Day Three -- New England Patriot Cheerleaders Have Arrived!

Day Three -- New England Patriot Cheerleaders Have Arrived! - 07/24/2018 02:30 AM

I woke early to see the sunrise and the start of another beautiful day. Most of the day was a bit overcast with a few brief, and I stress brief, showers. Breezy on the beach, never broke a sweat. It was a perfect beach day. But first a quick trip to Sunny Foods which I liked better than Fair Way Market--larger selection of produce and meats and some seemed fresher than at Fairway. I just wish they would fix or put back the traffic light at the intersection of AT Illidge road and Bush Road. Proceed with caution going through that intersection.

The cheerleaders for the New England Patriots arrived at Divi today for a photo shoot. There are activities with the cheerleaders planned for each day. I think they are here to take photos around the Island for a new calendar. We are GB Packer fans so it's not a huge deal for us, but if it attracts a few more tourists to Divi and St Maarten, we are all for it.

Owner update this morning--informative update and a pitch. We will certainly use the Divi dollars over the next two weeks. For those familiar with the property, the pool near the casitas is scheduled to be finished in November and include a swim up bar and roti shack. We took a quick look at the work being done and all of the casitas are under renovations as well.

Everyone was tired after a long day of doing nothing and we decided to stay in tonight. I'm always amazed at how tired you can be from doing nothing. Hopefully we will have more to report tomorrow.

Sunny Foods has always been one of my favorites. Even though Grand Marche was bigger, Sunny Foods appeared to be the favorite of the locals. Also it's just up the road from a laundromat we use.
We have seen many accidents at that light. People racing in and out of Philipsburg seem to lack caution.
If the cheerleaders shed it all and do a photo shoot on Orient Beach, I may stop being an Eagles fan and buy a calendar.
I did not appreciate the advantages and wonders of doing nothing until later in life.
Enjoy your vacation. We can't wait til December when we will return.

Agreed, not a Patsies fan, but any event that brings more attention to the island is a good thing.

Sounds like a great day, doing nothing!! Hope you accomplish more of the same today! grin

Here in New England we are aware most people in the rest of the country are not Patriots fans. Saw a T shirt yesterday which said: New England Patriots versus Everyone Else

Like they say, haters gonna hate! But as o2bnsxm said, its better than nothing, and it does bring some attention to the island! Wish i was there no matter which team was represented.

Same to you. At 40 we renewed our vows in St Maarten. We will celebrate our 50th in St Maarten along with our Daughter and son in law"s 20. They were married in St Maarten too.

Looks like the first group of cheerleaders left and a fresh group just arrived today.

Re: Day Three -- New England Patriot Cheerleaders Have Arrived! - 07/29/2018 04:32 AM

Yes, new group today. The Tango was parked off shore for a photo shoot early this morning. They used it as a back drop for their photos. Lots of photos being taken on the grounds of Divi today with the new group.

I happened to see on YouTube this morning the photo shoot that the New England Cheerleaders did, and thought I would post the link. There is some footage of Divi and some of the areas around the island.

Thanks for posting the video--always nice to be reminded of a great vacation. I enjoyed seeing the interview with the new GM at Divi, Anne Marie Brooks--she is the best hire they've ever made!
