What do you love about the Virgin Islands?
from our trip last year:
the beaches - i love how you walk to any beach and it is just absolutely beautiful.
the people - super nice to help out a tourist, and to answer questions about prospective jobs when we move there
the food - enough said.
people are patient, laid back - unlike here where i live where people are pissed off at waiting at taco bell for 20 minutes and drive like maniacs cutting people off right and left just to be ahead by one car.
hiking trails in st. john.
no big, chain stores/markets/coffeeshops
we will be making our way down to the USVI starting in December, sailing from California. Can't wait.
Bumping this up!
Lately I'm loving all the mangoes! Also our papaya trees are stocked!
Getting enough rain to keep things green. Got some weather coming through this weekend. Should be good for some surfing an kiteboarding!
Loving the community! My son went to bush skills camp with Montessori and Mount Victory Camp. He had a blast! Made a bow and arrow from bamboo, learned how to start his own fire, learned about the bush and move stealthy through it! Awesome program. After that was sailing camp.
Can't forget about the free Tae Kwon Doe classes with Senator Positive Nelson. One of the only Senators I know that does something for the community especially the youths. My son is now a yellow belt!
I love the shear randomness of what you will find while shopping. I'm being completely serious. Just today, I was looking for Krab meat.. couldn't find it but found regular crab meat and my wife randomly found japanese smoked river eel, which is her absolute favorite. Yeah it cost my $26, but happy wife, happy life. I will probably never see it again. I love it
Some good ones Pammerjo
As many problems as we have here with politics, I had a moment of appreciation the other day. Was in the Home Depot parking lot and saw one of our senators and he greets me with a big smile and goes:
" Hey Mattchew wha going on? Good to see you."
Gotta love that small community vibe.
