A Vacation for a Realtor

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty BRE# 01490574

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. 

Have you been slaving at the office and need a vacaton?  I just returned from a 14 day cruise in the Caribbean and would be happy to let anyone who has a desire to visit any of the same islands a synopsis of what we did and my impression of the islands.  We visited St. John; Cabrits, Dominica; Kingston, St, Vincent; Scarborogh, Tobago; Gustavia, St Barts; Virgin Gorda; Ponce, Puerto Rico; Cayo Leintado, Dominican Republic; and Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos.  Some were beautiful and some I wouldn't really care to go visit again.  We like to snorkel and enjoyed that on three islands.  Some of the islands had more beaches than others.  Our whole reason for going there was to snorkel at Devil's Bay at Virgin Gorda.  I had a poster of it for a long time and vowed to "go there some day." 

Do you have a "go there some day wish?"  Maybe it's time to start planning.

Wow, Nancy you really covered a lot of ground with this cruise.  I'd love to do this one someday!  So glad you got a chance to R & R.  It feels great, doesn't it?  Our last cruise was to Mexico for a week.  Loved it.

Hi Nancy,

Yeah, we all work very hard and definitely do deserve a relaxing vacation.  We have to remind ourselves that we deserve to take some time off and just kick back and relax.  Destress if you will. 

Easier said then done for us workaholics, but necessary none the less.

We just spent a wonderful week on Virgin Gorda.  I wonder if I saw your cruise ship in our harbor.  We were at Biras Creek, which I would highly recommend if you head back that way.  www.biras.com

The power of goals is amazing! I know I have my goals on three doors in our home and one on the bathroom mirror! I know I will reach my goal as I can see what it is!

Congratulations of getting out of the rat race for two weeks and welcome to the rain!

Hi Nancy....glad you got to experience so many of the islands on your cruise!   I am fortunate to have a son, daughter-in-law and new grandbaby on St.John, USVI so we visit often.   Choose your favorite island and make it home!
