Caroline & Jeff's Polar Vortex trip!

It’s COLD in Michigan this time of year but right after Christmas we had a string of gloomy days along with just a single January week open at the villa….. Others inquired, but we decided to go ourselves….a very good move!

Weather was perfect of course and it was toes in the sand, here on St Jean Beach in front of the Pearl Beach where we had a nice lunch.

We'd wanted to try this place last trip but ran out of time….so we booked a beautiful afternoon lunch at Hotel Le Toiny over in Grand Cul de Sac….it was gorgeous and the food was excellent, too. We walked the beach and lounged in the pool as well.

We also spend a couple of long afternoons at one of favs the Hotel Manapany on the next bay over from Flamands Blue. We both had massages and I snapped this pic of Caroline waiting for me on the deck afterward just admiring the view.

Our last full day we had a beautiful afternoon swimming here off Shell Beach near the restaurant Shellona.

Such a beautiful setting.
