We have some fantastic news to share with all of you today … our beloved little slice of heaven is finally turning green again! There are leaves sprouting on trees and the grass is starting to turn green again. It’s so exciting!
As you all probably know, St. John has been in a pretty brutal drought for the past six months or so. But over the past few weeks, we’ve gotten some decent rain here and there, and the island has benefitted greatly. While we didn’t get the rain we expected from Hurricane Danny or Tropical Storm Erika, we did get enough to green up the place. See for yourself:

And here’s a pretty shot we took yesterday from the Caneel Bay overlook:
I did notice that Mary Point is still lacking some much needed rain, but it too is slowly getting green. It’s just not as green as some other places on island.
