Honeymoon Pictures

Addendum...since a few of you asked...we were married on Dec 22, 2001 (6 1/2 years ago). Thank you for those that used words like "younger" to describe how I look in these pictures and not words like "thinner." Seriously, did I REALLY look like that before pregnancy?!?

A friend asked me recently about our honeymoon after reading #5 on this post. I thought I would dig back and share some photos. Now, this was back in the day before we owned a digital camera (how did we ever survive?!?), so these are scanned from prints. The quality is not nearly as impressive as when you see them in print, especially for the last one, but you can get the idea.

As a refresher, we went to a beautiful resort, Ladera, in Saint Lucia. Our room literally only had three walls. We had our own private plunge pool (a small pool with a waterfall, tree in the center, about 4 feet deep). The first picture is taken in our room! I am sitting by the edge of the pool, with the ocean and the sunset behind me. This was such a happy place...

The twin Pitons which we could see from the restaurant and the larger pool on the resort.

This is Patrick and I in the restaurant. Unfortunately, the picture came out a bit dark here. The restaurant is also open to the outside with a beautiful view. In the morning, they had water guns on your table to ward off the birds...Patrick thought this was just slightly cool.
Have I mentioned before that I love vacation?

Wow! What a neat place to Honeymoon! I didn't recognize you with long hair, since I've only ever known you with it short! :)

Your pics are making me think maybe a weekend trip to Cheju is in order.... no, it is not the same as St. Lucia, but it's enough for a quick "pick me up." :)

The pictures are beautiful - it made me want to get on an airplane and head to St. Lucia! What an amazing place. You guys look so relaxed and happy.

Thanks for sharing!!!

What a beautiful place! Living in Michigan, it's hard to imagine being in a room with only 3 walls. My hubby would appreciate the water gun too!

Kara said...

Ok. That looks so relaxing and fun! You look so young with your long hair. (Not that you look old now. :-))

Awesome pictures.

Wow! What a beautiful place! OK, so for a honeymoon was it strange only having 3 walls? I mean, not to get too personal, but I'm just not sure how I'd feel about that... However, THE VIEW! Looks like paradise!

how long has it been since then?

Janelle said...

That sounds so fabulous!! And you look fabulous!

I wonder what that place will look like when you go back for your 20th? I am sure it will still be fabulous!!

Oh, if only everyone could see your whole honeymoon album! I remember looking at it and just being in total awe of that place!

Wow...seems like forever ago and just like yesterday at the same time...

Hey Lynn! Wow, your wedding is that long ago huh. I think that was the last time that I saw you guys. I clicked on the link on your facebook for this blog. It was really nice to see what you and Pat has been up to.

Love in Christ,
