When Becky moved to St. Croix for her job, we spoke often of a visit.
If it’s not on the calendar it doesn’t happen……..so a trip was planned for Easter weekend!!
Plane tickets were purchased, a rental car reserved and fun things were planned.
Our flight left from Orlando International Airport with a short layover in Miami before landing in St Croix around 2:30 Friday afternoon.
Look at that water!
How fun it is to see your people.
A quick stop at the condo and off to Christiansted.
St. Croix was hit by Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017 both Category 5 storms within 2 weeks of each other. Becky is here working to help with recovery and restoration of the public utility and roads.
As we flew over the island there were many blue tarped roofs as well and obvious destruction caused by the storm. The island is slowly recovering.
We walked the streets.
We fed the Tarpon hotdogs.
I love love LOVE old buildings, brick laid streets and just plain old stuff.
These steps led to the front doors of a church built in 1734. I can’t even…..
I don’t know what this building was but I needed to hug it’s beauty.
The stairs that led to nowhere
Becky has made us reservations at the Wardroom, a restaurant located upstairs at the Hotel St. Croix.
Inside the hotel was the first caged elevator ever in St. Croix. Just look at the brick wall 💜💙❤️
Steve’s dinner included a pork chop from The Flintstones and Becky spoke love to her ribeye. Obviously we were hungry .
Our first day was a huge success and tomorrow is going to be so fun!
We have to pick up our snorkel gear at 9am!!
Happy Easter Weekend,
