One of My Featured Trees



I love coconut trees. I love the way they look, the way they sound in the wind and I love especially where they are located. This is one of my favorite trees on St Croix. Can you guess where?


It's fun to take the fruit and chop it open to get to the water. The water mixes darn well with Gin too.

Here is another hint. See the tree in the above picture? Give up? Okay see the little pink and blue squares on the waterfront just to the right of that yellow building with the pier?

That my friend is the Fort Christian Brew Pub. It is the only place on the island to get a draught beer and a fresh craft beer. I personally know several famous drinkers on the island that have their name etched on a plaque there for drinking over 1000 of their fine beers.

Just to the left of that pink canopy is the coconut tree in the first shot.

I was sitting there last February with Gigi, Terry and Michael when I thought it would be good to remember this beautiful tree with a picture.

And here was some of that great beer that day after we para sailed. Okay...were were testing. Flying around make one thirty you know.

It's a rainbow of beer!

Wasn't it more like the bobbing around in a crippled boat, getting too close to the reef, waiting for the jet-ski to rescue us that made us thirsty?

Nice pictures!

You would be correct Terry.

So how close are you to 1000 Wreg?

Actually I'm most likely by my estimates into the count only maybe 75 beers there. Thousands on the island but limited there. The beers there are very full bodied.

Give me a break, Wreg. When you go there without us you drink girlie beers like bud lite or coors lite or miller lite - ugh!). Don't deny it either. I have it in my photoaudiographic memory.

Terry true. Those local brews are rich and I can only have one at a sitting. That is why the number is so low.
