Hello all, I’m back on island and wanted to give a quick update. For starters, internet is still spotty. There are several hot spots on island, thanks to some pretty amazing people, but the signal is not strong enough yet for me to upload numerous pics and video. It’s all being worked on, and I will share as much as I can as soon as I can.
I’ve been receiving a ton of emails regarding the future of tourism. The truth is – I don’t have any answers. Will St. John have tourism once again? Absolutely. But when will the island be ready for it? I simply do not know. I’ve been talking to nearly everyone I’ve encountered about this, and truthfully, everyone has varying opinions. I’m compiling their thoughts and will have that to all of you as soon as I can.
This Friday marks one month since Irma hit. It’s pretty amazing to see what’s happening here on island. People are working very hard. We all have the same goal here – to rebuild St. John. Will it be the same? Probably not. Will it be the new normal? Yes. And that’s ok.
I’m heading now to compile as much video as possible so I can continue to tell our story – the story of St. John and its incredible community of people. If there is anything you would like an update on, please leave it in the Comments section below. I will do my best to address as many requests as possible.
As always, thank you for reading and, more importantly, thank you for loving St. John.
