AJ Said Goodbye and St. Maarten

Saturdays are Pink amd Sightseeing memes so get ready to have some fun! I hope you do not mind me posting early because I will be traveling tomorrow.
Beverly of graciously hosts Pink Saturday every single week and for that I thank her! Please go over her blog and catch all the pink beauties for this week.

This was AJ's old room in my Florida home. Her mom bought a house so she had to say good bye to it. Yes, it was mostly bright pink with a little blue.

They left the bed here b/c she has outgrown it. My youngest daughter Tina and Scott are picking it up for Brendan. It used to have a tent underneath cause AJ loved to play tent with bedsheets when she was small.
It is mostly empty now cause they moved most of her stuff to the new house but there are more to move and they promised to get everything out by the end of this month. My friend will be renting the house from me and I am happy to have her take over and I am sure she is painting over this wall because she has no small child.
I wasn't sure I would have anything to contribute for Pink Sat. since most of my stuff are in MS and I am still in FL. right now, until I noticed the walls when I was cleaning this room. Hope you enjoyed seeing it.

Because it is a Saturday, we get to go sightseeing too! If you want to participate in Sightseeing Saturday, please enter your name and your permalink below, AFTER you have published your post. I appreciate you joining me.

Another island on the Caribbean we visited was St. Maarten. St. Maarten is divided into 2 territories, the Dutch, which is a part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and not considered European, and the French side, which covers about 2/3 of the island. It is more expensive to shop in the French side than in the Dutch side because of the euro.

This part below is on the Dutch side.
Now, we are on our way to the French side.

Can you tell that I like going to flea markets when I am out of the country? This is on the French side and it is where I bought those 2 French toile tablecloths.

Look at the mangoes! Yummy! I eat them green too.

Yep! I went to the nude beach with my son in law (I was curious, lol!) while John went to the other side with AJ, but I couldn't take it, I was grossed out so I went back to find AJ and John to join them. Picture taking was not allowed but my camera accidentally went off a few times and I was able to smuggle some, but sorry, I am not showing you, LOL!
Beautiful blue aqua colored water and a beautiful blue sky.

I don't know what kind of lizard this is but it was huge.
Even the horses have a good view to look at.

AJ was exhausted and fell asleep in the taxi after swimming and snorkeling.
I hope you enjoyed our Saturday tour. Thank you so much for coming along and a double thank you to participants.

What color is she planning to paint her next room? Those pictures of the beaches are spectacular. That would be my dream to have a little cottage where you could walk out your back door to THAT! Minus the lizard. He's ugly. Sorry Mr.Lizard. I want the view the horses have! Hope you are enjoying your stay in Florida!

What gorgeous shots of the beach. And thanks for NOT sharing your smuggled photos lol. I think I would have been laughing too hard to take a picture. AJ's old room was too cute. Love the striped wall. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Kathy

The picture of AJ with the towel on her head, sleeping, cracked me up!

St. Maarten looks so beautiful. My parents went there with their friends years ago and also enjoyed checking out the sights on the nude beach. Damn, wish you would have posted some pictures of that!

Justine :o )

Great pictures of St Maarten. I have been there twice and loved it both times.

That pink room is REALLY pink. I don't know if I could sleep in something that

Cold, dark, raining all week. Summer is not going to make it to northern Michigan this year. We haven't seen many days over 70! WOWZA! So, with that in mind, Pink Saturday is especially important for me. I sit back and cruise around the blogs filling myself to the brim with my favorite color.

♥Thanks so much for adding a bit of sunshine to my day♥
