Sunrise, coffee on the pool deck or gallery. Then off to my project out west. Maybe a stop by Detergent Depot to pickup some 2x4s. Wife heads to work. I garden and knock wood for a few hours, drink lots of water. Head back to condo before noon. Wife home early afternoon and naps, me too. Time to chill, in pool or under fan, read some. Cook dinner, eat, sundown me too. And my old Curcian buddies assure me the Sun will rise tomorrow so the same routine will be followed. Maybe a stop for gas, love the pay at pump of Gas City 1&2. And for any quality building supplies an excursion to Gallows Bay Hardware, great folks down there.Cheers

Let me guess. Your first 3 months in VI. By next year your vantage point may adjust quite a bit.

I believe you're off by several years.

My wife and I just made our first year through. Wouldn't change a thing so far.

Life is indeed different here but don't let some of the posters on this board discourage you.

It's what you make it and it sounds like you are making it good

Its not a secret that I prefer STT over STX but we just got home from 3 and a half weeks abroad. I got teary eyed when I walked down the ladder off the plane, the smell of the salt air, the cool breeze, driving through the rainforest.... HOME. With all its faults and its issues for me there is still no place like the VI. I also dove like 8 times last week lol! Missed dat WATA! What a beautiful couple days its been here too!

Good night, slight deviation today needed some food, eggs yep still had some but the boat just came in Sunday. Got some club soda (expensive) to go with my cheap vodka as well. Love Food Town, small congenial and good product rotation. Slow "season" now so product selecion limited, but basics they got, rice beans salt sugar flour onions rum vodka, all is good. Oh, welcome back A&A enjoy your trip? Cheers

I have been here for a little over a 1 month and my wife a little under a month and so far we love it. As everyone said it is much different that the states. We are starting to settle in to island life. I have been working for 3 weeks now and that is going well. We got all over our things we shipped from home without any problems. We have been doing a lot of exploring and trying out beaches. There are so many, we have been to about 12 so far. My favorite is Cane bay and I think my wife likes Shoys. The beaches in Fredrickstead are also very nice. This board was very helpful with our move. We came for the fist time on April 20th and then made the move mid May. It was a lot of work but we think it was worth it. We will make a decision in April or May to decide if we are going to make it permanent. Thanks again to sll the regular posters and those who have help ed with private messages.

I prefer STT, too, if only because there are actually some 20s and 30s over there. St Croix is just old white people, married white people and locals.

My routine: Wake up at 5:30 a.m., make some coffee, watch the sunrise, drink the coffee that's just finishing, read the news, do e-mail, jump in the pool, go back inside, brush my teeth and do that stuff, get another refill or two of coffee, watch some TV, crank out some memos to staff on the mainland, drive down to the gas station and get the two local newspapers, drive back, eat breakfast around 8 a.m., finish work by noon, sunbathe until 2 p.m., come back inside and catch up on emails and do work, eat dinner at 4-5 p.m., go for a walk around 6:30 p.m., do some e-mails and then go to bed around 8-9 p.m.

boredinstcroix - with that schedule no wonder you're bored.

"St Croix is just old white people, married white people and locals."

Too bad you find those population segments so wearing/boring. Maybe you should get more involved in the community and stop compartmentalizing people with such glittering generalities.

If I wanted to hang out with people my parents' age or grandparents' age, I'd fly them down. At least on St. Thomas, there are some attractive 20-something or early 30s women who have never been married and don't have bastards.

Why do the generalities glitter? Seems to happen a lot on this forum.:D

They sometimes get clustered together so tightly that the friction creates a veritable glow.

It's 2016.......Try online. "Bored 20 something male looking for bored 20 something female. Book a flight to St Croix" The cost of the flight will filter out many.

I found taking or auditing a course at UVI a non-boring way to meet all kinds of people.

Well surely the world is your oyster, you seem like such a peach.

He's not interested in meeting all kinds of people - just equally vacuous, "20-something or early 30s women who have never been married and don't have bastards." Such a cute turn of phrase he exhibits, bound to see him do well on life's journey.;)

You don't have the equivalent of the RedHookers in STX?
