Tim and I just returned from an eight day Caribbean cruise. We enjoy cruising! With cruising we can visit multiple locations and only pack and unpack once! On this year's cruise, we enjoyed 3 relaxing days at sea, two of which were perfect deck weather. The third day, not so much, no breeze and HOT! We visited St. Barts, St. Croix, San Juan and the cruise line's island of Labadee. We met Rick and Nancy, a wonderful couple from Canada. We enjoyed touring and dining with them most of the week. We plan to keep in touch and hopefully travel to visit them in Canada sometime in the future.
On our sea day in St. Barts we did something we never do when traveling outside the US .... we rented a car. St. Barts is very expensive, taxis are costly. We decided to make the most of our day and take the plunge and rent a car. With Tim as the driver and Rick as the navigator, we set out to explore the island. We'd read about the beaches and were trying, with a not so great map, to find Marigot beach. We never did but we did find Petite de Cul de Sac beach. Amazing, untouched beauty.
We're back refreshed and ready to head back to the grind tomorrow, looking forward to when will do this again next year!
