An illegal government holiday! But no one has yet taken them to court.

Lots of tents going up for Easter camping. Oddest thing that they camp only during Easter week.*-)

I think it is odd too. Why is that? Why not camp year round?

Tradition. On STX people have been camping during this week for at least 50 years. My former landlord remembers going out to Davis Bay as a child, long before Carambola. I believe this is just one of those things that start and keep going. I would compare it to an annual family reunion.

Seven years ago, right after we moved here, we went to the beach during Easter week. There were tents everywhere. It was an isolated beach that we loved and we went a little farther up the beach and found a place to park. It wasn't a good place to swim so we walked back to the place we usually swam. In the clearing was 5 or 6 tents, porta potty, grill, cribs for babies, and hammocks. It was amazing. Almost a house outside. The people there welcomed us and told us that their family had been camping there for a few decades. They gave us food and welcomed us back to visit the next day. We went the next day and brought Popsicles for all the children. The family was huge. Not all stayed each night. Most of the elders went home or stayed with relatives. They came from all over. This was the most racially mixed family I had ever seen. Caribbean, white, hispanic, stateside black, danish, british, and one young lady looked and sounded like she was from India. It was one of my favorite experiences on St. Croix. I think we will go back to that beach this week and see if they remember us.
