we arrived on the 17 on the princess we really had no plans just walk outside and see what comes up.me and my wife.
well as soon as we exited the gate there were taxi men suggesting island tours and beaches.
one of them told us about paynes bay and we said OK lets go.
after a about a half hour drive we were dropped at a little alley leading to a beach.
as we walked down we were already being asked for chairs and umbrellas which the price was not bad so we got one.
as we shed our clothes to expose our bathing suits.immediately a comment was made about my wife.fresh meat or something like that.i just let it go as my wife is very pretty.
we went into the lovely water whee we were attacked by jet ski men talking loud and rough
quarreling amounts each other about who would get us to go.
we declined and nasty comments followed.one said he would take my wife for free, laughing.
now i am 6 foot 7 and 245 lbs and a martial arts expert.
i certainly did not want to start a fight so i took that again.just barely managing to hold back my self.i must admit i did not expect such nasty behavior on a island used to tourist.
finally after the glass bottom boat asked us if we wanted to see the turtles and we said no thanks we went to lie in our chairs and i went to get us some drinks from a little wooden bar
just cokes as we don't drink.5 dollars bds for a coke .wow.
as i returned to my wife a local man was trying to sell her a message said his name was Dr love
we said no thanks as where his hands were before would be not known and i don't really respect strangers wanting to rub down my wife thanks.we sat and chatted at he beauty of the beach.then some more locals tried to sell us jewelery ,he made a point of sitting on my wife's chair within her personal space.she looked at me not happy.
so i told the man we did not need anything right now but thanks.
he also made a comment about my wife.something like to his friends shouting man i would love to hit that.
that was the last straw form me and my wife.
we decided to leave so we walked back down this little alley where by some locals we were questioned why we leaving.i said i was looking to go some where else.they touched me and tried to guide me back to the beach.
i refused and words and slang was used .i asked for a taxi and one was there happily.
we returned to the ship disgusted at the nasty ways of the locals.we went back to our room balcony and suntanned feeling relieved to be away from such bad vibes i would call it.
now i could have beat all those guys with one hand but i just wanted to get out of there with no trouble.i will never return there again,as i do not want to end up hurting anyone.the islands before had none of this.very good to know.
