escaping winter in the caribbean

One of the three pools and walkway in front of our apartment complex

Spiral staircase down to the private beach

The morning pool, with steps at the far end leading up to our apartment

In case you're tired of winter, I thought I'd share a little Caribbean sun and sea from our beach front on St Maarten. I've had to indulge in gelato twice a day to stay fortified for so much loveliness.

From our beach, looking west at five-masted tall ship sailing by

Looking further east from our beach

The courthouse downtown in Phillipsburg

Welcome to St Maarten's Dutch side

Oh I luv the Carribean. One of my favorite places to go. I am a water baby, took me years as a kid to understand why I was not a mermaid...lol.
The azure blue water, sigh. Have a wonderful time
