First order of the day was morning Mass at the Catholic Church in Simpson Bay, the church of Mary, Star of the Sea. A very nice little church, and when we walked up to it I thought that it was closed, but the door opened to us and it was cool! Air-conditioned environment at church!! It will never happen in Guyana 🙂 Mass was short (most people had to rush to work after),but the service was very nice.
Then it was back home for a non-tourist morning, stayed home, checked mail, etc. 🙂
Then after lunch, back to Philipsburg, this time we took our daughter along, shopping. After spending some time on Back Street, we ventured onto Front Street, that’s where the Casinos and Jewellery Shops are, but that’s not the kind of “scene” I was looking for, I was looking for the “older” Sint Maarten, and a walk along Front Street rewarded me with a few nuggets.
I’ll just post a few here, click on them to jump to the site with the album, 17 new images added for the fifth day here in Sint Maarten. I’m hurrying because I’m off to Anguilla!
Check the rest on the site… and another day ends in Sint Maarten…
