Christine Goodrich

Current Rock of Residence:

St. Croix, USVI

Island Girl Since:

1980

Originally Hails From:

East Chicago, Indiana

Christine is a long time resident of the “big island” of St. Croix. She lives with her new husband (a stateside import she met when she thought she wanted to be a city girl), whom she lived with, in sin, for 15 years before he finally made an honest woman out of her. Christine moved back to the islands in 2002 with her man in tow and together they decided it would be a good idea to renovate her childhood home… while they AND her parents continued to reside in it. She is the creative type, always collecting found objects for her next big art project which makes their side of the now-duplex a catchall of eclectic items to be used for everything from tiling the floors to decorating the walls (that is, if they ever get walls up…) Needless to say, living in a construction site with her husband and three cats, next door to her parents, there is many a day you will find Christine seeking refuge in her neighbor’s pool with a frosty beverage.

I was raised on St. Croix and have spent most of my life here. I have survived not one, but two major hurricanes that have severely damaged my house. Out of necessity, I was forced to learn a lot about home repair. Well… necessity coupled with the fact that my...

Scavenger Hunting

Anyone who knows me can attest to the fact that I am far from the Domestic Goddess type. I am more the Let’s-Get-Down-and-Dirty-Tiling-the-Floors-Painting-the-House-and-Thorosealing-the-Cistern type of gal. My cooking contribution is something I like to call...
