Our morning shore excursion in St. Maarten was short enough to allow us time after lunch to cruise through the Great Bay in a water taxi to the town of Phillipsburg.

And what a beautiful view we had on our water taxi ride...look at the blue color of that water!

When we exited the water taxi, what a surprise to see the beautiful beach right in front of the main shopping street!
We walked up and down Front Street which is the main shopping street in Phillipsburg...


Finally finding the store I really wanted to find: The Belgian Chocolate Box...


where we bought several pieces of the most delicious white chocolate...if you visit St. Maarten, this is a must-see stop.

Since we had some time before we were due back on board the ship, we took an opportunity to walk along that beautiful beach and put our feet in the warm Caribbean waters...


Sadly, we eventually had to board the water taxi back to the ship (seen in the background in the picture above). We left St. Maarten knowing we would return very soon...even though it was only our first stop, we already knew St. Maarten would be our favorite stop of the trip.

Our next stop was the island of St. Kitts. I'll talk about that in my next post.

Thank you for visiting,
