Editor's Letter

Here’s looking at you, Mother Earth.

This month, we celebrate Earth Day—the one day of the year dedicated to loving the place we all call home. Living in the Virgin Islands, surrounded by all of nature’s splendors, it’s hard not to celebrate her beauty every day. Acknowledgement is not, however, going to be enough to preserve the environment.

Which Flag to Fly?

“David, could you pass me the flag?” I asked my boyfriend’s stepdad as we prepared the powerboat for a daytrip to Cooper Island.

“You mean the ensign!” David, a ferry captain on the River Solent for the past 40 years, replied as he handed me what I now know is the red ensign—a plain red flag with the Union Flag in the upper left-hand corner....

An Uninvited Guest Slides into the Virgin Islands

On a bright and sunny morning a quarter century ago, workers began unloading cargo from a ship docked at the Sub-Base container port in St Thomas. Quietly and unnoticed, a small red and orange snake slithered out of the stacks of lumber and disappeared into the bushes of its new-found home. Thus, another exotic animal became established in the ...

Island Materials

Some materials are less suited to the islands than others. Wool comes to mind. And leather. But other textures and textiles are perfect for island life.

Rum the Old Fashioned Way

A couple hundred feet from the beach in Cane Garden Bay, the Callwood Distillery exists as a transport back through time. Located on what was once known as the Estate Arundel, the distillery still produces rum almost the same way it was done more than 300 years ago. Outside, soiled stonewalls bear the scrawled Callwood name, and cane trees grow semi-topp...
