Port #3...St. Maarten

Another action packed day on St. Maarten. Hubby and I went shopping earlier in the morning and found a few knick knacks for gifts for my staff. We were amazed at the number of locals wearing jeans because this is their 'winter'. It was HOT to us...85 is hot when home is 5!

I tried a Guavaberry Rum drink...

We bought 'special' cigars...and cheap cigarettes...like $12.95 a carton...um but I don't smoke LOL...they are for a relative.

We took a water taxi from one area of the island to another and I spotted this boat. I had never seen a boat that shape or style before. Have any of you?
After water taxi-ing we decided to head back to our boat to get ready for the afternoon snorkling at Yellow Pinot Beach on the French side of the island. It is clothing optional...not something I am used to in the U.S. Snorkling wasn't my cup of tea but my husband LOVED it. He loved the snorkling....
I have tons more to write about but I am just to sleepy tonight...I will try to post more tomorrow.

I'm loving your photos from the cruise. Love that hat too. Seeing all your photos makes me wanna hop on the next cruise ship heading out. All the places look familiar. Love going there.
Don't have too many of those cute little drinkies.
