Photo Shoot in Christiansted Historic District | Sunset & Fire Dancers at "The Mermaid" at Buccaneer Hotel [St. Croix 2018]
Roody and I spent the first 3 days of our vacation running up and down, and we really needed a day of true relaxation. So after eating breakfast and then working on a puzzle for a couple hours, we decided to take a dip into the pool.
I’m not sure why I didn’t take any photos of Roody swimming with the floaty. He looked ridiculous. But we both had a good time, talked about life and enjoyed the view.
We suddenly got really hungry and decided to head to “Cheeseburgers” for lunch. We always drove by them while heading into town, so it was finally time to see if they deserved the name.
Yeeeeahhhh, these were two of the best burgers we’d ever eaten. I’m serious! No exaggeration. Roody couldn’t stop talking about it. And our waitress was so kind and sweet. She talked to us the whole time and told us stories. She also took this photo for us :)
I follow a lot of bloggers on Instagram. Their feed always looks soooo good, and I knew the exact style of photos that I wanted to take in St. Croix. So it was time for another photo shoot! We went back to the B&B and I spent about 30-45 minutes applying my make up, mostly because I wanted to try doing a winged liner. That was really difficult, but totally worth it.
I honestly thought this next batch of photos was a fail because of how quickly we were losing light. You can’t tell, but the sun was almost gone and the photos were extremely dull before I brought them back to life in Lightroom :)
Finally, we took the last set of photos in front of this iconic building that I had had my eye on since I first saw it. We had no time to run and get the tripod, so we took turns taking photos of each other.
We were just about to leave when I spotted this little area. It must be really easy to be a St. Croix portrait photographer. With all these beautiful locations, you can’t mess up!
Liz told us to go to “The Mermaid” at Buccaneer Hotel to hear the guy play the steel pan drums, watch the sunset and the fire dancers. The sunset was GORGEOUS! Even more beautiful than the one we experienced in Frederiksted the day before.
To be honest, our food was way more expensive than we had anticipated. This was our most expensive meal on the island, costing us more than $100. it was absolutely delicious, though. I got grilled shrimp and Roody got lamb chops. Yumma!
Before leaving, we asked the hostess to take a photo of us. Then I set up the camera on our way out and took some more photos. Because we cute or whatever :)
What an amazing day!!
