Here are some more pics of mission life on St Martin:
Terri is tending to a minor injury to Elder Johnson while the other elders are emailing home on P-day
If you look closely, your will see the form of a bird on the window. We had a pigeon hit the window and it left an impression–you can almost see the whole bird!
More dredging of the bay is going on. They are trying to deepen the water at some locations so that larger boats can come into the harbor area.
On one of my recent morning walks I decided to walk down and see the Princess Casino. It is a large area with a casino, hotel, restaurants, and lots of dock space for very expensive boats!
This is the hotel, situated on a separate little island
This is a small boardwalk area by the docks that have a number of restaurants
A better look at the large hotel
They had some pretty magnificent boats parked along the walkway
The casino and hotel are almost directly across the bay from where we live. We live on the right edge of the right hill in the background.
This is a little dance hall and music venue that is used, and is just in front of the casino
This is the front desk area
And this is the casino
These are pictures of the original Princess casino, before they rebuilt and expanded
I also tried walking a little on the French side of the island. If you turn right off the causeway you come to the casino. If you turn left you enter the French side of the island
This is a peace memorial, dealing with the agreement that has been in place between the two halves of St Martin for many years.
It was a nice walk, and I still have lots of things to see and explore while walking in the morning.
