FRIGGIN HAPPY DANCE!!!! We will be back to STT SOON! Like next few weeks-soon! My fiancé no longer works at Officemax after 17 years. Crazy crazy drama from every single angle in our lives since Irma - but we're alive, still here, sticking it out, trying not to kill each other or other islanders but I am SO FREAKING EXCITED to get back to my favorite rock!!!!!

PLEASE let me know if you or know of someone who has a rental. We will be in STT this weekend and have a few to look at so far. We are looking for one bedroom - maybe two if the price is right. HOPING for $800 for 1bd or more of course for two. Not expecting anything included but must be northside. We are the BEST tenants ever. Always auto-pay direct from bank or pay early, quiet and OCD clean. Treat rentals like I would want my rental treated.

Cant wait to get back to my wata job doing design/photo/drone work on the side. Of course haven't really be able to work since Irma with no power or wifi. Yikes.

anything that's left should be pretty hurricane strong, right?

Have fun over there, I'm sure this will be an interesting time to move.

Tanks mike! I’ll keep at it for sure and will pop back over for our pier dive fixes. Snorkeld the pier today. Not great but still color. Looked hard for frog fish and seahorse but didn’t find any. A year and it’ll be back to its glory. For a macro gal like me the pier is the best dive in the VI. I’ll miss it for sure. Looking forward to this next chapter and will see what it holds for us. STT has always felt like home.

Thanks all. We found a perfect place, with not a good view... it’s THE view - Magen’s - out to peterborg and every down island with everything on my wish list - honestly can’t believe it and I was willing to settle for nothing on my list lol. I even got my vaulted ceilings and a HUGE covered deck! Our STX rental wasn’t covered and even with a sun sail it was too hot. I missed limin outside. We’re pretty much gonna live out on this deck. Can’t wait to see the whales this year and send the drone out to them! Found our apt in 48hrs. I am a firm believer that when it’s meant to be, it will be easy and STT has always been easy for me. STX was just a constant struggle for us, it is a great place but just not where I belonged.

We have been seeing so many old friends, big hugs and excitement that we’re back. Even the guys at Coki did a double take and came over to say wassup. My good friends Frank and Amy opened high dive bar, make sure you get there - great place! Love them and it looks like a lot of my hull crew is now hanging there. Someone PM me the skinny on Hull, curious. Was devistated to not get to hug Jr. RIP, such a sweet man. We always hung out at his truck before my night snorkels and had great chats.

Loving the views, the hills, feeing like I’m actually on an island, the new restraunts (and my old favs) and most of all how close everything is!!! I know in a year CA will be “far” again but that drive to Csted really sucked! Only took me 11 min from home to Havensight yesterday. Was awesome!

We finally got the generator hooked up last night. Hadn’t had it in 6 days including two in STX since it had to go on the boat. That was roughing it, we stank. There’s a BEAUTUFIL clear waterfall by creque damn that we rinsed off in and we live by the spring on STT so used that for a quick showers Now getting settled, painting and unpacking. Missed this damn rock so much. I.AM.HOME. <3

Did my first tour yesterday too! Was a blast and took this photo. This beauty was at least a foot across, and the biggest moon jelly I’ve ever seen, it was like the ocean welcoming me back.

Didn't know you were a photographer. As a fellow pro nature photog of 15 years, let me say: nice work! 🙂

Didn't realize you had been on STX... how long were you there?

So glad you found the opportunity to move you back to STT! I will always consider it to be ‘home’ and never felt anywhere close to that feeling on STX...everyone’s experience is different though, isn’t it? Best wishes for recovery mode and an exciting future back on The Rock!
