Like everyone else, we have not been living our normal life for the past year. Our beloved homeschool group closed down about this time last year and other than a few phones calls, texts and some Facebook chats, we haven’t seen our homeschool friends in almost a year. We miss them. Same with our family.Continue reading “Our Normal Life”
That is always the hope when you go on vacation. Not sure our upcoming vacation will be full of rest and relaxation, but are hopefully it will be full of smiles and laughter. After a quick trip to Illinois where we will visit family and friends, hubby and I will head south to Florida withContinue reading “Rest and Relaxation”
I was going thru some photos today and came across some I had forgotten about. Like these from our trip to California last Spring. I think they are photos taken by my sister. Hard to believe that trip was almost a year ago.
It seems that there should be a lot to write about, but my mind is in a bit of a blog fog. So instead I’ll just post a couple more cruise photos because I really do miss our time on the ship. Most of all, I miss the blue ocean waters.
It was our final morning and as always, I got up to head out to the balcony. As predicted, it was foggy. Very foggy! We were sitting still off the Texas coast waiting on the Port Authority to give permission to come into dock. In the distance, we could see some other ships, but theContinue reading “The End of our Cruise”
We boarded the ship full of happiness and excitement about the week ahead, then suddenly our trip was coming to an end. Yet, with a full day ahead of us, we were determined to enjoy it even though we knew tomorrow was D-day (disembarkation day). I headed out to the balcony for one last morningContinue reading “Day 6 – At Sea”
Day 5 was jammed packed with activity. Instead of writing much, I’ll just post some photos Lili and I took while snorkeling as well as some photos from the Dream Works parade. The underwater photos are not the best quality. What we saw was much better than what the camera captured, but at least youContinue reading “Day 5 – Continued”
We woke up to another beautiful day, but due to where our room was on the ship and the direction we were traveling, I wasn’t able to get a sunrise photo 😦 I’m sure it was beautiful though. Yet I still had to take a picture of the morning. I still set out on theContinue reading “Day 5 – Cozumel”
When I went out to the balcony to take my sunrise photos on Day 4, I saw land and a short time later the ship dropped anchor a few miles off the coast of Belize. The only way to Belize and the islands were via tenders that would be running every 30 minutes while atContinue reading “Day 4 – Belize”
When we booked our cruise, the port I was most excited to visit was Roatan. Finally, we were there and I was excited to get off the ship for our day on land. We had an excursion scheduled, so after breakfast, we got off the ship and waited for our escort to lead us toContinue reading “Day 3 – Roatan”
