Well folks, the plan for today was to tell you how dry the island currently is and how the donkeys need a little help from us. But guess what? It’s currently raining! And it hasn’t rained in forever! So hopefully this fixes the problem. But here is what I was planning on chatting about today…
So for those of you who are lucky enough to either be on St. John now or have been over the past couple of weeks, you’ve probably noticed how dry and crunchy the island is. That’s because we have not had measurable rain for weeks, if not a month or so. (But again, it’s raining a bit now! Yay!) You can notice the dryness nearly everywhere on island, although the crunchiness is definitely more noticeable out on the East End and in the Salt Pond area.
So because we have not had any rain, the poor donkeys are getting thirsty. This has prompted several to wander into Cruz Bay to search for water. Fortunately some good samaritans have put out buckets of water for the donkeys along Centerline Road. (The pic above was taken last week at the Coral Bay overlook.)
So, despite the fact that we are currently getting some rain, it’d be awesome if you can help give some water to the donkeys. If you happen to pass one of these buckets and have some extra water in your Jeep, please consider donating some. And if you happen to be over at Maho Bay, please consider watering the newly planted palms as well. They’re located on the west side of the beach where the pavilions used to be, and I’m sure they’d appreciate the love to.
That’s all we have for you today folks! It’s all about keeping the donkeys and baby palm trees happy today! Have a great one everyone!
