Ben’s spring break happened to coincide perfectly with the end of my first trimester sleepiness and aversion to all things scented… So we booked a last hoorah (aisle seats, of course, for easy airplane bathroom access), to visit his parents in St. John. Three bottles of SPF 50, endless snorkeling, some good books and lots of [virgin] pain killers enjoyed all the while beside my honey made for one happy pregnant woman. One more wonderful adventure added to our list – so many more ahead.
While in St. John visiting Ben’s parents, we hooked up with their friend Mindy who has recently launched a charter business for visitors and locals alike. We spent the day on her boat, Gypsea Girl, taking photos for her new website — my first time to shoot on a boat — it took some serious balance concentration. Mindy brought the Dingy along so that we could get some photos of her boat from the ocean, which was such a great idea. It was so neat to see the islands from the ocean; we had such a great time getting to know Mindy, her sister, Misty, and their friend Jason. Ben and Papa Glass, along with the others, were the Gypsea Girl’s models for the day. Mindy has such a great personality and saw that our entire experience was fun and relaxing. And the boat is amazing! The sea was a bit rough while we were out, but Gypsea rode so smooth. She’s got a fabulous spot up front for sun lounging and a wonderful canopy that pulls out when you need some shade. Mindy & the Gypsea Girl are a perfect combination for a fun day out on the water! The Gypsea Girl is available for island tours, snorkeling destinations, hiking trips, you name it. Mindy & her husband, along with their little boy, have lived on a sailboat in the Caribbean for 11 years now, so she knows her way around and the best spots!
Thanks so much for the fabulous boat day, Mindy. Best of luck to you and the Gypsea Girl!
