A Weekend Getaway to St. Croix with Spirit Airlines

https://www.adventurouskate.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/DSCF3008.jpg

I visited the Florida Keys because of Bloodline and Fire Island because of Baby-Sitters Club #76: Stacey’s Lie. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil brought Savannah to life for me.

There was a line that read, “For example, in Louisiana, we serve larger, sweeter cakes. Here, people want to linger.” It’s funny how I’ve always remembered that. People want to […]
