Jay got another Saturday off...WooHoo! That makes three in a row. Lovin it. So we went for a sail with friends and ended up on Jost Van Dyke. Never gets old :-). So at the moment I'm chillin' in a hammock, listening to Kenny, enjoying a cold beverage while listening to the water softly caressing the white sand. Priceless :-)

Wednesday night Deb and I went to an Art's Alive event at Tillet Gardens/Jack's Wings. It was Tom Chapin, Harry Chapin's brother. It was a last minute decision to go and turned out to be a nice evening. The music was good, and believe it or not the service from Jack's was to. The first set was more family friendly as there was a large group of school children there. Then the second set was more folk/rock and roll including a cover of Cat's and the Cradle. It's always impressive to see musicians that have played together for years. We sat about 20 feet from the stage. As an added bonus Sandy Chapin, Harry's widow, co writer of Cat's in The Cradle, and a resident of St John was in the audience as well.

Out for a sail today on Far Cry. It's a beautiful day. Don't really have a destination in mind, just knocking around and seeing where the wind takes us. Brought food and drinks so we may not even go anywhere, which would be just as fun. Tacked by Lovango (a little island between St. Thomas and St. John) and thought I'd share The Love Shack. It's a rental villa that comes with the use of a boat if you want to go to St. John. Check out their web site if you get a chance.

I went to the "All Night Strut" production at the Pistarckle Theater with some girls from my Zumba class last night. What a fun show. Our Zumba instructor, Joni, was one of the dancers in the show so that's why we got together to see her perform up on stage. The show is set to the music from the 30s and 40s and the dance routines were fun to watch. The show officially opens tonight and plays for three weekends. If you're on island and want to see a fun show, then check it out. Last night was the preview show and it was a packed house with standing room only. We were the last ones in the door so we had to stand in back. But that made it more fun since we got to dance the entire time :-)
Synopsis from The Guide to Musical Theater
A classy, sassy musical celebration of the 1930s and '40s, The All Night Strut! struts its stuff in a two act bonanza of the way things were during the depression, World War II and the post war boom. From the funky jive of Harlem to the sophisticated elegance of El Morocco and the romance of the Stage Door Canteen, this is an evening filled with jazz, blues, bebop and classic songs. An international hit, The All Night Strut! has delighted audiences old and young with its sublime music and sheer energy. Famous songs include "Minnie The Moocher", "In The Mood", "Fascinating Rhythm", "Hit That jive, Jack" and "As Time Goes By".

Happy Friday! Jay and I are both of today, so we're out sailing with some friends. It's a beautiful day, sun is out, winds are just right, it may be a Jost day. Regardless of where we end up, it just feels great being back out on the water. We'll post a pic later of some beautiful beach :-)
