Live De Life Living in the USVI's
The good the bad and the details. We are moving to St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. We will try to keep a rambling record for anyone that ever dreamed of giving it all up and moving to the Islands to learn from or just laugh at.

Happy Easter Monday
We've been having some crazy weather, lots of rain (which is good for the island, and much needed) but not so great for the sisters visit. She's only been here once before when we first moved here and it rained the whole time so she's not having great luck so far. We were hoping to take the boat to Jost but the weather just didn't cooperate so we took the car over to St. John. We had a few hours of good weather so we were able to get the obligatory pics from all the overlooks, hung at Maho for a bit and stopped at the smoothie stand. Turned out to be a pretty nice day.
Oh, but I did get an April fool from the barge attendant. When we pulled up to the ferry gate the lot was packed. The attendant asked if we were here for the Tortola ferry? And I was like no, we want to go to St. John. And she said, I'm sorry that was yesterday. So I said "oh no" and then she started laughing so I finally got it. There isn't a Tortola car ferry, doh! Happy April's fool day :-)

Happy Good Friday
Happy Friday! Been a rainy kind of day, which is good. We need it bad. But it never really rained on the north side. I stayed home and enjoyed the down time.
Today is Good Friday which is an island wide holiday. Government also takes Easter Monday to make a nice four day weekend. I'm taking a vacation day Monday since my youngest sister arrives on Saturday so it should be a fun weekend. Jay is supposed to have Monday off as well so we can do a boat day. My sis has never been to BVI so we're hoping to get to Jost :-)

We have friends staying at Sapphire this week and so far they are loving it. I was looking forward to seeing what the condos look like since we've never been in them. They are staying in building E which is the last building, closest to the marina. They are on the first floor so you walk right out onto the beach and the sound of the waves are just awesome. It's a studio with full kitchen, one bed, one bath and sleeper sofa. There is a fake wall that you can pull out to separate the bed from the living area if you want. It's a little tight for two couples but they don't seem to mind (you have to get along really well lol). It's on a separate little beach so it's much quieter than the main beach. And it's just a short walk to the pool and main beach area so it works out perfect.
They got a rental car but I've been driving my car with them following me so that they can get used to driving. Yesterday I put 70 miles on my car going back and forth from my place to Frenchtown to sapphire... I don't think I've ever put that many miles on my car in one day!
Today another couple arrives that will be staying with us so the next week should be pretty wild lol. We plan to do some boating and diving if the seas calm down. It's been rough out so hopefully it calms otherwise our friends will be pretty disappointed. Jay has to work most of their time here so we're getting captain Gary to take us out on our boat for some morning dives. And then when Jay is off we can get the whole group out for a couple boat days.
