Our third and final stop was to St. Maarten, Virgin Islands where all ten of us took an ATV (4 wheeler) tour through the island to a beach. It was so much fun, but I will say that I am glad I had driven 4 wheelers before. Those that hadn't were a little skiddish throughout the drive (I won't name names...) and rightly so! We were driving on the road with all of the St. Maarten traffic! It was a fun ride and we were able to see a lot of the island that normally we wouldn't have been able to see. When we arrived at the beach we had just over an hour to hang out and we spent the entire time in the ocean. The water was just the right temperature and the waves were great for body surfing!
Our ports of call were a lot of fun, but we also had a blast on the ship during our days at sea. The Freedom of Seas has a rock climbing wall, flowrider, and a putt putt course. Chris, Justin I, Justin B, Ed and I all enjoyed the experience of the flowrider. We did this two or three days and it wasso much fun - hard and at times very painful, but fun! Chris, Justin Ireland and I also climbed the rock wall together. Unfortunately I did not make it to the top. I've never been one who is afraid of heights, but for some reason this scared me a little. Maybe it had something to do with being out in the middle of the ocean and also having short legs and I couldn't reach the next step. Oh well! Thumbs up to Justin and Chris! Below are just a few pictures from our week... It was such a great time of celebration and fun with family.
We got home from the cruise on Sunday July 5th and on Monday the 6th Chris and I visited Jess and Alex in Greenville, SC. Tuesday the 7th we went to Augusta to visit more dear friends and on Friday the 10th we moved to Florida!! Keep looking for a post about our new home!!
