Saint Croix Sunsets Soothe The Soul – Wish You Were Here?

Saint Croix Sunsets never disappoint, a fact we’ve made plain on more than a few occasions. This particular sunset, though, was especially soothing to me.

It was a Sunday in August 2021, though not just any Sunday. My 50th birthday was just a few days away. That made this Sunday the last Sunday of my 40s.

It was pure coincidence that I just happened to be back home in St. Croix. Ironically, the last time I celebrated my birthday in STX was for my 40th.

Uncommon Caribbean was just over a year old. My twin boys were only seven years old!!

Time, like that boat speeding across the waves, most certainly does fly by… FAST.

So much has changed in the past 10 years that it’s hard to wrap my head around it all sometimes. Am I really that old? My kids are seriously leaving for college soon? I’ve been living outside of the Caribbean for how long?

I suppose that the questions that come with aging are never easy to answer/come to grips with.

Here at Dorsch Beach on that special Sunday, enjoying the last of the Saint Croix sunsets in my 40s, though, I felt at peace about those questions. I felt at peace about it all. 

Wish you were here..?
