St. Kitts, Finale

Our 7 days in St. Kitts / Nevis were the first time in many years that my husband and I had a vacation together alone….Good for the soul and spirit…and attittude  This island country is beautiful, as are most of the Caribbean islands.  The people are friendly and welcoming, the weather of course is perfect and I think I mentioned in an earlier post that there are no bugs!!!  Nothing worse than a bug in the umbrella drink!  LOL

We had a nice mix of fun tours and just relaxing by the beach and pool. Long walks along the beach resulted in additions to my shell collection…like I need more

A must do on our list was to take a catamaran excursion, included was snorkeling at  Shitten Bay…not shitten ya…OK I couldn’t resist.  This cove is only accessible by water, the cove’s depth is about 15 – 20 feet and abundant with beautifully colorful fish.  I bought an underwater camera before we left, I really should have practiced a bit and figured out ahead of time how to operate it   I thought I was snapping photos but came to find out I had a bunch of 5 sec videos.  Oh well, not too many photos to share but a great memory!

Leeward Islands Charter  is the company we booked with.  The first day was on the Eagle, she is a 67′ former racing cat.  The crew could not do enough to make the day wonderful.  They were totally engaged with the passengers, even had a few dancing on the deck.  After snorkeling we cruised over to Nevis and spent a few hours on the beach, and visited Sunshines….apparently an infamous gathering spot.  We had so much fun we booked another day…2nd day was on the Spirit of St. Kitts, also terrific, but should you ever get to St. Kitts and take the all day cat sail try to make it on the Eagle…crew is more fun!!!!

Rainforest Tour with Captain Sunshine was nice, drove through downtown Basseterre then along the shore and up to the rainforest and Romney Manor.  Was really hoping to see more “wildlife”, but did spot a monkey up in the tree canopy.  Our guide was very informative and did all he could to accommodate us photographers that wanted to constantly stop to take a photo 🙂  the 4 hour tour ended up be about 51/2 hrs.

The 7 day vacation was just what the doctor ordered…and what a great place to spend it.  Considered leaving it all behind and moving in here! 🙂
