Videos and Pics from last week

Postby longingstjohn » Sun Dec 03, 2017 10:09 am

A few VIOL friends asked for pics asap, so here you go.

We were down last week. Putting up a bunch of pics and videos over the next few days. Easier to put up stuff on our FB page than the web page. Will put up thoughts on island and recovery.

Just to be clear, we own Villa Tesori, so before someone claims we are evil villa owners pushing a non ready island, we have been clear in our indications of what the island is like to every future guest. It has changed, but not all change is bad.

Condensed version. Island is doing well. So well the linemen, aid and relief workers are bringing down their families and friends to visit and vacation.

Everyone is doing an amazing job. Worst thing i could say is that connectivity is spotty. Non existent in nearly everywhere but Cruz Bay. Even there it is slow.

Ironically, power was restored to Villa Tesori hours after we left for Pennsylvania. Even without power St John is better than PA. Just my opinion.

Gotta catch up on other stuff so will it will likely take me a week to get everything up.

Thanks for posting those videos and your honest but hopeful comments. I think the fact that linemen and emergency workers are inviting family to ST John says a lot. We are coming with adult children and grandsons in April and It looks like we are staying near your Villa. We are in KLein Bay. By the way, Villa Tesoro looks fabulous.

Thanks for the videos. Your comment about St. John without power is better than PA made me laugh. I love were I live but i think I would take St. John without power also. :lol:
