So why would you buy a house in St. John? Go back to the same place all the time? Get a house at the Jersey shore, now that would make sense.....The beaches in St. John are horrible....The locals hate Americans......How do you live without air conditioning and power......You know you can't drink the water......How do you deal with all the crime......You will never be able to retire there.....I can't live without the internet....Do they even have cars.....What about all the hurricane's and tidal waves...
St. John is one of those unique places, you either get it or you don't. I once told my best friend that it rebuilds our soul. The people are the kindest and most generous that we have ever met. The water is a crystal blue of so many shades that we can't count. The beaches are so soft and clean that they drain the tension through your feet. The breezes smell of sensual magic and we are like newlyweds again. It is safer than our little town in Pennsylvania. VT is 700 feet above sea level, our little town in Pa. is 250. If a tidal wave hits we would be safer at VT. As for hurricanes 12 to 18 inch reinforced concrete and hurricane rated glass. We are in awe every time we interact with the amazing diversity of life. We will keep coming back to our little rock as long as there is breath in us. My wife keeps a count in wakes ups. How many wake ups until we go back Baby?
So yes, we got suckered, and we enjoy every living, breathing, loving, laughing minute of it.
OOPS, WE DID IT AGAIN.....
If they thought we were crazy before, wait until they find out we bought a lot in Ditliff and are planning on building a Villa with a 4 minute walk to rendezvous bay......which will lead to "your feet will be so sore with that long walk!"
Have a Happy Holiday Season.
Brian and Lisa.
ps. Lisa's countdown is 24.
