Constant construction is the theme of this winter’s season on island. Dozens of new villas, hundreds of condo units and hundreds of timeshares are being built, from Cruz Bay to East End.
The sound of the previous night’s musical steel drums can give way when the sun comes up at 6:15 to the "beep, beep, beep" of Mack trucks backing up and air hammers breaking rock and ledge with their continuous "rat-a-tat-tat". Fortunately, the construction generally stops at about 4 p.m. Although we did hear one guy with a hyper work-ethic pounding rocks until 10 p.m. one Saturday night. (So did everybody else around the Bay!)
