Sand Castle on the Beach | Sunset in Frederiksted [St. Croix 2018]
We woke up with one mission in mind: get to the other side of the island. Liz had told us about Rainbow Beach, and we were excited to snorkel and do fun stuff. So we ate a yummy breakfast, as usual…
…then we put on our swimsuits and “coverups” and headed into the car for the 1-hour drive to the beach.
We made a stop at a gas station because I had to pee. We ended up spending $10 on some really yummy snacks for the road and recorded this ridiculous video.
So we got to Rainbow Beach and it was empty. There was one family there. That’s it. All the kayaks and snorkel gear were locked up, chairs chained up, doors locked up… we were so sad and confused. I later looked online and found out that they were closed from September 8-18, or something like that. So we were just out of luck.
Anyway, we found another beach at “Sand Castle on the Beach Hotel” that had plenty of beach guests and an open restaurant.
The waves were a little more rough than we were comfortable with, so we ended up hanging out in our beach chairs most of the time. We didn’t have to rent them, thank God.
Since we had so much time to spare, we called Roody’s parents to check up on the boys. Then we called “Big Beard’s Adventure Tours” to make a reservation to go snorkeling the next morning. It cost $75/person for the half day tour and we had to pay over the phone. I didn’t think that was too bad. I was just happy to finally be going snorkeling! I was honestly getting really sad because I thought that snorkeling was just not going to happen.
Roody & I started to feel hungry, and we didn’t like the fact that the hotel’s burgers cost $10. Our last experience with beach burgers wasn’t the best hahahaha. So we packed up, hopped in the car and found a pizza spot.
The pizza spot wasn’t serving pizza just yet, and we were too hungry to sit and wait. So we went to the bakery next door and got some goodies. Then we drove to a parking lot and I took a nap until Roody told me it was time to go catch the sunset.
That’s mostly why we drove to other side of the island. The sun sets in the West, and I was sure we’d see something so beautiful.
It was alright lol. I hate to sound so mean in this blog post. I promise I wasn’t upset or anything, but I just want to make sure I’m telling the truth. I expected magic, and I didn’t get any. So I created the magic through photographs. I had the brilliant idea of taking a silhouette photo of us kissing.
The other sunset photos I took was just ok. I actually preferred the ones that I took the night before at “The Mermaid.”
After this, I crocheted the entire way home. Then stopped at Wendy’s for dinner, played “Fear Pong” for my youtube channel and watched a movie. Another good day for the books :)
