After 2 days at sea we are going to land at St. Maarten's Island. As I mentioned earlier I was shocked to see how far south the island is. If nothing else, the cruise is good for my geography. It's part of the Netherlands so it made us think of our time in Amsterdam though I don't remember these beaches and beautiful weather when we were in The Netherlands. I's not very big and only has a population of 43,000. We didn't plan a formal excursion and decided to just walk and explore. It was REALLY warm and humid. Like 90 degrees and 90% humidity so we didn't do a lot.
St Maarten is a nice little island with some great beaches but we didn't come prepared with our swimsuits and the heat and humidity was killing us so after a few hours we figured let's head back to the ship for some ship activities and some water sliding to beat the heat. It's always nice to come back to the ship a little early as there are not many people and you have the ship to yourself.
We love to watch the ship leave the dock but before that I have to get my traditional "departure drink."
No shows tonight as the water is a little rough from the remnants of Hurricane Tammie. We did another round of trivia. Madonna songs. 5/15 and our strong performance continues.
