Good Afternoon! I hope that you all had a great weekend and are getting into this work week bursting with positivity and productivity! I did not get a post up earlier this morning because I thought there might be a decent amount to update after Governor Bryan’s press conference this afternoon. Unfortunately, there aren’t many changes to report on, but it sound like, with additional guidance in the future from the CDC, there could be on the horizon!
Every then and again we come across a home here on St. John that simply takes our breath away. Today we’d like to share one of these extraordinary spots with all of you. It’s located in one of the island’s most exclusive neighborhoods, and it happens to be looking for its next owner. Please take a few moments to check out Villa Carlota…
Hi all! Here’s a little feel good piece for you about an artistically talented fourth grade student from St. Croix. Annually, Google hosts a competition that challenges K-12 students to create artwork in line with a theme and a winner is selected from each of the 54 United States’, possessions and territories. The grand prize for one of these aspiring young artists who makes it to the finals is the opportunity for their work to be featured on the Google landing page….And a sizeable scholarship! The winner of the USVI Doodle for Google Competition this year, with the theme being “I am strong, because…,” is fourth grader Armani Harvey from Pearl B.Larsen PreK-8 school on St. Croix.
So, by the time he hits the fifth grade, Armani may be a world famous artist! But, he needs your help 🙂
Love City Car Ferries, Inc., the locally owned and operated company that owns and operates the Vic and Grand Vic car barges between Red Hook and Cruz Bay, launched an app this week that may make things a bit easier on the passage between Love City and Rock City! I know that this post won’t apply to a lot of you because MANY of you rent your cars on St. John while you’re here and don’t have to hassle with the car barge.
But for those of you who were not able to find a rental on St. John, and for those of us that live here and need to head to St. Thomas for grocery runs, doctors appointments and/or flights out, this app looks like it will make things a bit easier in the realm of navigating the sometimes unpredictable car barge schedule.
The Island Green “Two Tickets to Paradise” fundraiser ended on May 1, but not before giving one lucky lover of St. John an all-inclusive trip valued at over $10k! If you missed your chance on the draw for that raffle, never fear! You have FOUR more days to purchase tickets for a similar contest…But this time it is in support of the Animal Care Center of St. John (ACC) and all of the rescue pups and kitties on island 🙂
Last month, Interior Secretary Deb Haaland announced the addition of 16 new additions to the nearly 700 Underground Railroad Network to Freedom program’s historic sites. One of which is right here on St. John…
If you have ever visited St. John, you know that spotting our beloved four hoofed friends on the roadside or along the hiking trails is as probable as encountering a turtle at Maho Bay. The hundreds of donkeys on St. John who travel the island in packs of three to five or more can be spotted in the most unexpected of places and are SO friendly and gentle. Even so, approaching the donkeys and feeding them is a big no no and a mistake made at the expense of the health of the animals.
Good Morning Everyone! We have been the promotional partner with Island Green Living Association over the past month in an effort to promote ticket sales for their “Two Tickets to Paradise” fundraiser.

It’s a tequila drinking, taco eating, salsa dunking, mariachi dancing kinda Wednesday and the weather on St. John today is looking beautifully cooperative for a mid-day Margarita in the sun and sand.
