Mothers Day spent on Hotel on the Cay

The “Mom’s” of the house wanted to spend their day on the beach at a neat little place here called Hotel on the Cay. A nice sized hotel sitting on a very small island right off the boardwalk of downtown Christiansted. It is about a 2 minute boat ride out to the island. They have cabana’s, umbrella’s, chairs etc. you can rent and one of the prettiest, kid friendly beaches around. After the guys made breakfast for the Mom’s we loaded up into the bus and headed for the island. After we got to the island, we got us a couple of loungers and a cabana and was soon set up and heading for that gorgeous blue water. We swam and snorkeled stopping about every hour for a shade break and some snacks – then took a break around lunch to get in on some of the menu being offered from the grill.

We did a little paddle boat riding and managed to snag another kayak so me and Will could make a lap around the bay before coming back for some more swimming and snorkeling. I managed to get out for a little bit of snorkeling on my own and managed to come across a Barracuda that was about 3′ long and also managed to get a couple shots of a sting ray cruising through the area~! We spent the bulk of the day having a wonderful time with each others company. Finally decided everybody had about as much sun as we needed and started packing up to head back to the condo. We got here, got gear cleaned and everybody got a shower before taking off to head out to the North shore to Eat @ Cane Bay for a nice Mother’s Day meal. Outstanding meal for some outstanding Mom’s~!!

Now back at the condo again and most are off to bed already, worn out by a great day…….. There was some chatter about making the hike up to an old light house out on the Northern tip of the island – but we’ll see what the sun baked folks feel like in the morning……  😉

I hope all you Mom’s out there had a great day as well.  Good night ya’ll — thankx for stopping in~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
