Continuing on the “better late than never” theme, here are some more photos from our Christmas vacation in St. John.
Not only do you have to drive a car with the driver’s side on the left on the left side of the road, but you have to look out for all sorts of things crossing the road. There were donkeys, chickens, and goats everywhere. This was a bit of a traffic-jam situation caused by a group of goats crossing the street.

It seems that the locals on St. John do have a decent sense of humor. All of the “dip” signs had some extra words added for comic value. This was my favorite. If you can’t read it, it says “Stinky Donkey… Dip”. That was our green rental Jeep out in the distance on the side of the road. (Leica M9 with Summicron 35mm f/2, edited in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom)
So this one requires a bit of back-story. The house that we rented had a lime tree hanging over the main courtyard. I am not sure that we were allowed to take the limes off the tree, but on the other hand there was nothing saying that we couldn’t. By the end of the week we had picked all of the low-hanging limes, and this was one of them. I sure hope the owners don’t like Vodka and tonic or margarhitas as much as we do.

It is winter right? What would winter be without a snowman? Or at least a sand snowman. (Konica Hexar RF with Leica Summicron 35mm f/2 on Fuji 400H film)
