Bill King’s been coming to St. John since 1991, when he visited
the VI’s to be with his son, then a chef on St. Thomas. That was
about 14 trips ago, King said in a conversation. But he hasn’t tired of St. John.
The latest vacation, in December, was
made memorable by a trip to the East End, an afternoon at Vie’s beach, a "fantastic" dinner at the Balcony, breakfast at the Donkey Diner, a scuba dive off Caneel, and a disappointing visit to the Ocean Grill at Mongoose Junction.
King is active in the St. John forum at Anthony Finta’s Virgin-Island-On-Line where he’s known as Bill in Va. Several other posters were on island while he and his wife were there,and they met up at the Beach Bar on a Sunday afternoon. "We knew all about each other instantaneously," because of the forums, King said.
