Caribbean Cruise

Today, I’m sharing some photographs from the cruise we took just before Valentine’s Day.  I think I mentioned that it was our first cruise and we would love to go on another but I don’t think we will become cruise-aholics like some of the people we met up with.  But then again, maybe we will.  It really is like Summer Camp for adults – better than kids’ camps because you get to choose your activities plus you get to have alcohol – hehe!


IMG_0026There were a number of iguanas on the pier when we disembarked in St Thomas. This is a handsome example of one of them.

IMG_0255  Yes, the water was really that colour – don’t you feel warmer just looking at it?  The temperature outside today is minus 15 C, so I’m having a long look to warm myself up.

As you can imagine, I took hundred of photos so it’s hard to choose which ones to post. I’ve tried to include ones that show the gorgeous colours of the Caribbean and the Atlantic Ocean.IMG_0146

IMG_0065We laugh when we see this photo. A nice gentleman offered to take our picture together; we weren’t expecting that the photo would be so off-centred and that our legs would be cut off. We’re happy to have the photograph though!

The weather throughout the week was perfect. A bit too hot for us to stay in the sun for very long but we were always able to find shade to cool ourselves off.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Here are a couple of Valentine Cards that I made on board the Caribbean Princess!



The materials and colours in the cards are quite different that what I have in my own stash but I didn’t care; I was just so happy that a crafts class was being offered!

The cruise was a first for Bruce and I.which took us to many ports including St Thomas, Tortola, Antigua, St Lucia and Bridgetown in Barbados.  It was a great way to get a taste of the islands.

I have more photographs to share in my next post!
