St Thomas

 We woke up to a beautiful day in St Thomas.  It is much warmer now and the seas are a beautiful blue!
Today we went on a kayak, hike and snorkel adventure.  We took an eco tour through the protected mangroves in Cas Cay.  

 Here is Blue Heron hanging out in the trees.  These trees are very interesting because they grow in the water.  You can read more about them here.  
Then we stopped at an island and snorkeled for awhile.  We saw a many fish.  

Not sure what this guy is eating??

 Along the mangrove trees are millions of these little fish. Then when you look farther in the roots the big fish are hanging out.  Very cool!

After our snorkel, we hit the island.  It was covered with hermit crabs.  It was the most unusual thing I had ever seen.  When you looked down at the ground it looked like it was moving.  There were sooooo many crabs.  It was creepy, but interesting at the same time.
 We had a hermit crab race.  Some people picked up a crab and put it in the circle.  Then they drew a larger circle around that and when you made noise, they started crawling.  

Can you guess which crab won????  He was a fast little guy!
 Then we went for a little hike on the island.  It was so beautiful!

Thanks for stopping by................ Next stop St. Maarten.

Getting crafty

Over the weekend I drove up to Sandy Creek, New York to visit my friends from Calvary Baptist Church.  I say this every time, no matter how long it has been between visits, I feel like not a day has passed.  They are dear friends for life,  
Jule and I taught some of the ladies how to make a cute little birdie wall hanging.  On each little bird we put a fruit of the spirit.  Galatians 5:22-23 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law."

We had fun catching up on our lives.  
They all made such cute pages.

Cyndi & Jan
It was great seeing everyone.  
During the rest of the weekend Jule and I had a card making marathon.  I will share them with you soon.
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

St. Maarten

 Today we woke up to this beautiful sight outside our window.  Welcome to St. Maarten.

 Today we took a trip on a sailboat to do some more snorkeling.  It was nice because there were only 12 people on the boat.  We sailed along the coast to a bay and we snorkeled for about an hour.

 I don't have any good fish pictures from to this trip because there just wasn't that many fish to see.  I was a bit upset that it was such crumby snorkeling.  Then I told myself to stop whining because we are swimming in the Caribbean Sea around all this beauty! We are so blessed to be able to go on such a trip.  
We swam back to the boat. They opened up the sails and cruised for about another hour along the islands shore.

After our boat trip we took a ferry to Philipsburg.  By that time of day it was very warm.  We walked around the few blocks and then decided to go back to our nice air conditioned room.

Here is my favorite picture from the day.
 I love the cedar siding, the windows and the teal  color on the doors.  
Well that wraps up our three port days.  The rest of our trip was spent at sea, on the boat.  We filled our time playing games, eating, sitting in the hot tub, eating, working out in the gym, eating, watching shows, eating, crafting, chatting, watching the sea go by and did I mention EATING!  It was a great trip with friends.  
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
