It has been about a month since our anniversary trip now, and I have finally had an opportunity to share some pictures on the blog! Better late than never, right? We drove down to Miami and took a 7 night cruise through the Caribbean. Excuse the horrible phone quality, I will upload some other pictures from my real camera in a few days.
Our first stop was in Philipsburg, St. Maarten! It was absolutely breathtaking. Nothing makes my heart pitter-patter more than the beauty of the hills AND beaches! We raced a legitimate sailboat and it was so much fun. I am now a huge fan of sailing! Afterward, we walked around the town to visit the little shops and eateries.
Our next port was in St. Amalie, St. Thomas. It looked a lot like St. Maarten, so I was still in love with the scenery. We took a cab to Coki beach. We were a little hesitant at first, because no one else was wanting to ride with us to that particular beach. It turned out to be so beautiful and relaxing! They had a cute little restaurant, snorkeling, paddle boarding and even scuba diving lessons!
Our last port was Nassau, Bahamas. I had been there maybe 5 times prior to our cruise, so I wasn’t as excited to explore the island. We decided last minute to sign up for an excursion. We took a boat out to sea and did some snorkeling and kayaking in a glass-bottom kayak. It was very relaxed and laid back but we still really enjoyed our time.
Our whole vacation pretty much consisted of napping, eating, sun bathing and exploring. It was such a great time and I am so glad we decided to cruise. I can’t believe it has already been two years! I am already planning next years anniversary trip. I’m thinking either France or Italy! What do you guys think?!
