Land of many beaches, Saint Maarten Dec 05, 2016
We leave the Princess cruise ship for St. Maarten. This is the smallest Caribbean island split between two countries...France and Netherlands. We stopped at the Guavaberry Emporium and drank rum samples for a while. Then we order a three pack of mango rum that they would deliver to our ship. Maybe drunk in the USA but not here. I drove the bad roads around the island to find a nice sandy beach for the rest of the morning.
Take care men cuz the French beaches are topless, so you may see something you don't want to see. Orient Bay is the most famous of the topless beaches but it has a heavy surf so us older folks prefer the gentle surf of the other St. Maarten beaches. We setteled on Dawn Beach for the afternoon. Later we did shop until we drop in Phillipsburg, Saint Maarten. The prices were competitive on jewelry then; and general souvenirs were inexpensive. We finally returned to our ship.
This is a very nice island to visit.
