We left the condo at 5:30am to attend sunrise service. The moon was still pretty high in the sky but we were excited to share and celebrate the resurrection of our Lord!
Church was held at the Judith’s Fancy Sugar Mill. It was the 43rd year, they had held Easter Sunrise service.
Easter service included a 9 year old INCREDIBLE singer and a Pastor and his wife that I could have listened to for days.
It began to rain for a few moments and afterwards, the clouds parted for a spectacular view.
Becky had wanted to surprise us with the steel drum player that had participated in the sunrise service for many many years. We noticed in the program that he would again be attending but mechanical difficulty left him stranded. The service proceeded with disappointment.
Near the end of the morning, the pastor prayed and during the prayer, the steel drums began to play from the back of the seating area. Becky and I looked at each other and she mouthed “he’s here!!” The morning was filled with beauty and wonder of such a beautiful place. It was filled with friends and fascination and an overwhelming experience. But the best part of the morning ? The celebration of our Lord and Savior. The one who died for us and rose again. What a glorious morning it was.
We returned to the condo and had bacon, eggs, cinnamon rolls, OJ and coffee.
Soon after, we headed to the beach/pool area and enjoyed a few hours of pure relaxation.
Easter dinner was the most memorable meal of the weekend. Hotdogs, deviled eggs, pork and beans pickles and Oreo cookies for dessert. The dinner of champions and it was perfect.
Easter concluded with an evening kayak tour of St Croix’s Bioluminescent Bay. One of only seven super glow biobays left in the world. The St Croix Biobay was a great way to end a fantastic weekend.
Thank you Glenn and Becky for inviting us into your home away from home and for your friendship. Here is to our next adventure together.
