The days became weeks and weeks became months; is this the new normal?
We had to change our life plan! We reevaluate and restructure our business and are still doing this.... BUT we are so lucky, our friends, staff and even government have all come together during this difficult time and they have certainly made it “better”.
It’s made us realize we are ALWAYS fortunate to be on beautiful, peaceful Saba.
I liked my life before the virus more, but it isn't bad now either!
Besides it being a big emotional challenge without tourists and our steady fans coming to Saba. Saba has been the same! We have been living Covid-19 FREE since May 2020 (with a few people testing positive in quarantine), we have had 6 covid-19 infected people, of which non passed away.
Businesses, shops, banks, even dive shops have been open. While the change was strange (only having locals to cater to), it was a fantastic feeling to walk around without a mask and not worry about distancing rules!
Restaurants are open, some have adjusted their menus, and the bars are still having a good time throwing parties.
Besides our weekly TGIF at Tropic’s Café – ‘Tipsy Goat Bar’ - we also had our annual New Year’s Eve White Party and fireworks display. We are always celebrating life daily and having a great time!
Fortunately, our staff has remained with us! We’re deeply grateful for a government subsidy enabling some of our team to stay home with pay, and others approved to work a few hours a week.
- Wim and Johanna have been managing the property and > > > we got a new PUPPY!
Hermès is his name and a total joy… while being a puppy terror!
There you have it - Some of our quick and in-depth news to re-connect with you all.
Saba is doing fine! We’re just patiently waiting to welcome you home!
