St Maarten - Great Bay Beach

On our cruise, we also visited St Maarten.  The plan was to go to the famous airport beach - Maho beach. This is the beach where airplanes land and take off right over the beach.  However that morning, everyone was tired so we decided to sleep in a little and make it an easier day.  Great Bay Beach is right by the cruise port - just a water taxi ride away.  That was our new destination.

The water was amazing!  So many pretty blues - deep blues:)  The beach was great and we had a good time hanging out there.  We also did some shopping at the near by stores.

If you ever go to St Maarten and land near Philipsburg, you HAVE to try the coconut smoothie kiosk. It is on the left as you are walking along the port.  I think just past the water taxis.  If you like coconut, that smoothie is to die for!  I mean REALLY!  It was incredible!  I want to go back just for that!

I used a color challenge from Scrap Much?

They had this beautiful color board and the challenge says use at least 4 of the colors.  I used the pink, yellow, jade and blue.  Fun colors!

The sketch layout came from a recipe card at The Scrap Room
