From St Kitts

Friends Visit

We are back in St Kitts after our journey to Nevis and had a wonderful surprise. We have some friends (we really share them with the Cottles) that have arrived for a one week vacation. The cute Greens arrived on Saturday. They are staying at the beautiful Marriott Royal Garden Hotel (not far from where we live). Their room overlooks the beach with a great view. The island of St. Kitts has the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Caribbean Sea on the other. They love to play golf and the golf course looks really good from where we live – but we do not actually know for sure.

We were able to spend a few fun hours with them on Tuesday, showing them what we have learned so far which wasn’t too much because we have only been here less than two weeks. We took them to see the beach and some wild monkeys nearby but only found the beach – the monkeys did not show themselves. (I don’t think the Greens believed us about the monkeys). It was a nice sunny day so we drove around town. Two cruise ships were in port so it was a little busy with lots of people walking the streets.

We have a nursing school and a veterinary college near town (and two medical schools on the other side of the island), so we toured that area and some of the local housing – houses here are painted very vivid colors. We stopped at our house for a visit and then we had lunch at the local Subway sandwich shop and said our good-byes. It was just a wonderful surprise, thank you Greens for coming! Sorry the Cottles could not make it. It was a great visit even without playing any pickleball.
