Larry and I were lucky enough this year to steal away to St. Martin for 6 weeks. One of our most enjoyable days there were spent with our friends John and Cindi Berglund. They created and own a perfumery on the island. Not only do they make a lot of wonderful unique perfumes and other skin products, they also offer classes where you can make your own one of a kind perfume. They are voted the number one place to visit while on the island. Needless to say after several years living and working on the island they have made many good friends. In early march every year the Heineken Regatta takes place on St. Martin. Its a 3 day event with a lot of sailboat races with people from all over the world coming to race in it. John and Cindi have started an annual get together every year where they charter a large boat and get up close and personal to the races. This year “team Tijon” had 75 people come together from all over to join in the fun. One of the 1st things we did when we made our plans to St. Martin this winter was to sign up to go sailing with “team Tijon”. It was great fun and I do believe it will be a annual event for us in the future. We met a lot of people,drank some rum punch,danced a little, and took some awesome photos of sailboats.
