It\’s our first day here but our third day of travel so I\’m calling this day 3.
We keep track of how many cruise ships are in port in St. Thomas because it dramatically impacts the number of people at various beaches, especially Trunk Bay. Today there were zero cruise ships so off to Trunk Bay we went.
We were saddened by the devastation. One of the reasons we love Trunk Bay is because of all the natural shade from the trees that line the beach and we had a favorite spot under our favorite tree. Unfortunately there are very few trees left. The bathroom and shower facilities are open but the snack shack and store have not reopened yet.
But we saw signs of new life everywhere. Small coral and sea fans growing under the water and new trees everywhere. So happy to be here! #stjohnstrong
