Not only do I love being back in St Martin, but honestly my obsession with these dogs is real! I got tears in my eyes last night thinking of leaving them again in a few days. They’re just the best dogs I’ve ever known and I’l just love them so so much (yes I’m such a dork 😂🤷🏻♀️). And to make the day even better I got to go up to Xander’s grandparents house (with btw my new favorite view of the island) and say hello to their adorable dog Happy that is btw the happiest dog I’ve ever met 😂 but to experience their beautiful garden with the most unique ecology I’ve seen in a long time. How his grandpa has been able to grow plants that are barely anywhere to be seen on this whole planet, plants that has mutated into completely new plants/ albino versions etc. it was just amazing! And having baby/ grown up middle sized turtles all over the garden just hanging out. He even has those huge tortoises but I wasn’t lucky enough to see them around today. But I got to hold and pet baby turtles for the first time in my life and I’m just super happy about it 😍
After many ifs and buts I finally touched ground in Saint Martin yesterday. After being denied entry to the country not even 10 hours before I was gonna head to Miami airport we finally were able to solve the issue.
I’m so so happy to be back, brings back so many great memories, seeing my friends and of course my favorite dogs!!! Was super chill yesterday and did nothing but chilled and went out for a few beers at night.
Finally got a real sleep in, in a real bed that’s three times bigger than mine onboard 😭😂 spent some time by the pool today, wasn’t complaining at all to have a whole hotel to myself and just relaxing with a great podcast in my ears and three dogs running around the pool area. Just ordered in some sushi and going to have an early night and try to catch some more sun in the morning.
Also met up with Blair I used to work with on my first boat which was super refreshing to see how well he’s doing and just see another familiar face that I haven’t seen in a year.
Nothing but smiles on my face for the past 24 hours 💛
Not even this neck pain can ruin how happy I am to be where I’m at right now 💕
