Fantastic turnout! Especially being middle of summer! I've been here 15 years and it feels like St Croix is on the rise. Nothing in particular really. Just lots of happy people out enjoying themselves and spending money.
Jump Up last night
there did seem to be a lot more people than the last jump up i went to last year. not as many stores of course, since it seems half of them were closed. we did not see many of the faces we used to see at jump ups though and that was kind of sad
went to small world and the owner was wonderful. went to a few other stores. we were actually there for about 3 hours, not bad considering the last one we went to , we were back home within 2 hours
I had a great time and agree that there seemed to be a ton of people.
But what was with the obnoxious helicopter hovering around for WAY too long?
i heard it was filming stuff for the amazing race which was in stt???
No, they were filming an upcoming HGTV show Caribbean Life! My house I am currently leasing was one chosen, but, because the homeowner and I have the walls of this house covered in what they called way too much "local" art, they would need too much time to remove it, repair walls, get permission from all the local artists or if they blurred it in the filming, it would've been too distracting. They shoul be filming here on STX all week! I'm just glad they didn't film here, but, since I don't own the house, I wasn't involved other than getting it ready for a showing!
