Off we go…
It\’s a beautiful spot with protected calm waters. The beach is pebbly but we don\’t mind.
We had heard there was a nurse shark in the area and just as I was about to step in the water for our snorkel he went swimming by. Can you see him?
I think because of the plankton the visibility wasn\’t great. But we must have hovered over these two rays for about 20 minutes as they fed and the bottom and swam together. It was pretty incredible to watch.
You probably know that we love Eagle Rays so much that Don decided to get one tattooed on his back.
Don had mentioned that we hadn\’t see any mongoose \’dem (plural for mongoose)…until we got to Waterlemon. They were litterally trying to get in coolers, jumping in hanging bags, and whatever they could do to get some food. An army of about 6.
One last picture of Waterlemon before we leave.
Did I mention we got a selfie stick for the trip? It was mainly for underwater use and getting closer to the underwater action. And taking selfies like this 🙂
The doors/windows opened all the way up so it was inside/out living, especially for the moths 🙂
Upstairs it was the same thing. It was a beautiful view but there were no curtains. So at 6 am the room was full of light and Don & I were up.
It feels like being a cruise ship.
We didn\’t realize we would be looking down on our neighbors. It was a little too close. Along with the lack of curtains in the master bedroom and the lack of privacy, we wouldn\’t chose this villa again. But we loved our 2 weeks here…no regrets.
Grab a book and off to Maho!
Family Fun and Photo Bombs!
Quinn took this one for us.
And one last night at the Beach Bar.
Love this place!
Then we went to check out Carnivale. But honestly we were there way too early. I\’m sure things didn\’t get grooving until 9 pm or later.
Day 14, Friday:
Day to go home. Our flight isn\’t until 2:45 pm so we have lots of time to return the car, catch the ferry, catch a cab to the airport, and be on our way.
Leaving STT and flying over Charlotte Amalie. That long dock on the right is where all the cruise ships usually dock. None in today.
Flying over the blue waters of Florida heading to Miami.
It was great to be back on STJ and we felt right at home once again. I\’m not sure that we will be taking a 2 week vacation again anytime soon but we will treasure these amazing two weeks.
