We returned about 2 weeks ago from STX. We are now in the Tundra of Chicago. Dreaming about the 82 degree weather.
I spent many hours on this site deciding on where and when to travel. I have to say with the help of ALL of you we made the correct decision.
We stayed in Judith Fancy in a villa right on the ocean. It is still vivid in our minds. I can smell the salt water, hear the ocean roaring and the turn of the waves. It is a constant roar, so wonderful.
We drove the island in about two days and the rest of the time my husband golfed while I vegged near the pool. We shopped a little. Did the obligatory run to Buck Island. The sunset cruise where you always meet people who know this or that person at home....Dinner out, our favorite being the Lobster Reef, we just happened upon this gem while out driving one day. We walked and jogged on Cane Bay Road near the ocean.
Why is the South Shore so empty?....beautiful but not too much commerce on this side of the island.
Not into the Casino thing. Did watch the Bears game at Cheesburgers with some of the locals who thought for sure the Bears would lose the following week to the New Orleans...what say you now? :-)....
Now to respond to the negitive comments on this site. I have only been to STX one time. I would move there in a heartbeat. (I would like to buy Willie's Wish (?) out on Cane Bay Road (I think that was the name of the place, right up the road from all the dive places). If not that there is a ruin of a house right on the water just a little further west, same road....left over from Hugo?
Never had a problem, just a parking ticket which we still have to pay....
To those of you who live there. Enjoy. You have a small slice of paradise, try and keep it that way.
We stopped in STT on the way home. Had been there on our honeymoon back in the stone age. We rented a car for the day. The cabs would have been too expensive....Crazy crowded. Five ships came in that day.....NUTS.
Thanks to all of you again.
See you next year, if not sooner.
