#DryLandTouristChronicles: I Love SXM Diary….Day 6, 7 & Heading Home


Day 6…..Strolling through Simpson Bay

On Monday, Dane & the rest of the gang flew back home leaving me, at that point, on my own. My iPhone fell at the border on Day 2 & the screen was shattered. It held up but gave way on Day 5.

My Kindle also died & I had no charger.

Anyhow, I woke up on Monday, after a nice night’s sleep & decided to walk to McDonald’s for lunch.

My walk gave me the opportunity to take in the beauty of Simpson Bay.
