Caribbean / US Virgin Islands

Island Life on St John

Even on a Caribbean island, sometimes what’s happening inland and in town is just as beautiful and interesting as the surroundings. This was certainly true in St John, where local culture and island life added another layer of intrigue beyond its raw natural beauty.

    I love the pictures. My favorite place to go on vacation. On our last trip we had the donkeys putting their heads right in the car window – love the chickens running around and the tree frogs at night. The simplicity is great – like Vie’s menu.

    Interesting people/things – The person who owned the property across the road from Hummingbird Hill used to make his own charcoal. He would stack wood between metal sheets and slow burn – as I remember. Wish I had pictures of that.
    Glad you enjoyed your stay – Jim
