Okay, but what about those of us who aren't polite company?


Thats bizarre, and freaking awesome all at the same time!

I never would have even thought of that, but it DID sound like they were hinting. :)


Love it :) When my brother got married, he and my sister-in-law had the ceremony in Bermuda and invited both families. We made one big family vacation out of it and they stayed in a cute little B & B, away from us when they wanted some privacy. Everyone had a fantastic time. Sounds like you guys did too!

I always thought the whole thing was the parentals' idea!

'Course, the way you describe it, I suppose I was right.

My favorite part of the trip was seeing our dad say "Boo Boo Jam's" with a straight face, as casually as if he were talking about the auction yard.

I was quite surprised that Madame X gave us such a nice "shout out". I love your site.
How nice of your husband to accomodate his inlaws on his honeymoon.
I'm curious about how long it took you Dad to take the guys to Orient Beach.

That challenge? Cortney at:


gave it to me. Have fun,


Laurie that is amazing! I would so do that with great parents as yours sound like. Way to go!

Certainly better than a kegger tubing down the Sac River on a blistering Labor Day Weekend... On a Nick Asshat honeymoon


How AWESOME!! Our honeymoon: one week with his dad (L.A.), one week with his mom (Eugene, Oregon), and one week with my parents (Rainier, WA).

You have a sister?

You know, I think people would have a lot more fun if they did take folks with them on their honeymoon. We went to the mountains (in the SE that means the Smokies), and it was kinda boring. Well, the parts you can talk about in "polite company" were boring anyway.

I don't know if the Marina Port La Royale had been built when you were there, but it's the Marina in Marigot behind all those buildings across from and south of the market.

THAT is our favorite place to go .. well, that and the Ma Ti Beach Bar & Grill on Bay Nettle. That's a completely idyllic beachside restaurant .. we always eat in a palm-frond-surrounded glorified picnic table on the beach when we're there.

Oh ... MomBomb: "hep-cats"? That sounds like something my FATHER would have said, and he was born 100 years ago this September!

The Mom Bomb

Your parents are hep-cats!


Every now and then I go on a cruise with a group of friends, and St. Martins was one of our stops, last time around.

The photo of the butterfly on the phallic flower? Butterfly farm. I loved the market in Marigot - shot some great pics of a spice seller's table there, and would have taken more but the family was getting antsy (I think they somehow knew I'd be at it for at least another hour if they let me).

Cool honeymoon!

Shade and Sweetwater,

Well, a week in Florida isn't as glamorous a honeymoon as St Martin or Anguilla, but our parents DID go on our honeymoon. But that was OK because we didn't.

See .. our first married abode was with mom and dad, in the basement of their home (all fixed up nice) with the BR & bath upstairs. Since we couldn't get time off work, mom and dad went to Florida and Peg and I went home. So .. the scenery wasn't great but we had 3000 sq ft in which to spend the week.

Next anniv will be #50, so I guess it was a pretty good start.

IF that's Capt Oliver's Marina visible thru the railing, that's one of the places Peg and I always have lunch when we go to St Martin. I love watching the pelicans sitting on the posts out in the water.


Wow, what a great idea! Family can be fun to travel with, especially when they already have the lay of the land!
So glad you had a great time (sans hurricane)!


I'm so jealous and I think it's great you did a family vacamoon!

Now ex Hubby was stationed in Iceland and me in CA. He came back, we married in Vegas on a weekend, spent 3 weeks together and then back to our separate duty stations! UGH, but I did visit Iceland 3 months later which was fantastic :)

I think that is absolutely awesome. I love traveling with my parents, but we don't do it often enough anymore.

Your parents sound like a lot of fun.

Mental P Mama

I think that was the plan all along...and I bet it was a blast!


Two similar if unrelated thoughts - 1) We vacationed in Anguilla BWI in 1992 and are still plotting our return. Our friends' parents had built a villa there and they hosted us. To say it was fantastic would be a gross understatement.

2) Our own honeymoon was spent mooching off of friends in Europe - we spent only two nights in a hotel by ourselves, unless you count the overnight train from Frankfurt into Paris. Otherwise, we stayed with friends everywhere we went. Romantic, eh? But so damn much fun. Shoestring budget aside, I wouldn't have changed a thing.
