NOV 3 TO 10, 2012 couldn’t believe there is a better way to spend a birthday. We arrived on water island greeted by Deborah from camp and Rachel with a golf cart. We followed Deborah to camp to be introduced to our amazing accommodations which happened to be #1 adjacent to the hot tub and communications room. We were then told we were the only ones staying and feel free to enjoy the entire place as we wished. If we need Deborah we used the phone in the communications room and she left us to our privacy. The sun rise in the morning was spectacular from our bed and porch. The view in the evening from the pavilion was spectacular. The bath house was very modern and clean. Laying in the hammock in the daytime reading a book or enjoying the view was so relaxing. The pavilion was well stocked with everything you needed to prepare meals or enjoy a nice glass of wine. Honeymoon beach was spectacular for sunning, swimming and just hangin' and the Monday night movie was "rocky horror picture show" it was a blast. Joe’s beach bar and hangin with the local was really enjoyable, full of information and sometimes very comical. Heidi's hideaway burger platter is awesome. Mornings before boarding the ferry you can get a Heidi's hot breakfast sandwich and coffee right at the dock. While we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of water Island, we also flew to St. Croix, enjoyed Christiansted and saw the beer drinking pigs at the domino club. We took our rental car to St. john on the ferry made our way to Maho beach with a great picnic lunch were we swam with stingrays and sharks…..love being able to park beachside there. Deborah…..as Arnold Schwarzenegger would say “WE’LL BE BACK!!!!!!” Thanks for the toe rings, tee shirts and my floozie coozie. The welcome bag and gifts were gratefully appreciated as well as the dinner voucher and activity discounts. We used our dinner voucher for $50.00 at Hook Line and Sinker in Frenchtown on Nov 5th for my extravagant birthday lunch where I dined on lobster UUUUUUMMMMMM.
It was very hard leaving this vast paradise to come back to Philadelphia to freezing weather, the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, and the threat of nor’easter.
