Alaska cousin and Zeb the Duck head for the PeliDeli with our humans.
We climb on the bus toward Phillipsburg, St. Maarten. This bus is provided by Ama Jewelers. Ama has several stores in St. Maarten. The have really cute pendant necklaces with jeweled flip-flop sandals. That is so like the beach! Ama jewelers also specialize in colored diamonds. I think all human females love colored diamonds.
We stop for breakfast at an outside café.
With full stomachs, the humans wander through many shops. The streets are lined with stores, and this clock caught the duck eyes.
Phillipsburg, St. Maarten is one of the busiest shopping areas in the Caribbean. In additional to traditional stores, we enjoyed this market.
Many cruise ships stop here, for shopping, for beautiful beaches and of course, the many great spots for lunch.
We don’t want you to think that shopping is all there is. We saw this church, St, Maarten of Tours Roman Catholic Church
and other historical and government buildings. The street near the beach has so many human opportunities. Segways are for rent, as are many beach accessories.
We saw shoppers, swimmers, boaters and people lounging on the beach and many humans in the cafes.
This Pirate Sports Bar was interesting and had great figures to cause humans to notice the establishment.
At this café, we could see the gentleman grilling this chicken.
It smelled wonderful. We did have another snack here. Very tasty!
St. Maarten has guavaberries. This store specializes in guavaberry products. This sign promotes guavaberry liqeur.
This is best enjoyed on St. Maarten as it is difficult to transport liquids on the airplane. Tomorrow we leave St. Maarten and fly to St. Thomas so we did not purchase additional liquids today.
Phillipsburg is a busy port with great shopping. We ducks loved it, but were ready to get back to our beach and pool. The humans got a taxi and we headed back to our resort.
We loved the shopping and activities of Phillipsburg and we think you would enjoy some time here also. Maybe some blue or canary diamonds??
