We had the most fun on our last stop - at St. Maarten. We had opted to take a powerboat tour of the island, which is not the sort of thing we normally would go for, but it was super fun. We had a uber-German boat driver, to whom the whole sea was an autobahn. I've never gone so fast in a boat. It was crazy, and Declan loved every minute of it.
|Look at Declan's "I can't believe how fast we are going" face!|
|Declan was excited to spot some sea turtles- this one had fish hitching a ride on his back.|
We got some good beach time in too.
At one of the beaches we came upon a heap of iguanas. Here Declan tries to feed them a blade of grass.
We had much better luck after getting a tray of kitchen refuse from a nearby restaurant. The iguanas came a-runnin' after that!
We did make a stop at the famous "Airport Beach" which has St. Maarten's airport runway immediately adjacent. I did not capture in the photo how thrillingly close the airplanes really do come to touching down on sunbathers. It was off the chain.
