More Friends in St. Martin

We love it when friends come to visit us. This time it was Angela, Jill and Jill's son Kyle.

Kyle storms the Bastille! Oops, it's just Fort Louis overlooking Marigot Bay.

There isn't much left of the fort but the view is beautiful!

A stop at the market for fresh fruit, bread, meats and cheeses, our favorite lunch.

A picnic on the terrace of the Hotel Beach Plaza.
Wendy, Kyle, Jill and Angela.

Kyle with some of the local kids.

This is what happens when an 11 year old hangs out with 4 adults. We buried him in the sand and stuck a coconut on his head!

The next morning we were off for a day of sailing when suddenly Kyle committed mutiny and took over the ship!

Actually, Kyle got his first lesson in steering and did a great job. We headed northeast towards Anguilla and then tacked back to Creole Rock near Grand Case for snorkeling, swimming and lunch.

Jill & Kyle's Great Adventure!

Jill and Kyle spent a morning at the Loterie Farm, an adventure park with zip-lining. They had to walk through the treetops on a tightrope, rope ladders, swinging logs and more and then zip-line down trough the canopy. Wendy and Jim followed along on the trails below. Wimps!

Here's Chester, one of the residents at Loterie Farm. He quickly lost interest in us once he realized we didn't have any food.

Then it was off to Orient Beach where Kyle hit the surf!

We had a great time with our friends. Thank you Angela, Jill and Kyle for spending your vacation with us. Who's next? Come on down, the weather's great!


  1. thank god Aunt Connie was not made to walk that rope bridge ladder. we all know how much fun it is when she freezes and can't move.

    gorgeous pictures. Kyle offically wins the "what I did on my vacation" contest.


  2. Thanks for being amazing hosts for our island excursion! While the sunburn is still torturing me--it was all worth it. Jim did you photoshop just how "white" I was???

  3. guys are great hosts for vacationers. So when are you done with that and heading south? We're in Bequia only heading as far north as St. Lucia. Hurry!!!!

  4. Just make sure you guys keep that offer for long enough that two poor medical and law students can scrape up enough dough to fly down there! St. Martin looks as wonderful as always. Miss you guys and the islands!

  5. Looked like it was a great time. I would have loved to help with the sand project to bury Kyle. It takes youth too motivate. Why is it our pictures are all on the last day while we hurry up to capture the trip and we are eating or drinking?? I must say the zip line trip looked too adventuresome for my blood! It was so high up! Love Marcia
