The Ceremony

Here is the ceremony. The magistrate who performed the ceremony compared marriage to a guitar, while one string by itself can produce a pleasant sound when all the strings are played carefully the result is fanatastic!

Marriage in Paradise

On my last trip to St. John I was fortunate to meet a younger couple from Austria at the Caneel Bay moorage.
About three weeks ago while doing the Sunday afternoon music ritual at Honeymoon Beach on Water Island I  met Sabine and Hanses again. They announced they were to be married and asked if I would come and witness the event.

Last Friday, eight cruisers gathered at the magistrates office in St. Thomas and we witnessed the ceremony! Afterwards, we gathered on the waterfront and drank several many bottles of champers then at 1200 we had a fantastic lunch at Gran Cru near the cruise ship dock. As there were no cruise ships in that day it was fantastic.

Sabine and Hanses own a Amel Santorini and plan to sail and cruise until they are 60 years old. About another 13-14 years, so plenty of adventures in store.

Water Island

Sundays is usually laid back on Water Island. Boat chore or two in the morning then at 1500 the music starts at Joes Beach Bar. Eric Stone usually is the resident musician. If you have ever been to a Latts and Atts party, Bob Bichin flys Eric in to play for the cruisers parties.

Eric lives on St Thomas so we see him most Sundays.
