What a fun trip! It’s amazing how once you get south of the Bahamas you can pretty much count on perfect weather. We have had only one trip where it was actually cool and it rained most of the trip. And that’s in 12 years of cruising.
The ship we were on last week was Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas. It is the biggest cruise ship out there right now. It carried over 6000 passengers, plus almost 3000 crew. Insane. And, yes, I do get claustrophobia and too-freaking-many-people-o-phobia. Sometimes I want to just scream at people to get the heck out of my way. Humans are a pain in the ass in huge crowds. BUT…in spite of that, we had a wonderful time. (I just had my bitchy moments, that’s all.).
My new camera is going to be great fun! Here’s a pic I took of our ship leaving the port in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Ok, we went paddle boarding…..that was great. It took me awhile to stand up…my balance is sucky (just ask yoga teacher)…..Here’s the bay we paddle boarded in.
Look at the color of that water! WOW! It’s always amazing to see it. Our ship is behind us…we biked around the bay from the ship to this fort. St. Maarten is definitely my favorite island!
We stopped on the way back to the ship at the Blue Bitch Bar. I got an awesome teeshirt.
So, now it’s home to ice, rain, fog and by tomorrow night, more snow! Viva la difference…..(I’m sure I didn’t spell that in French).
It’s so good to be home….by day six I am chomping at the bit to be back with the animals!
