Well, I said goodbye to my car tonight. That was a sad day. I seriously loved that car. But my very smart hubby thought it would be wise to get a car with lower miles. So, I have a new car, still sad to see the old one go.
We have been married 4 months now, and I am still not finished blogging about our honeymoon!
St Maarten was our last stop on our cruise. I was really looking forward to seeing St. Maarten and it did not disappoint. The water was the bluest Ive ever seen!
I had read about the "airport beach" and had seen youtubes on it so the second we got there, we hopped a cab and went directly to the beach to see the airplanes come in.
I dont know what it is about seeing big airplanes, but I LOVE it. I could watch them land and take off all day long. Whenever I am driving past the SL airport...which is everyday, I love watching the planes coming in and out.
This was AWESOME. If any of you are looking for a vacation, I would strongly recommend St Maarten and you HAVE to go to the airport beach!!
We hopped in a cab, and it was just Russ and I in this big van. The AC did not work and we got stuck in traffic due to an accident. It was miserable! By the time we got to the beach, it looked like Russ has just had a serious work out he was sweating so bad. Totally worth it for this blue water!
The Airport beach is exactly what it sounds like. You get to play in the most beautiful crystal clear water while planes literally land right above you. The airport runway is just feet from the beach.
Its SOOOO loud.
As soon as something that big and close goes over you, there is quite the windy stage to follow, followed by tourist chasing their stuff all over the beach. Its awesome. This woman of course lots her hat straight to the ocean. Russ, being a gentleman, ran into the ocean to grab this ladies hat, right as a wave came in, hit him and I watched cash and cards fall from his pockets. He didnt notice because he was fetching this ladies hat. So I ran straight to the ocean and grabbed what little cash I could, but our cards to get back on ship were long gone.
He did find his sunglasses though, so we were good there.
We had a few minutes before we had to get back on, so we stopped to enjoy our last few minutes of our honeymoon by eating a delicious filled crepe and fruit smoothie.
