Sounds about normal for what we experienced at one of our three times there. Other two weren't any better. We wrote Sale and Pepe off a few years ago. Haven't tried new location but can't expect it's changed much,.

"** DUST WARNING; THOSE SUSCEPTIBLE REMAIN CAUTIOUS **

The Minister of Public Health, Social Development and Labor, Omar Ottley hereby informs the public of a lot of dust ahead. People with pulmonary or eye conditions should take the necessary precautions. In distinguishing the possible symptoms from COVID-19, the latter has more systemic effects/symptoms; headaches, fever, sore muscles. Dust symptoms are usually limited to eye irritation, dry cough and shortness of breath especially in those who are susceptible. If in doubt, consult your General Practitioner."

Moe’s in charlotte Amalie is stocked. They have everything but at a little bit of a price premium.

Pueblo is hit or miss.

Down here now. Maho has no vacancy tonight. About 7 boats in Francis.

Around 5pm the entire caneel stretch had about 3-4 moorings open.

So sorry to hear that Rose Blackwell has retired from Simpson Bay Resort. Very happy for Rose, but what a loss for all SBR owners.

My family had both Moderna shots, 6 weeks later CVS tests documented positive for IgG antibodies. FYI....my mother inlaw had the J&J vaccine 2 months ago, a test this week showed NO antibodies, she is scheduled for another vaccine now.

I've been thinking over our options as we have a trip planned end of July but we're still waiting on my son's passport. Thinking about contingencies if we don't get it in time. One of them being bringing the boat over to the USVI. With 4 of us on the trip, figure 2 of us could go to BVI to bring it over. If we can't bring it back, I wonder if we could pay for that service just the one way. Seems that would at least reduce the costs? If it was just the $2k to move it back, that's still likely cheaper then other possibilities such as just being land based on PR or St John..etc.

Did you see the announcement about the BVI opening more ports for international vaccinated guests? This could possibly be the opening for private vessels. https://bvinews.com/three-additional-seaports-reopen-for-fully-vaccinated-intl-traffic/

Yes it is a mess.... Nobody wants to know my opinion on this, we cancelled current events for a reason! hammer hairy

Have read some of the "work arounds" or ideas. Will see what happens, but the cruise line industry in Florida is HUGE and then some.

I’m assuming not, but it really doesn’t matter since a person who is fully vaccinated can get COVID-19. Not a major issue if you are retired but if you are expecting to return to work it certainly is…

My sentiments exactly, Bahston! What doesn’t happen this trip will give you something to look forward to for the next one.
That’s my story and I’m sticking with it!!

Thanks, Jazzgal. Missed that the first time around. Sounds like it was just 'so-so', but I've always loved the scenery around there. And, yes it definitely helps knowing a little french there, as well as in Grand Case from past experiences. Even if you butcher it (like I sometimes do) they often appreciate the attempt ... and then speak to you in English anyway. If you ever happen to visit Martinique (on a day trip or a cruise stop) it's highly recommended to speak some french there.

It must be for private boats and day charters. Why else would 4 ports be open to International visitors when the International ferry's are only running to Road Town? I think this is a big deal but once again, we have to interpret what we just heard.

Thanks for the info on how these shows are created. Didn't realize that they were done after the fact i.e. after the "stars" had already made a purchase. I guess that requires some acting skills. Anyway, since I can't get back the SXM right now, it is nice to have a look at the island. smile

We went to Pinel yesterday and learned that Yellow Beach is closed with most of staff on vacation from June 14 to July 9. Karibuni will be more crowded than usual.

We had heard ferry starts now at 9:30 - I was skeptical, but we got there a little before 9:30. First ferry left a few minutes before 10. Still 10 euros or 12 dollars for the round trip. Last ferry was 4pm.
