Vacation - Just what the Doctor Ordered!
Sunday, April 10, 2011
I just came back from a one-week vacation with my son, Alex. We were in St. Maarten, a very friendly half-Dutch/half-French island in the West Indies. The flight getting there was long but worth they time! I ate reasonably the entire trip and even enjoyed two very nice meals on the French side of the island that will be memorable to us both. I even indulged in on one of the French Macroon cookies that they make in Paris. We scuba dived on one day and saw a shark, stingray, baracudda, puffer fish, trunk fish, turtles, and a variety of reef fish who made their home in several wrecks that we dived. One of the wrecks you could actually swim through part of the cabins. I relaxed and hardly paid attention to work. It was WONDERFUL and I will remember to take all three weeks vacation tihs year. It just felt way too good to get away!
