Nope... didn't felt anything this morning. It was 16 miles in depth so it's maybe why.

Kind Regards,

We were staying at Mont Vernon in 1993 when the room was shaking about 11:00 p.m. and woke us out of a deep sleep!!! It was UNBELIEVABLE!!!! We will NEVER forget it! I called the desk and they said it was an earthquake! Wish we would have been there this time, also! We miss SXM! Haven't been there since June...

Well...the only way to get over missing the island is to book your next trip and then start counting the days smiling smiley

That's the only thing that saves me from the SXMX withdrawals....


Life is not a child's game of follow the Leader. Instead, life is more about finding one's own purpose in life....your life's plan, and then making a positive difference on earth.
