Fisherman casts net to catch sprat for bait

The first step in catching fish is to get bait. In this photo a fisherman is casting a sprat net for that purpose. He holds on of the lead weights in his teeth and cast the net wide open using his two hands. As the net opens in a circular pattern, he release the last weight held in his mouth – important to remember! Today he’ll be trolling for kingfish…

Frank Bay, St. John US Virgin Islands

Beautiful Frank Bay Sunset

Frank Bay drew a contingent of photographers and sight-seers yesterday afternoon for another spectacular sunset. At first it was disappointing as the sun sunk behind a bank of clouds. Some people left, but those that stayed were treated to a colorful panorama as the western horizon exploded in reds and yellows.

St. John Does Something Right

There’s no gas on Vieques. They ran out the day before yesterday and word is that a shipment might arrive today. When word gets here that the gasoline has left Puerto Rico on the barge, the gas lines will form.

Asking friends on the island about this, I would hear, “well you know how it is living on an island. We only have two gas stations and all our gas has to come in by barge from Puerto Rico”

But no, I don’t know. We pretty much always have gas on St. John. We only have one gas station and not only does our gas have to come by barge from St. Thomas, St. Thomas needs to get gas from somewhere.

I imagine it’s a matter of efficiency, and contrary to popular opinion, we must be fairly efficient here on St. John, at least when it comes to gasoline availability.

St. John Spring
I’m seeing the signs of the beginning of springtime on St. John. The leaves have dropped off the big Mampoo tree and new light green buds have popped up on every branch. In the morning there is a quite discernible buzzing from all the bees attracted to the pollen rich buds. The aloes are in full flower with their share of bees, but I haven’t noticed many hummingbirds this year. The mango tree has baby mangoes, the papaya tree has baby papayas, the banana plant has baby bananas and a beautiful white orchid opened up deep in the bush.
