Who Says We Don't Have Seasons Here?

In the Virgin Islands, we do have seasons here.  Winter brings cool trade wind breezes, not much rain, ocean temperature of 78 and tourists.  With the tourists come their expensive yachts.

Here it is May and signs of Summer are already coming. After a dry Winter, our trees have lost much of their leaves. The ocean is back up to 80. We can find mooring balls again, the amount of cruise ships has dwindled and the yachts are being shipped to the Mediterranean for the Summer. Yes they actually ship this million dollar yachts. I was recently over in Crown Bay and saw this at the docks.

So I did a little research and came up with this article from the New York Times.

So, cheers to Summer, my favorite time of year, the weather is good and you get the islands to yourself!
