One day, we're wading in the warm blue waters of the island of Jost Van Dyke watching pelicans fish, the next we're leaving the Sea Dream for a quick trip to the San Juan airport. Eight hours later we're back in Seattle, and twelve hours after that, we're waking up to a cold gray sky with the ubiquitous steady drizzle of a Seattle winter. Yeesh.

But what a great trip. T.'s favorite part of the boat was the twice daily room makeup service. I liked the cold face cloths the second we got off the tender after returning from shore. Of all the places we visited, I most enjoyed the funkiness of St. Martin's -- the flea market, the rundown cafes. Reading on the beach at the Bitter End and watching the pelicans -- who transfixed us for nearly two hours -- will both be great memories. Mainly, it was the time together in an environment of complete leisure. We talked, read, strolled, shopped, ate, drank, and completely enjoyed each other's company for nine whole days. I recommend it for everyone!
