After my recent technical blog entry [more to come soon], here are some more “relaxing” pictures from our recent stay in Sint Maarten/St. Martin.
We always love to come back to this Dutch & French Island, probably because of the good marine facilities and supplies as well great food and grocery. Also the fact that we know the island well from previous visits plays its roll. We get easily around and have our “reference points”. And we have good friends who live/work here or are also cruising the island.
This year, the island is very green – it has been raining a lot but rarely for more than a couple of hours. We also had some windy times but the lagoon offers great protected anchorages and marinas.
St.Martin/Sint Maarten has a lot more to offer than turquoise blue seas and beautiful white beaches and lots of charm [even some of the wrecks]. Often we just don’t take the time to discover them. This time, we went for a dive [to get Nitrox certified] and I visited the bird park with beautiful parrots.
Enjoy some random pictures from around the island ;-)
There are more islands to discover around the Caribbeans & beyond, follow our journey on board Moonwave on this blog …
