After what seems like a long time, we are wearing t-shirts and sunnies and have the possibility of swimming in the ocean. St Maarten is the first port of call on our cruise across the Atlantic. It took us 4 days to get here. It's kinda on the edge of the Caribbean. It is a small island with 2 countries on it. We went to the dutch side. I even spent 3 days going to the on-board dutch lessons, but then everybody we spoke to spoke English, so I didn't get to use any of it.

We parked next to another Royal Carribean ship the Allure of the Seas - hmmm... .we are the small cruise ship on the right in the picture. The Allure was MASSIVE. It has a huge internal space, called central park, running through the middle of the ship so you can have an internal looking balcony. It was down season, and they had 500+ kids on this trip, we had 17.

Palm trees, tourists and souvenirs. We didn't take a tour to explore away from the port. The kids just wanted to do a beach. So that's what we did.

Wet feet, sun and sand under your fingers. Madi spent as much time on the shore as in the water.

Denny seems intent on collecting shells, rocks and sticks. With our transient lifestyle this translates into lots of "we can't take it with us" "that's too heavy"
"Let's take a photo of this collection". Here is his collection, preserved forever - digitally :)

Map of St Maarteen and St Martin. Strange shaped island with almost as much interanal water as land.

from Lee
Philipsburg, Sint Maarten is the Dutch side
Saint Martin was the British side of the island
wonder where the original inhabitants part of the island is?
