A Room for Two with a View

There’s a romantic in each of us that keeps a collection of treasured love stories in our memories. They may be places we’ve been or places we’ve seen in movies or read about in books or they may be completely imaginary. But we all know romantic when we see it.

Ten years ago, two guys from the mainland USA quit their real world jobs to pursue full-time careers as professional beach bums. They moved to St John, lived on a busted boat and ditched their dependencies on silly things like electricity and running water.

Importing Maywatch


When I first saw the 34-foot powerboat Maywatch in Yarmouth Harbour in the UK, I said “Miami Vice,” but Richard, my boyfriend who was on the brink of buying it from his dad, said, “No. James Bond.”

Artists' Corner: Diversity by Design

David Hill’s art is not easily defined by theme or genre. His work often varies from one piece to the next in an intentional attempt to inspire a creative flow within his art. Sometimes on his canvas, the brush’s soft bristles are dipped in oil-based paints and are used to define the smooth contour of a woman’s body. At other times, sh...
