Which is why when my parents & I hopped on a plane to St. Kitts, I was beside myself with joy to pack ALL SHORTS and SANDALS!
Donde esta la St. Kitts??
(Animal Print?? Only cuz its trending!)
I'm not a big fan of Thanksgiving, or the holiday season in general. (Feel free to say/think whatever you'd like about me.) Last year I went to Portland, Oregon...remember? So this year, I asked my parents if they would wanna go somewhere instead of sitting around eating turkey. The results to my question:
From the Hotel:
Roommates...let's get one of these for our weather forecast!
We took a tour of St. Kitts:
We returned from the tour to this!! Get yo dance on mon!
Another day we took the ferry over to the island of Nevis:
After we caught our 45min(?) ferry ride, we haggled with some taxi drivers, but I (yes, i'm bragging) found us a cheaper driver for the day. Our driver, Teach from Dominica, took us on a lovely island tour.
One of the stops included a visit to an old, slave plantation that had been refurbished into a swanky hotel.
Random dog wanted to be in our family...Can you blame him?
I took this especially for Mary...Princess Diana stayed here with William & Harry!!
Teach took us around the island, which was beautiful! We had a late lunch and then jumped on our ferry to head back to St. Kitts.
Waiting for the ferry...no better time for a little photo shoot!
On the ferry...not picture - annoying, [drunk?], LOUD passengers sitting right next to my ear.
I forget when this was, but one night we went to dinner and took some after dinner photos.
LAST DAY/THANKSGIVING DAY:
We spent our morning on the beach, and the afternoon 'till midnight traveling back to Dallas.
All in all it was a great trip to avoid the holiday and enjoy some Vitamin D. Favorite moment was when I asked a staff member where I could get coconut water. (I heard you could get it at the hotel.) He asked what pool I was at, and he would meet me there to tell me where I could buy it. NEXT THING I KNOW, he's knocking down coconuts by my pool, asks me if I want ice, and starts pouring it in a cup for me!!!!
WELL!! On our last day my parents & I were chillin on the beach...I ran into this same staff member, and later he came around with a huge cup of iced coconut water! He left us another coconut for our refill.
Hope you enjoyed the photos, and that they made you feel a tad warmer!!
