Coral Bay is a quiet area of St. John that can be tracked over time by a few unique sounds.
To local islanders, the arrival of seagulls marks a time of celebration and rebirth, as young local birds begin to fledge their respective nests.
The Kestrel Couple that has lived above my rafters for 15 years revealed their offspring this very morning, 3 chirpy babies who are growing by the minute. And like the seagulls, every year like clockwork, their chirps mark a new beginning.
Another sound you can still set your calendar to are the Open Mic nights in Coral Bay. While the location has changed over the years, from Concordia to Pickles to Miss Lucy’s to YouTube, it is immensely comforting to see Lauren, Bo, Elena, and Otis welcome island artists and make the music we crave. Watch the Homebound Open Mic every Thursday here, and we look forward to seeing you at Miss Lucy’s on a Thursday “soon come.” Coral Bay is the place for live music.
