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.
