Waiting on the Weather, Sipping Lime-In-Di-Coconuts

10 December 2009 | Christiansted, St. Croix
The weather is worsening so we hunker down in the very friendly little town of Christensaid, St. Croix and tackle our projects. Within a few days Louis has fixed the GPS (the antenna wire was bad) and the solar panel / charging issue, among other things.l I do many monotonous unimportant tasks not worth blogging about (think scullery maid). We visit our favorite bar from last year where we enjoy frothy "Lime-In-Da-Coconuts and watch the annual Christmas Parade of Boats, where locals and visitors turn their boats into floats with elaborate themes, lights, and decorations. They parade through the harbor while hundreds of locals and tourists line the shores, cheering for their favorite decorated boats. Very cool!
