St. Maarten/St. Martin: Philipsburg & Mullet Bay Beach

St. Maarten/St. Martin: Philipsburg & Mullet Bay Beach

Day 4! Honestly, I'm so sad this trip is going by so quickly. It's been an absolute dream except for a nervous breakdown I had yesterday when we were driving and I made Rich pull over. Besides that an absolute dream. 

They say you need to travel with someone before you decide to spend your life with them, and maybe they're right, but traveling with Rich is a lot of fun. Ok. Enough mushy. 

Day 4 started out with a rooster crowing wake up call. Do roosters crow? Whatever sound they make that's what I heard waking up this morning. 

We got up, got our stuff together and headed to Philipsburg. It's the tourist area for sure - where all the cruise ships stop for the day or so, but it was also very nice to saw I've seen it and visit. 

We walked around on the Front Street a bit - where there are SO MANY jewelry stores offering major discounts. And then on the boardwalk side where we had lunch at the Lazy Lizard. The owner Nick came up to us and told us a little about his story and why he opened up the restaurant. 

This was the view from our table at the Lazy Lizard. It was such a nice place. We shared the coconut shrimp and the chicken & ribs. So much food, but all soo good. 

After lunch, we strolled along a little bit longer. I found a store that sold replica watched - Chanel, Cartier, Rolex and was so tempted to buy a fake Chanel. Not for the fact that it was fake as much as the watch was so pretty. But for $125 for a fake Chanel, and knowing my friends know me, no one would even believe it. 

I skipped the watch and saved $125.

Next, it was to Mullet Bay Beach! 

I LOVED this beach! It was so clean, everyone was nice, very safe environment and you could watch planes fly over. 

Just gorgeous! Does a view get any better?

Since it was my last day as a 29-year-old, I had to capture the moment of leaving my 20's... 

It's a little hard to tell in this picture, but I am really happy in this moment. 20's you were wonderful, on to a new chapter! 

We left the beach around 5 and headed back to the house go shower and find a place to eat. It's so nice to sit on the top balcony of the house to watch the sunset and relax. 

Since we wanted something a little different for dinner we went to an Italian place. Even I was a little skeptical, but it was really good! The one thing off was the lighting - it made everything look really orange. 

I know the food doesn't look very appetizing (because it's orange) but I promise you it was delicious. 

My last meal in my 20's was spaghetti and meatballs. It's one of my favorite foods anyway to it seemed appropriate. 

After dinner, we came back to end the night on the hammock. 

What better way to spend the last night of your 20's? 

Cheers to a new era!

  2. The views are amazing. I'd never want to leave, I'd call the family and tell them I'll see them around thanksgiving. Absolutely gorgeous.
