few updates from the BVI this morning. There have been a few adjustments made to their re-opening regulations and some exciting news from White Bay on Jost Van Dyke.
Well folks, if you know me, you know that I am VERY excited to be writing this post. The ban on live entertainment was lifted by the VI Government on November 9 and there are a lot of great options for live, and socially distanced, music on island right now!
Well folks, Thanksgiving is creeping up on us which means the Holiday Season is right around the corner. Many of you may look forward to this time of year for large family gatherings and re-connecting with your loved ones. Unfortunately, for many, the current pandemic may keep us away from these larger gatherings due to concern over the spread of the virus and the health of our more “at-risk” family members.
Due to all of this, 2020 might be the year that you finally take that holiday trip that you’ve been thinking about for a long while. With family traditions potentially on pause until a vaccination is widely accessible, a simple getaway to St. John in a private villa with your immediate family might be the holiday rest and relaxation you need.
