POStCArDS from St. John

I was waiting for Zeus to finish his tennis games today in the outdoor bar to Caneel Bay. Three of these guys were apparently resident beggars. They are not small. These things were at least two to three feet big.

They LOVE the cherries and orange slices that people get in their mixed drinks. 

I had a Red Stripe so I was safe. No interest in me. Another patron was having a salad and he tried to tempt one of these gorgeous lizards with a pepper, no go, spit it out and glared at the guy. So, he gave him a piece of watermelon. Bingo, new friend made.
I, of course, didn't have my camera with me so I had to resort to taking a picture of an actual postcard in the gift shop. 

Of course, if I had had my camera with me you would also see picture of the six local donkeys that wander around the property, the mongooses that run around practically over your feet and the deer. 

Now, you have to wonder who brought the deer to the Island?
