More Pictures from Trip!

I took Susan and Bob's picture while we were waiting at the buffet place to get off the ship. We'd had our breakfast and there was no rush to get off the ship because we didn't have to fly anywhere. It was extremely cold in Florida while we were gone and when we got back. Here's a picture of fruit trees that had been sprayed to try and save the fruit. Click on it and you'll see the ice-covered branches. It was a strange sight.

Last Port--St. Maarten!

St Maarten was a beautiful island too. We went to a butterfly farm. That was very informative. A blue one landed on Susan's finger and stayed there for a while, A woman was holding an 'owl' butterfly, which I had never heard of. There were hundreds of butterflies there. We were driven all over the island-the Dutch side and the French side--interesting sland!!

On to St. thomas!

St. Thomas was a beautiful island. We drove up into the hills to see the harbor. It was a little hazy, but you can see all the cruise ships in port. Ours was the the end one of this side and one of the biggest! The Oasis of the Seas is bigger! We also went to Blackbeard's Castle and then walked into town from there. There is a museum to amber there and this waterfall is made completely of amber. It was so pretty. Legend says if you run your hand down it, you'll have good financial luck, so we had to rub our hand on it!! Hope it works! 2009 wasn't a good year in the car wash. Already, because of the snow, 2010 has been better in the car wash, so maybe it's working!!!

Sailing on to Nassau!

On Sun we sailed into Nassau. We saw the new resort 'Atlantis'. The harbor is beautiful. We went on a land and sea adventure. They took us up into the hills. The harbor is pretty from here. Bob and Susan are observing! We had our picture taken with Monica the Jackass. Who's the jackass? We went in a 'submarine' to view the reefs. We also went to Magen's bay--one of the 10 best beaches in the world. The color is unbelievable and it was so pretty! Our ship took off at 2:00 pm so we didn't have a lot of time to shop.

Off Our Cruise!

We left out of Port Canaveral, FL. on 1/2/10--good way to start off the new year! We had a great time and it went way to fast. This is leaving Port Canaveral behind. Disney ship is black on the bottom and white on top. The other ship we think is the Monarch which is a Royal Caribbean ship. Our stateroom was lovely with a different towel animal almost every night! More pictures to follow.
