View from our cabin, docked in St. Thomas:
This was to be our only concern for the week. Woe is us:
They should have one of these in every major city:
Some glorious water action:
“Mama’s” Sex on the Beach – the best friggin’ drink either of us has ever had:
The only excursion we booked was in Barbados – a pirate booze cruise! How appropriate. Considering adopting this look full time:
They warned us the drinks were strong. Unfortunately, we didn’t take them as seriously as we should have….
BUT… even though we were super toasty and no one was expected to see any turtles because of the crappy weather that day, we won, big time:
Some snaps of these little beauties:
Pure joy (I was actually yelling):
Celebratory drinks (too many, incidentally):
Somehow, we made it back to the boat, along with our table-mates and new friends from Puerto Rico, Alice and Luis:
Made it to St. Lucia. Life could be worse:
At less than $2/beer, how can he not be ecstatic??
Ahhh, Antigua. Is it just me, or do the beaches just get nicer and nicer as the boat moves along??
Samsonite’s right at home (though we left him on the boat)!
The view from Devil’s Bridge:
Half Moon Bay – A completely isolated beach with the most beautiful waves and waters we’ve ever seen… and a lone bar that sold ridiculously cheap beer. Let the glory and debauchery begin (RIP sunglasses):
St. Maarten (or St. Martin, depending on what side you’re on)
Started our day on the Dutch side of St. Maarten. Francy connecting with his Dutch roots:
You see what I mean?? The bluest waters and whitest sands we’ve seen yet!
Watched the planes land over Maho Beach, famous for it’s proximity to the St. Maarten airport and as such, an exhilarating spot to view the landing planes – especially the big commercials jets! Pretttty mind blowing (literally… hah! Get it? Get it?).
Francy working that helmet. We rented ATVs for the day, so he wasn’t wearing this just for funsies… or was he?
Francy was obviously more partial to the Dutch side. I was digging on the French, just to keep things interesting. The French side had the nude beach….
