We ended up on the island of Saba, which is home to the highest peak in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the shortest commercial runway in the world, the birthplace of Saban Lace... and no beaches. So we got to hike, dive (I stay on shore for this), eat fish, drink rum, and attend a Lace Guild Meeting (aka Saban Stich N' Bitch!)!
As I like to do, here's a peek at our winter escape in pictures....
|Walking towards Mount Scenery on our first day|
|Getting ourselves psyched for the climb|
|These stairs are my new favorite work out!|
|A birds eye view of the world's shortest commercial runway|
|Me and my trusty map....|
|Another day, another hike, and a view of a dive boat and The Pinnacle|
|My girl and I learned to make lampwork beads at JoBean's.... |
we are signing up for more classes in Corning this spring, SO FUN!
|Watching a Saban Lace Sampler in action|
|WOW.... Saban Lace makes what I do seem like a walk in the park!|
|A VERY special pillow case....|
|The view from our porch in the early morning.... I'll be holding onto this until winter is over!|
Of course the whole time I was there I worked on projects for the book... maybe not the most cost effective way to get a book written : )!
