I loved the beach at Grand Cayman. It had been quite a while since I parked my body on a beach, anywhere, for more than 10 minutes, so the two hours spent there were just glorious. Hot, but we had shade to lie in, and cool-to-tepid water in the ocean to dip into.
For me, Jamacia was a "meh". Nice to do the popular activities, but I'm not interested in a return visit to the island. If I find myself on another Caribbean cruise that stops at Jamaica, I might venture off for a walkabout, but that's probably all.
I took some photos from my window seat on the airplane as we zipped across the USA from Sacramento to Boston, and then from Boston to Baltimore. It's quite fascinating to traverse the country, look down at any given time, and not really know where the heck you are. So much of our country is either farm land, with the neat acre squares of green or yellow, or soaring mountain ranges from the Pacific past Colorado.
Well, another trip has come and gone. Next up --- Alaska (again). Two weeks on HAL's Zaandam, leaving July 16. We visit Ketchikan, Juneau, Kodiak, Sitka, Homer, Anchorage, Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Victoria, BC, and leave/return via Seattle. I'm traveling with my bestie Adrienne. We're lucky we get to spend the equivalent of a month together this year. 2 weeks in Bermuda/Canada in May, and now 2 weeks in Alaska. I'm stoked!
Not sure if I'll be posting "live" or not -- these last posts were done post trip, and it actually was nice to be able to take my time picking photos and commenting on them. I used to do this a few years ago, as well.
Till next time - here's a cute quote I came across. Fits me to a "t". "I need vitamin SEA".
I love a good wake.
And a good glass of wine......
And a beautiful sunset....
I think the ship staff want me to go home....
Jacob's Ladder glass sculpture in Veendam's atrium. Very pretty.
Oh look, another sunset.......
Somewhere over the Rockies
After the Rockies heading East
Still in Colorado?
I didn't know there were so many little islands off the coast of Boston
This is near Washington DC I think
