St. John's Post 3: The Big Surprise

>> Monday, June 13, 2011

On our third day on the island, my parents announced that we were to be packed and in our Jeeps ready to go at 8AM. We were told that we would be gone for the entire day, and that we needed to pack the baby swing, one pack'n'play, and Jackson's life vest.

So, like the good children we are, we packed everything up and anxiously awaited the big surprise...

And a big surprise it was!  Just when we thought that this vacation couldn't possibly get any better, a 42ft. sailboat with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms - big enough for 20 people, pulled up to the dock.  Hello Snubadu and yummy rum drinks just for us, for the entire day!

We had no plan for the day besides sailing away in paradise and snorkeling in places only accessible by boat.  Captain Joe took us to some amazing places and we saw some incredible fish and coral.  I missed it, but a few of us even spotted a couple of sea turtles and sting rays!

Jackson started off a little unsure of the boat, and like the airplane, never quite grasped the concept that he was actual on one.  He took a little snooze with his cousin and woke up in a much better mood after lunch.

  I can't even begin to tell you how many times a thing of puff's saved the day on this trip!

I think this last photo says it all, what a day!!!
