The first port of our cruise was St. Croix. We'd booked a beach excursion at Rainbow Beach. We were told we could walk. Some of the group wasn't excited about that. Others thought it would be nice to walk. Dean & I were part of the walking crew. When we asked a local where Rainbow Beach was he pointed "right over there". The taxi driver said "walk to Rainbow Beach???". Personally, I thought he just wanted more fares. Some rode, some walked. The walk was really pretty!
Then there was this.
A wave runner. We were doing a wave runner tour. Turns out I'm not a fan of wave runners. I spent the first 30 minutes of the "tour" saying Hail Mary's while my eyes were on fire because they were full of saltwater. The waves were somewhere in the area of 5-6 ft. high. On the ride back the wind was at our backs & it was better but I'm done. They tell me to hold onto the straps of Dean's life vest on his sides. By the time the tour was over I thought my hands were crippled because I could hardly uncurl my fingers. I felt like I had bruises on the bones of all my fingers. Dean wasn't a big fan either & neither was Anna. Everyone else loved it. I can swim but I don't like modes of transportation that go in water.
At the beach there was a little bar & grill that had good food. We ate lunch there & they had delicious pina colada's.
I really enjoyed laying on the beach with my pina colada. Much more my thing. We chose to take a taxi back to the ship. We walked around a little in the area around the ship & then got back on.
These were waiting for us in our cabins.
They were from our travel agent & they were delicious. Especially with the bottle of Champagne she had in the cabin when we got there.
Next up St. Maarten!
