St. John Signs Making a Comeback!

Spotted Monday morning in Coral Bay!

One great thing about life on St. John is that everyone has a good sense of humor. Take our signs, for example. Chances are, you’ve been driving through Cruz Bay when you’ve seen the “Thou Shalt Not Park Here” sign beside the Catholic Church, or the “Don’t STOP Believing” stop sign right behind it. We’ve had a lot of good signs here over the years.

One of my favorites! (Pic from 2019)

Sadly, we lost a bunch during the storms and shortly after, and while many were replaced, they were replaced with the same old boring sign that basically describes what it is warning you about or alerting you to. What fun is that??? Well today, I am happy to share that someone has been giving a few of our island signs a makeover, and I absolutely love it!

I was driving to work the other day when I noticed that a “Speed Hump” sign in Chocolate Hole had been altered to say “Speed Chump.” And when I was in Coral Bay this morning, I noticed how someone recreated the classic Stinky Donkey Dip sign of yesteryear!

Love this!

One of my all-time favorite St. John signs appeared one day beside the dump on Route 104. It read, “Caution: Watch For Falling Goats.” And the best part is that there were usually goats standing behind the sign!

I couldn’t find a pic of this on my phone, but thankfully I found one on the internet!

If my memory serves me correctly, this sign actually made it through Irma, but it disappeared shortly afterward. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong. Either way, this sign is amazing, and I would love to see it again on island.

I know that many of you reading this have visited the island for many years, so I am curious… What is or was your favorite St. John sign? Feel free to email me a pic if you have one. I’d love to share your favorites!

      Sally, are you still in STJ? I remember you as a kind supporter of NWLC, where I worked for years. Did your house make it through the storms?

    Always loved the falling goat sign. Also liked the 12.8 mile marker, end of the road. Don’t see too many 12.8 mile marker signs. 😄
