Maho Beach, St Maarten
I discovered that my 100-400 mm lens was too big for my position in the bar. I had been able to go out in front of the bar on the beach in previous visits and be further away from the flight path. The bar’s extensions now covered the rocks that I had stood on. I only had my 50 mm lens with me so this was now my lens!
Our first planes were small ones including this one who banked just over the bar before lining up on the runway.
We were getting hotter and hotter as we waited for the next planes to appear. There was no wind and the umbrellas didn’t stop the sun’s heat.
Just off shore a tourist boat appeared that lowered a boom to create a swimming area.
The small planes kept arriving.
Linda went for a swim while I sat and sweltered waiting for at least one jet to land.
Then the Jet Blue came into land.
Lunch was a cheeseburger plus fries and a couple more beers. I spotted this at the back of the restaurant.
