Simpson Bay Resort and Marina

We are in the Caribbean!!  I see the beach.  It is warm and sunny here.  My Alaska cousin and I, Zeb the Duck, love Sint Maarten.  Cool Dutch spelling!  Mom and my Alaska uncle say we will stay here for a week.

Our condo has views of the ocean and one of our pools.

We have several dining choices here.  For breakfast we can go by the marina and eat at Alexander’s.  We can go just past the Peli Deli (more on that wonderful place later) and eat at Bon Appetit.

Dinner is served at Alexander’s other restaurant, upstairs by Bon Appetit.  We can choose The Stone by the marina or the Hollywood restaurant by the Hollywood Casino.  Also, the pool and beach bars serve lunch and early dinner.  So many food choices!  We tried almost all of them.

We have two pools.  One is just outside our door.

They offer water aerobics classes in our pool every morning.  The other pool is by the next building near the complex lobby.

Since we ducks have never even seen a beach, let’s start there.  Our beach is on a bay, so we have gentle waves that humans love.  Some humans swim, some play in the waves and some walk around the ocean water with big smiles on their faces.  There is a bar, which serves mixed drinks, beer, soft drinks and many sandwiches.

Everything I tried there was very good, and I tried lots of things!

We walked on the beach and even got wet when the waves came further up the sand.

It is fun.  The water is warm, but rather salty.  There is a net for beach volleyball.  We could never hit a ball that high, but we could have fun playing here.

Volleyball anyone?

A man brought beach lounge chairs for us to use.  Very nice.  He put the chairs by shade and a little table.  Mom said these grassy shade things are palapas.

We love the beach.  A lady is selling some beach supplies.

She has hats, dresses, swimsuit cover-ups, beach bags, some jewelry and other items.  This is so convenient!! Of course the beach bar provides food and beverages for us.  We ducks want to play on the beach, so we will continue this next time.  Sunshine, sand and warm water.  This is perfect.
