Our Lady of Deliverance Procession

... the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in Charlotte Amalie, when we lived in St. Thomas in the U. S. Virgin Islands many years ago.

First night we spent in the cabin, cuddled up under blankets piled so high you could hardly move. We survived, but vowed we’d get some heat for the next couple ...
