Hours... for hours my kids were like this.

It is so sweet how big sister holds on to little sister in the waves.

Locals hanging out after a hard days work of restoring the dock.

The Cotton House Beach Café... did I tell you I was the only not rich person visiting this restaurant???
Although I'm rich on life and love... I think that beats any cash really. :)

These are the pictures you've been waiting for, right? I continue my mini series o pictures and stories from our Christmas vacation in tropical Mustique.

The beaches. Say no more. My photos speak for themselves. There are so many beautiful beaches in Mustique, but our favorite one which we kept going back to, was Lagoon Bay, secretly hidden behind a sharp point forcing you to walk around the headland by following a path made from stones and jump through waves to get to this beautiful bay. And once we got there we were amazingly ALONE. Every single time. The waves were big. As the wind picked up during our visit they actually got too big at the end. But when you hit one of those waves body surfing on top of it - What a feeling!

The island is amazingly green and has some wet land forest. One day we walked a trail signed with information about the trees, bushes and animals that lives here. There were stories about how the trees function as a drain with their tight branches and roots during hurricanes etc. Protecting the land from being washed away. It was like a geography lesson walking through this wet land.

Another beach we visited on a daily basis was the Endeavour Bay, located only a few minutes from our villa and with the luxury hotel Cotton House located right next to the beach with the Cotton House restaurant on the beach where we had lunch almost every day. The menu was simple but very tasty (and ridiculously expensive!!!) with yummy burgers and homemade fries, fresh salads and lobster dishes. We tried out exotic drinks in the bar and spied on all the rich people aroudn us, spotting familiar faces like Meg Ryan and John Cleese and many model pretty women and looking important business men. A little bit surreal but incredibly fun.

Jay, who grew up in St Croix in the Caribbean, quickly got the kids into snorkeling and exploring the beach life in its full; body surfing, collecting shells, building sand art and just chilling in the shade. I would love to go back to this paradise island one day and enjoy it again. The only thing I can compare it with is the Seychelles, where I actually met Jay 15 years ago now. Maybe I will tell you that story one day as well. It is a really good one.


Next time I'll share some pictures from the people, culture and nature on the island. Stay tuned. More to come.

Kärlek
Annette
