Dinner on the Boat


Okay, this is the last post that I am doing on the cruise.

It is just such a unique experience that I wanted to give it it’s due time.

Every evening at dinner they had a category on the menu of “something that you always wanted to try”.  One time it was shark bites, another time it was alligator, they had snails, and sushi.   Here is a picture of frog legs, they were good.  Of course, I tried this category every night.

They came with the tiniest rolls and butter.

Portobela mushroom salad.

This was our head waiter.

I miss him.

  I would love to have a waiter and chef at home on a regular basis.

Oh yes, the waiters sing, dance,

and dance,

dance on top of things,

and dance.

Our tables were in the balcony.  Here is a picture of the first floor dining.

Did I mention that the waiters danced for us?

We dressed up for dinner every night.

Uncle Gary – Aunt Sherri – Uncle Ted – Me – Cousin Angel

In my opinion, you can never spend too much time with family that also are some of your best friends!!!

Vacation in the Eastern Caribean


I found some pictures of us enjoying ourselves on the cruise ship.

This night is “captain’s night”  where the captain  meets the cruisers, so everyone puts on their best duds and their best behavior.

Here is a picture of Big Ran, Me and The Captain of the ship.

I think Jerald has something in his eye here.

Jerald, Aunt Sherri, and Bill.

See what I mean by best behavior?!?

Aunt Barbara, Bill, and Aunt Sherri.

This is Mark and Connie with their daughter, Courtney and her boyfriend, Andrew.

I just love this picture!!

Aunt Debbie and Uncle Gary, he reminds me so much of my dad.

Connie and Mom.

Mark and Connie

Vickie looks like she is glowing!

Vacation agrees with her!!

Sandy and Pat

Bill and Aunt Sherri, two heads are better than one?!?

Uncle Gary doing a little karaoke.

And Vickie singing some Patsy Cline.

This picture is in San Juan.  It is of the ceiling in the capital building.

It was beautiful in there.

They had bronze statues of every president that visited while they were in office.  Aunt Sherri and Lora are liking President Kennedy.

Yes, there was a McDonald’s in San Juan.

In Saint Thomas we took a jeep cruise.  Check this out!

I always like to take a picture of my feet in the sand so I can look back on it and remember that feeling.

Cruise Ship Fun


This is a picture from Aunt Barbara of part of the ship.

As you can see, the ship has a big slide on it, so a few of us had to try it out.

Here’s Lora first.

Then Jerald, her husband.

Next is Bill.

Then Aunt Sherri tried it.

Tricia rocked the slide.

This is Aunt Debbie, I just love her expression.

And still!!

Uncle Gary might have bit off a little more than he could handle.

Not!!!

Aunt Debbie did wait around for him just in case, while Alan comes busting down the slide.

Extreme close up of Alan.

A shot of some of our group in the hot tub, relaxing and having fun.

There was a lot of dancing going on but these two shots are the only ones that I got.

Uncle Gary by himself and Uncle Gary and Tricia.

There were 31 of us from our area that went on this cruise together.

Here are a few random shots of everyone in the big auditorium.

They have lots of different things to take part in for fun on the ship and one of them was being an alcohol mixologist.  Bill signed up for this and Alan and I were judges.  Bill won!  Here are a few exciting pictures of this.

I hope you enjoyed sharing our fun on the ship.

We had a great time!

Fun in Miami


I took these pictures after we boarded the ship.

This is what it looks like when you are pulling out of the port in Miami.

Beautiful, especially when you live in Missouri.  In February, Missouri is pretty drab, unless it is snow-covered.  Then it is pretty.  But, the weather, the palm trees, the tropical flowers in bloom, the slight breeze, aaaaahhhhh!  Need I say more?!

Smut (Mark), my cousin, Pam’s husband, looks like he is ready for some vacation!!

My cousin, Pam or Pedro to her best friends, is ready, too!

Big Ran and I just taking it all in.

Big Ran put a small down payment on this winter home for us!!  Yeah right!!

We are coming upon Miami beach.

Miami beach looks beautiful and crowded.

But wouldn’t you just love to have the option of going to the beach on a daily basis?!

Or even weekly?!

Aunt Sherri,  Angel, and I made the big screen!!

If you are thinking about going on a cruise, I definitely recommend it.  It is sooo relaxing.  No cooking, cleaning, working, no specific schedules, and great islands to explore.

San Juan


Yes, we did make it back from the Eastern Caribbean.

I am having issues with my camera downloading to the computer!

So here are a few pictures of our visit to San Juan, Puerto Rico.

This is a picture of the beach and a little waterfall.

It was beautiful!!

 

This is “Old San Juan”.

All the white that you see is the cemetery.

These are pictures of the fort.

The streets are very narrow there.  Even for walking!

We found a little cigar shop where they were making them right there in front of us.

They told us that they sell an average of 200 cigars a day.

We even did a little planking in Puerto Rico!!

Aunt Debbie, Me, Uncle Gary, Alan, and Angel
