On bathroom doors, where?
Hint: It looks like this inside.

High season, by definition, has now ended, and everybody says it was a great high season.
Restaurants were busy. Retailers say thank you. Villas were booked up. Real estate folks showed a lot and closed a few.
Now comes low season. Which is really an oxymoron.
Spring, summer, and soon come fall are really the best seasons on St. John, yes?
When’s your next trip?

Nearly three years after construction started on a second gas station just outside of Cruz Bay, it is officially open for business.
The station is on the South Shore Road just before the Westin.
Regular is 10 cents a gallon cheaper than E&C. For now.

There’s a wave of beginning-to-end rainbows.
Here’s one from Bill Ryan, from his place at Sunset Ridge Villas. (Click on it.)
Bill’s email that accompanied this photo was also something you don’t usually hear.
“It was our last day. We were packed up and headed out and saw this. A day later we arrived home to have our neighbor hand us a still warm from the evaporator quart of maple syrup as a thanks for letting him tap our trees.”
Bill replies that they live on Grande Isle on Lake Champlain about 24 miles from the Canadian border.
“It’s about the size of St. John. There is a causeway to the Vermont side and a ferry to the New York side. Sometimes when people ask where we’re from, I just say ‘almost Canada.’”
Bill apparently also has a herd of maple syrup trees that migrated across the VT causeway.
