I have been reading the comments in the Source concerning Salomon Beach.
For the past six years I have been visiting St. John during the winter months. Each trip I take, my stay is usually for a month. My husband and I have spent all summer saving for our trip to St. John this winter and have been looking forward to it.
Further, we have bought property in the Fish Bay area. We love everything about St John, from the people to the beaches. There is a beach for everyone.
The people on Salomon Beach [who sunbathe nude or topless] do not bother anyone. To ticket these people who are spending a lot of money keeping your economy alive is crazy. It is a long hike to Salomon, and most people know what to expect when they get there. A couple of web sites cleary mark it as a nudist beach.
Now that we are in a crisis in the United States, people are going to be particular about where they vacation. St. John needs the business of the people who live in the States. Please pay attention to all the mail that you get on this subject. This is very serious. Many people will think twice about where they want to go on vacation. It is not right to be harassed by a park ranger. I really hope that this matter will be straighted out.
