The party was over. Prince and Snow were whisked off to the royal jet. Prince had booked a fast getaway to Curaçao for their honeymoon. They would not get to spend long in paradise. The coming weekend his father is calling for the royal presentation of Snow and Prince to the kingdom. He told the couple he had a proclamation to make. Prince was puzzled but King would not divulge more of his thoughts to his son instead urged him go relax and have a wonderful time with his bride. Prince did not really mind the short trip. He was just happy for a couple of days alone with his bride.
They spent the first day doing a bit of shopping in a local village and
a quick trip thru a photo booth for honeymoon portraits..
For dinner they enjoyed a light repast at a small local coffee shop.
Even tho travel had made Snow feel a little off , it did not stop her from beating the tar out Prince on a video game machine.
It was off to an early “bedtime” for the lovebirds as adventure awaited them the next day!
A little sightseeing was on the list today. They happened upon a dark little shop run by the local voodoo priest! Even tho they were a tad creeped out they ventured in to have a look around. Prince reached to get a volume from the dusty shelf and all of a sudden there was creaking sound and the shelf began to move ever so slowly. There was an opening behind the shelf. Snow and prince stop, transfixed for a moment. The smell of damp dirt and minerals reach their noses and they could hear the faint sounds of water. They looked at each other and then with a grin slipped behind the shelf. As they descended the stairs their eyes quickly grew accustomed to the low light. When Snow and Prince hit the floor of the cave they were met with a fanciful site.
Statuary, flowers and sweet little underground stream. As they explored they found mysterious caves, enormous statues, fountains and even a wishing well. Slipping their street clothes to the ground, revealing their bathing suits beneath, they dove into the refreshing waters of the underground stream.
They agreed that this was a most amazing place to explore. Being together made it all the more special!
It is the last day of this little hasty junket. Spending yesterday in the caves was so much fun BUT today it was to be all sunshine, sand and salt water! Prince and Snow enjoyed a quick bite of lunch alfresco
and off they trotted with beach towels and sunblock in hand! After a day in the sun they head back to their room to get cleaned up and off to a night on the town.
The night life in Curaçao is said to be without a doubt the best in the islands. There is just no way these two dancing machines can pass up a night at the club. They head over to the Salinja district, where most locals party. DJ Scruffy Duffy was pumping out the tunes and keeping the crowds entertained.
Prince and Snow could resist getting a little closer when the music slowed down.
Near the end of the evening they slid up to the bar to do a little sampling of some local brew and enjoy some quiet conversation.
Tomorrow they are headed back to the Chateau and all the pandemonium that seems to radiate from that place. Truth be told they were kind of excited to go back. Prince yearned to show his lovely bride to the people and for Snow … well it is not every day you get presented to a kingdom in a gala event!
