The beautiful island of St. Maarten welcomes us again. The Star Clipper is in her berth waiting to welcome new guests aboard for their week-long cruise in the islands.
As we walked to the water taxi we got the chance to take one last Christmas tree picture – when we walked back to the ship 4 hours later it was all gone.
Me, Chandra the sales girl, and the free hugs / beer man. We bought a watch here – good prices!
Hästa made it to the beach –
- and stood guard over us.
This is the current Town Hall and Post Office. Built in 1793, it has been a Commander’s home, a Fire Station and a Jail.
This is one of the Water Taxis that run from town to the cruise ship docks and back every ten minutes.
What is it? Anyone know? It is very duck-like (note the webbed feet), but that is a very different kind of duck bill!
