Leave it to us to meet a Connecticut native 1,648 miles from home! We were on our way to Foxy’s when we met David on Foxy’s Excellent Adventure, the boat that he charters—we figured we’d get on board. Hey, we’ll get on anything with a skull!
David told us about how he left the Northeast for paradise with his wonderful wife and daughter. After traveling the world, they’d realized that nothing was more important to them than family and they couldn’t be happier. “We have time here for the important things in life that money cannot buy,” says Katherine, 7 year-old Yasmeena’s mom, and David’s wife of 25 years.
The Dietrichs are three of just 280 people who live on Jost van Dyke…and they love it! David runs Foxy’s Water Taxi and Charter business; Katherine home-schools second-grader Yasmeena—who’s also learning how to fish, farm, and sail. Together, they live life by (and on) the water in warm temperatures, and, “life can’t get any better.”
