a little over a week ago, there was a nice raging beach party on water island. seven DJs played on honeymoon beach, from noon til sunset. it was a sort of end-of-season/going-away-party for a lot of the yachties that left the island last week. but everyone was there.
i went with a couple of my friends around noon. the beach was pretty still when we got there. and then more and more friends trickled in. by mid-afternoon, the sand was quaking.
we walked up and down the short stretch of beach, greeting everyone we knew over and over again. even after 6 months of living here, it's pretty surreal to me that i can recognize the majority of people at a party on a random beach in the virgin islands. there were no tourists there that day. just a lot of happy friends enjoying a sunday in the sun.
