Our last “planned” stop was at St. Kitts and the coolest part was it was the day we celebrated our anniversary AND Thanksgiving! We had both heard great things about St. Kitts and had almost picked this island to stay at versus our cruise. St. Kitts has a little bit of everything on their island from the tropical trees to amazing beaches. We LOVED it too!
View from the ship while we waited to disembark.
We decided to stay pretty low key for our trip and took a tour of the island on a bus. I LOVE all the brick buildings and the way the islanders use bricks and rocks.
Cool rock garden! Mom, this is a garden I can probably keep alive 😀

We stopped at this tourist spot where they hand make all sorts of stuff using a special weaving process. They make things out of cotton, banana leaves, etc.
The grounds were beautiful. I LOVED this little chair and all the trees.
Who knew cactuses grew in the Caribbean.
I think this tree totally looks like an elephant.
More of the red fruits that grow randomly on coconut trees. I STILL do not know what they are 🙂
This is their national tree called a Bread Fruit tree.
While we were waiting for our bus driver, we saw a TON of caterpillars climbing all over the flowers. They were HUGE!
The second place we stopped was Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park.
We hiked up these fun steps to the top….
Then, crossed this bridge to check out the fortress.
The only “guard” watching out over the fortress now 🙂
When we returned we did some shopping then returned to the ship to celebrate our anniversary at Cagney’s Steak House on the ship. More on that in my next recap of the ship and Miami!
Be sure to check back tomorrow for a GIVEAWAY!!!! I will also start food blogging again with my NEW challenge to be revealed tomorrow along with recipes – yeah!
Off to finish watching THE BIGGEST LOSER FINALE – YAHOOO!!! I LOVE that show but am completely sad it will be over after tonight 🙁 until next season.
For those who watch ~ who are you rooting for to win and what did you think of the finale?
