Reputable Member

Hello everyone it has been such a long time since I have been
on this board!
How is everyone?
What is new on the islands?
How is our favorite Secret Harbour, I read the post about changes.
St. John.?

Looking forward to visiting soon maybe mid summer but need lots of new advice.

Meantime, have been going to Providenciales in Turks and Caicos the past couple of
years so any advice you need let me know
HOWEVER we REALLY miss St. Thomas!
Ginger and Steve

Max? are you still here? Paul ???

Hey, Ginger! Paul has been gone quite awhile. I believe he is pretty happy in his new life. Lots of new advice, huh? I thought all our old advice was still good! 😉

Hello Ginger,

It has been a while, welcome back to the board. 🙂 New things on the island... well... when last did you visit?

Noche is now Betsy's; good spot to have dinner and play some pool or some darts.

You might drop Max and Paul an email to catch up. Max posts once and a while; its been a few months. Paul moved back to the states.

Morning Ginger. Yup East Ender and Islander are both right. I did move back to the states, primarily because of a suspected serious health issue that thankfully, once it was checked out, proved to be a non-issue! I'm very seriously into watercolor painting now and should be putting something on line very soon: I expect it will be something like Basten Studio or some such thing.

Happy to 'hear' your voice again.

East Ender - I miss Secret Harbor. As you know it was 'my' beach since I lived just around the bend via the road across the top, and I felt I knew personally some of the fish I would check on each time I snorkeled in that lovely spot.

Islander - I love the new design of the website. It is really Fresh and Clean looking, and very modern. My kudos to you and to Ansen.

Ginger I hope you are able to finally retire and that Steve is able to work though his own retirement so you can both finally lead the 'real' life you want.

STT new things:
Yacht Haven Grande is pretty new and very nice! I feel it's a must see! Three restaurants there, Fat Turtle, Wikked, and Grande Cru. The grounds are beautiful.

Restaurant 13 is getting rave reviews and I will be going tonight to ck it out!

Lots of road work also going on down by Yacht Haven, hopefully this will prove to be a good thing, we'll see.

Paul, were your ears burning??:P Some of those fish have been asking for you... Did you hear that the swim platform disappeared without a trace in Omar? The flamboyant tree is waiting for spring to blossom and look like the photo you took. Hope you all are doing well! Miss ya!

sherri: From some of the posts, you better pack your hiking shoes for 13!! 😀
