Delicious Deli

Today we’re back in St. Croix, and by now I’m a regular at the Turtles Deli.  I’ve found my favorite sandwich (Pepper Turkey Special: Pepper Turkey, Cranberry Sauce, Mayonnaise and melted Jalapeno Jack Cheese served on Sourdough Bread.  Glorious).  I have found out the name of the friendly cat (Gabriel, and he is gray, just…
