I know its been awhile but I finally found the pictures of our honeymoon. We went to St. Maarten and it was very interesting. The small island was split down the middle and half is owned by the French and the other half is owned by the Dutch. That means there are two forms of money, two different types of license plates, even two different spellings for Sint Martin/St. Maarten.

This was the view from our back porch. We were about 20 yards from the ocean! We were blessed with great weather the whole week. Even the misty rain was perfect in the morning.

This was another island. St. Barths, and St. Lucia were within view also. Neil thought he could swim there. He couldn't. So we tried kayaking. He got sea sick. It's still pretty from far away.
(ok to be fair, Neil was on steroids when we went kayaking because he got poison ivy three days before our honeymoon....romantic, i know)

Playing in the sand.

We went on a day trip to the "other" side of the island. There was a cute marketplace with locals selling everything from bags to spices.

We went hiking and were rewarding with the best views of the island.

There is a small beach near the airport so on our last day we went about 2 hours early, checked in, and walked to the beach. It was one of the best parts of our trip.

notice the DANGER sign.....yet the put a restaurant there :)

This surfboard listed all the arrival times for the day. Very convenient!

check out the guy in the corner!
It was so fun. We saw about ten planes in two hours!

We had a great week.
We are so thankful to our parents who gave us the honeymoon we never even expected!
