Tide Pools Hike

Last weekend we finally did the Tide Pool Hike, which leaves from Carambola and ends up at Annaly Bay, famous for its natural forming tidal pools. The hike itself was beautiful but the beach was the real reward - not your typical white sandy beach, but very rocky - beautiful in its own way!

Let there be light!

Everyone had been talking for weeks about the famous Christmas Boat Parade held annually in Christiansted.. Saturday night finally came so Geoff and I went to check it out and what it was all about.
I think the entire population of St. Croix was there! It was busy, busy, busy - I was surprised we even got a parking spot!
The night started with the boat parade itself - contestants pay an enormous amount of money to participate and the fees go towards covering the cost of the fireworks which follow the parade.

I had to say WOW - some boats went all out with a cruzian flair - there was one boat that even had a mokko jumbie pinned all the way up high on it.

The parade went on for about 30 mins, and was followed by an amazing fireworks display!

Home - 3rd time lucky!

"All For the Better" - the name of our new estate and so, so true... We moved in about a week before Halloween and loving it so far! Our new landlords, Steve and Ellenor with their newborn baby are some of the nicest people we've met yet - and spoil us with fresh fruit and veggies from the garden daily - coconuts, papaya, eggplant, collard greens, bell peppers, mustard greens, name it.
