Flamboyants in Full Bloom!

Flamboyants in Full Bloom! 5

It’s that time of year again…The rainy season (Although, we could use a few more drops–Do your rain dances!).  The time of year when the hillsides are BRIGHT green with flourishing flora, our cisterns are overflowing and the vividly bright orange flamboyant trees are in full bloom, dotting the hillsides with their breathtaking hues.  We have a few visitors with us this week…And literally every time we round a corner, I hear a gasp from the backseat in exclamation of the beauty of these breathtaking seasonal blossoms.  (Cover Image Courtesy Steve Simonsen Photography)

Sahara Dust Settles Over St. John

Sahara Dust Settles Over St. John 8

Good Morning!  If you’re on island right now, you might notice a crazy hazy atmosphere dimming the horizon line surrounding St. John.  That haze is, in fact, dust particles from the Sahara Desert that have traveled thousands of miles on the trade winds to settle over the Virgin Islands for a bit.  It’s not an uncommon, or a necessarily bad, occurrence.  But, it might cast a bit of a shadow on the traditional Caribbean sunset views and clog up the air ways just a bit!

Good Morning!  I hope that you all had a beautiful summertime weekend, wherever you are in the world 🙂  It has over and over again been brought to my attention that the demand for rental cars in the USVI continually exceeds the supply!  A few months back, we compiled a list of St. John based rental car companies and I felt it might be time for a re-share on that.  Especially with the reports I’m seeing out there about missed car barges, lost reservations and lengthy wait times for rentals on St. Thomas….
