From all the Facebook posts, there seems to be a lot of calm water.

We know how fast that changes.

Did hear much needed rain today.

Wish I could help Carol but as you know we returned to our home last Wednesday. I brought back with me some great memories.....and covid. Tested negative last Tuesday, flew home Wednesday and started having symptoms late Friday. I assumed it was a bad cold so didn't test until Sunday morning. Yep.....came up positive. Am glad I got home O.K. but have no idea how, where or when I came in contact with it. Good news is I think I'm over the worst of it.

CaribLee--glad you made it home OK. Hope you continue to recover. We made a quick trip to Indiana a couple of weeks ago. I wore my mask in the airport, but not on the plane. I figure to wear it in the airport on the way down to SXM also.

Scuba--Somehow I thought you were coming home today, as you were asking what time that drill was planned at PJIA.

CaribLee,
sorry to hear you had covid but glad to hear that you are on the mend.
Get well
I am now back in the North. Funny thing today the temperature here is warmer then in Sint Maarten. Everyone is saying that we brought it with us.

Lucky you! When I return on July 6-7, I have to overnight. Decided to do it in DFW as I love that Grand Hyatt.

I'm more concerned about possible flight cancellation than I am the weather. CHI is the one I wouldn't go through.

So happy for you, Linda. I can’t imagine five weeks on island although I’d love to try it at least once. Wishing you a wonderful trip filled with all the things you love. Looking forward to and hoping for weekly details of your stay if you’re of a mind to. You do those write-ups so beautifully….….😊😊


Respectfully,

pat

I know how to suck up when I need to.

And you really do such a great job writing about this place we love. That was most sincerely stated. 😊😊

Thank you, Pat. I did just post about La Villa Hibiscus, which I visited last November. Hopefully that will make up for some of my slothfulness.
