No we didn't take a cruise...do not take a cruise here...fly and enjoy this Happy Island. We spent nine glorious days here in February and Brian and I can't wait to go back. From the excitement of the planes landing over Maho Beach, the tranquil waters of Baie Rouge, the people watching and swimming in Orient Bay, enjoying the pastry shops, the shopping at the port of Phillipsburg, and walking around the local market at Marigot, to enjoying a HUGE Super Bowl Party at the Casino Royal and even making the local entertainment newspaper...we did it!! Thanks Dad for this opportunity to enjoy the island with you. It was just like you said the trip of a lifetime!!
