The year is now 2018, and people who love the US Virgin Islands have been looking forward to it. Some are return visitors who are eager to return to their favorite vacation spot, while others are cruise ship passengers or travelers who are new to St. Thomas and can’t wait to sail, swim, and snorkel.
Perhaps, the local residents are the most glad that it is a new year and a time of renewal. The last few months of 2017 were rough with two category 5 hurricanes in two weeks. Rather than counting their losses, Virgin Islanders are counting their blessings and opportunities to rebuild better.
