Vow Renewal

Sometimes you do things because your wife asks you to do them.

Maybe the excuse to go to St. Lucia again helped. It was ten years and she wanted a vow renewal on the beach instead of a larger diamond.

Vacation of a Lifetime

We booked the vacation of a lifetime in 1999. It would be year 7 of the marriage and Sandals had the all-inclusive thing nailed. No kids, no singles, no surprising bar tab, just all you could eat, drink and take in for a week. Prepaid.

Another Lifetime?

After a few wonderful trips to Sandals St. Lucia we considered traveling to Sandal's "home" island of Jamaica. In 2004 we went to the Royal Plantation. This was a small Sandal's property next to the very popular Ocho Rios property. They were trying a new concept when we went. They were using this small property to test a higher service Level and tried switching to a pay as you go plan from the Sandal's Ultra Inclusive.

I was not thrilled with this new concept. Karen loved the level of service and quieter feel of the property. It was till a great trip, but I asked not to return.
