Love Sundays on Honeymoon

Love Sundays on Honeymoon, originally uploaded by captainjay.

Enjoyed a nice Sunday afternoon with some friends over at Honeymoon on Water Island. We had a little rain but once it cleared it was a perfect afternoon. I love spending Sunday's over there. Had a great burger at Heidi's Honeymoon Grill and then some frozen refreshments over at Joes Beach Bar. Jay scrubbed on the boat a little, trying to get it ready for the next group of visitors. Today he's changing the oil, pumping out the holding tank, and all that other fun boat stuff you have to do to keep it running. The first group arrives on St. John this week so let the games begin! :-)

Coming to you live from Hawksnest Beach, St. John. I get to work at the UVI St. John Academic Center today so I came over early to see a little of the island before heading to work. So I decided to just hang out at hawksnest for a bit and do a little reading. There was a yoga class going on when I first pulled up. Wish I had known that, I may have came earlier so I could join in.

Well this week was pretty quiet. No guests, so we're trying to get back into the routine. I started back on Jenny Craig, Zumba, willPower & Grace, the whole shebang. The last couple months of holidays and guests haven't been kind to my weight goal so I'm trying to jump start back into some kind of routine. It's only for a couple weeks though because we have more friends arriving next weekend. One group on St. John, one on Water Island and one with us. After that there are no more guests scheduled so I'm really going to kick it in high gear.

Jay has been super busy at work but we may get to run over to Joes Beach bar Sunday afternoon.

Hope everyone has a great weekend :-)

Happy Friday everyone! Took today off to spend the last day with my cousin and his wife. Going to hit a last few places and then off to the airport. It's been a fantastic week. Boating, eating, shopping, sight seeing, St. John, several beaches, and of course lots of rum. They're already planning their next trip back! That's what happens when you come here. You want to come back again and again until you just stay :-)

We have two free weeks, then round three arrives. Rednecks in the Caribbean soon come :-)

Have a great weekend!

Martin Luther King Day

Here is a little video of Will Kimbrough doing the "Ballad of Martin Luther King" Figured this was appropriate for the holiday. We saw Will at Court Street Bar and Grill in Pomeroy the year before last. If you don't know his music Google him.

It's Friday! And round two visitors arrive today! Yea! We're still exhausted from round one lol but ready for round two. This group doesn't have passports so no Jost or Willie T trips for them. But no worries. Plenty of beautiful places to go around St. Thomas, St. John, Water Island, Hans Lollick, you get the picture. I'm sure we'll be hanging out a bunch at Joes Beach Bar on Water Island (pic above) which is cool because we haven't been there in awhile. Watch out Water Island, here we come!

Hope everyone has a great weekend, I know we will :-)

Fun Times


We have had a great time with my cuz Angie and friend Theresa. We've packed as much as possible into four days, from partying in Frenchtown and Redhook, boat trip to Jost Van Dyke and Willie T, tour guide to the overlooks and Mountaintop and downtown shopping, and capped it off with a boat ride to Water Island, Joes's Beach Bar on Honeymoon bay and a trip around the harbor to see a great sunset. They leave today so I'm taking them to lunch hopefully at Fat Turtle so they can walk around Yacht Haven Grand and Havensight. But it's a 5 cruise ship day so depending on how crazy it is, we may just go to Island Beachcomber instead and avoid the traffic. :-)


The next group arrives Friday so that leaves us three nights to clean the condo, go grocery shopping and have dinner with our landlord who is also on island this week. Whew. But I love it! Bring it on :-)

Bubbly Pool

If you haven't been to the bubbly pool on the north east side of Jost Van Dyke, then you definitely need to check it out. It's a short walk from Foxy's Taboo at Diamond Cay. The trail is marked and easy to walk in flip flops. Bring a small cooler and hang out for the afternoon. It was a great way to spend New Year's Day.
