Hi everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was spent recovering from a never-ending cold. I think my immune system hit a wall after the wedding, honeymoon and Thanksgiving and decided to crash. After 6 days of this, I am finally starting to feel like myself again. Let’s hope it lasts!
As promised here are a bunch more pictures from our honeymoon and all the different things we did. After a couple hours by the beach or pool, R and I start getting antsy so we were always looking for fun things to do during the day. I think we were able to find the perfect balance between relaxing and keeping ourselves busy.
One of the things I loved about Sandals is that they always had stuff to do during the evenings to entertain their guests. Sometimes that meant live music, games, casino nights, etc.
Our first real evening at the resort we got to listen to some live Caribbean music!
After the sun went down, you could usually find us in the lobby having a nice drink before dinner.
Do you want to know one of the best parts about our trip? WE MADE FRIENDS! This was so unexpected, but we were so happy to meet a fantastic group of other couples; what a great surprise!
We all met on one of the first nights at the resort when we all got seated together. After that night, we always seemed to end up at the same restaurant or bar after dinner (it was a small resort!).
Our second full day in St. Lucia we had a ziplining tour booked. Back when R and I were discussing our honeymoon, I told him that we had to go to a place that had a canopy tour because it had been something on my bucket list. We had SO much fun and we were both glad we’d booked it.
Getting ready for take-off!
Flying through the rain forest!
These canopy tours were a killer workout and we had to climb A LOT of stairs. Good thing we had a chance to burn off all those BBCs we were drinking…
We survived! I wish we could have done it again. The morning went by too fast!
When we weren’t flying through the St. Lucian rainforest, you bet you could always find us near the swim-up bar at the pool!
The second excursion we booked was Randy’s favorite of the trip; a Snuba tour! Snuba is exactly what it sounds like – a cross between scuba diving and snorkeling. You don’t have to go through all the training of scuba diving, but you get the luxury of breathing under water. I didn’t really get any photos of this because iPhones and the ocean don’t mix very well together…
But we did get handy certificates. We’re legit now.
One of our favorite restaurants at the resort was an Italian place called Tuscanini’s.
Attached to Tuscanini’s was a piano bar which we loved. With a little convincing (and by convincing, I mean with a nice $10 tip) the Piano Man even sang our wedding song for us!
(Those were not all our drinks…I swear!)
We continued to spend our days by the pool and the beach.
And then have dinner and drinks with our new friends!
One of the benefits the resort offered was a 30 minute photo shoot around the property. The pictures turned out surprisingly well so of course, we had to take a few home!
Towards the end of our trip, we knew that we wanted to hike Pigeon Island (it’s not technically it’s own island – it’s attached to St. Lucia) which was within walking distance of the resort. I think we both agreed that it was one of the best parts of our trip – the views were breathtaking!
This is where husbands go when they are bad! 😉
For our last night in St. Lucia, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner and then spent the evening in the Old London Pub with all our new friends!
I have probably completely bombarded you with photos, but that was our honeymoon in a nutshell! Hope y’all have a great week!
