Hurricane Dean

We were spared by Dean, but the waves were huge. Everyone in St. Croix takes hurricane preparedness very seriously. I guess Hugo is still a very real experience for everyone that lived through it. We filled our cars with gas, we got cash out, and we even started to board up the house. The winds were strong, but nothing more than a few big gusts. The waves were fabulous and especially on the west side. Ethan braved the waves with a boogie board, but decided that he needed a bit more practice in smaller waves first.

Ominous Clouds and Surfers taking advantage of the swell.

Kathy and I just chillin'.
