St. Thomas USVI or Bust: 2013! – Day 6: Observations On a Cruel Beach.

A couple of points I’d like to make: If you live on an island and enjoy indulging in their beaches, I totally understand. And if you have a dog (or many) and like to take your pet to those beaches, again, I completely understand. However, if you have a dog and want to enjoy the beach, perhaps you should consider not leaving piles of dog crap all over the place! You don’t need to take your pet’s poop home with you and sleep with it under your pillow, but do you have to let your dogs dump all over the place?! You use the beach too! What the hell is wrong with you?! I’ve seen more dogs on the beaches of St. Thomas in less than a week than I have in the last…lifetime of going to St. Thomas and I have never seen so many assholes (and I not referring to the dogs anymore). Do you shit all over your own house? Second point. I’m absolutely thrilled that you have no body issues. Really, it’s great. But I have to say, if you are over 50 AND over 250 lbs., please reconsider the skimpy bikini. I’m positive there are people who will pay good money to watch you online strutting your stuff. I, however, will also pay to not have to see it live while I’m trying to relax in the sun. Despite these issues, I had a nice time in the sun and swimming with a sea turtle. Denizen of the day: The Caribbean dove that I have not seen many of this trip but who makes a delightful cooing sound and has on occasion floated down next to me to say hello and eat some of my lunch.
