Caribbean Cruise Part 3: St. Kitt's

In St. Kitt's we started the day off early with a rainforest zipline adventure.

This was another cruise-affiliated excursion and we loved it.

The adventure started with a terrifying jeep ride up the hills into the rainforest. I literally thought the "jeep" was going to tip over and/or I was going to fall out of the back. Look how thrilled I look.

But I survived and the ziplining was great!

The Mr. clearly had no fear as he held on with only one hand.

The views from the ziplines were so pretty and the zipline was just the right amount of thrilling. The only scary part of ziplining is the "end" of each line. Look at me all balled up in the "breaking" position. Ha!

The views were great! Beautiful forest with the ocean in the distance.

I was glad that I got my parents to do it with us. Here they are racing on the zipline. Go Mom!

After the final zipline a little boy brought his baby monkey over to us! I guess there are monkeys all over St. Kitt's but they are not native to the island.

So stinkin' cute!

After ziplining we took a taxi over to Frigate Bay to spend the afternoon on the beach (Frigate bay is near the St. Kitt's Marriott).

There was an adorable beach bar with cheap cheap Caribbean beers that we thoroughly enjoyed.

And there was a man selling fresh coconuts on the beach. We bought one from him and he sliced it open with a machete for us. Now that's some fresh coconut water!

I loved St. Kitt's so much. The rainforest and the beach were both so beautiful and the island didn't feel that crowded or touristy. I'd definitely love to go back someday.

Tomorrow, I'll conclude the cruise recaps with our days at sea!
