In This Issue…
Welcome to the
“Endless Summer” Edition of
VI News ’n Views
For some, the term “Endless Summer” triggers a trip back in time to the classic Beach Boys compilation album. Others might be reminded of a fun-to-read novel or filmmaker Bruce Brown’s 1966 surfing documentary.
Especially for those living in northern climates, the prospect of endless summer is an elusive “living the dream” concept. But St. Thomas in August is a clear reminder that sweet warm sunshine remains in play all year long.
Ever wonder why seasoned travelers find August in paradise so inviting? One reason is the cooling trade winds. Generally at this time of year, it’s more comfortable in the Caribbean than on mainland USA. Another ‘plus’ is off-season rates at Flamboyan On The Bay Resort & Villas. What a bargain!
In this issue of the Coconut Post, you’ll experience “Endless Summer” in many places — including Eighty Five & Sunny. Of course that’s the typical year round weather forecast on St. Thomas. But it’s also the clever name of a brand new gift shop — newest addition to the colorful scene at Flamboyan On The Bay.
Located adjacent to RooT 42 Bar & Grill, Eighty Five & Sunny carries everything from sundries for travelers to quality gifts, original design T-shirts and beach bags. Frozen Tropical Popsicles are available, too. How cool!
Looking for a totally cool place to shop for groceries, fresh produce, deli items, quality meats and cheeses, wine, liquor, frozen foods, baked goods, brand name beverages, and more? Check out Gourmet Gallery. Newly opened in Havensight Mall after extensive renovations, the one-of-a-kind food emporium has been family owned and operated since 1983. Bigger and better than ever before, you’re sure to appreciate all that Gourmet Gallery has to offer.
For a dining out experience to savor, Flamboyan Resort recommends Surf ’N Turf Bistro. One of the newest eateries in paradise, proprietors and hardworking sisters Chadicia and Alisha Mellow bring to the table more than a decade of hands-on experience in the hospitality industry. The attractive eatery is housed in an historic downtown building offering premium meats, seafood, creative salads — and gourmet pizza, too.
Also in this issue, “Coco Bits” is spotlighting several classic rock performers who, once upon a time, spent endless summers on St. Thomas.
From shopping fun to dining delights — and so much more — St. Thomas in the summertime is endlessly appealing.
In addition to Coconut Post spotlighting slices of life in paradise, look for “Coco-bits” — tidbits of tasty info, island history, and fun-to-know facts scattered throughout the publication. Keep in mind here in the islands ‘views’ are visual — not so much editorial, LOL

Remembering V.I. Governor Melvin H. Evans (1917 – 1984)
The people of the Virgin Islands have the power to elect a governor every four years and also send a delegate to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives. During his long career, Dr. Melvin Herbert Evans served in both roles.
