This will be my first blog entry after taking a little low season break. Many restaurants have done the same, Caneel Bay Resort is closed and all over the island one hears this one or that one taking some time off to travel, take care of personal business or just plain cool out. The last few weeks the weather has been suburb. Clear blue skies, hardly any African dust, warm sunny days and perfect water temperature for swimming, at least for babies like me, that get cold easily.
Yesterday was one of those days, sunshine mixed with short scattered rainsqualls. A late afternoon squall even brought me a beautiful double rainbow, which I was able to photograph.
Most island residents are happy to see some rain. It keeps the hillsides green and cisterns full.
As they say here on St. John, “good t’ing!”
