What can be said that would describe this week - perfect weather, beautiful beaches, terrific food, and no cell service!
Vickie and I had the time of our lives; a virtual second honeymoon. It took a while for us to get acclimated but by day three we both relaxed and started to get in the groove. We sat down with the upcoming day's options in front of us every evening and found out how much we wanted to do or not. It was a piece of cake really, since we both enjoyed the dinner service in the restaurant so much we made that our top priority. The entertainment was also high on the list each day.
After three days at sea we arrived and started our excursions ashore. These we figured out on our own, and chose a different beach each day to visit. Each was different from the one before...we found everything from seclude snorkeling beaches, to popular wave filled locations. Each one was wonderful in its own right. The transportation was good on two of the days - but one day the ferries to Hamilton went on strike which made things a little crazy - we figured out alternatives and made it work just fine.
There were plenty of places to enjoy on the ship as well. we had an inside cabin so we didn't hang out there, but found the lounge chairs on the more secluded decks and the lounges with live entertainment the most relaxing. Vickie had the misfortune of getting a cold-type bug on the last day, so she spent most of that day resting, but by evening we were in the restaurant again eating and went to the show that night as well.
And now I sit on the plane writing this, anticipating 107 degree weather back home, and our next trip somewhere relaxing. But then again, people come to where we live to relax most of the year. So, no complaint today; only a grateful heart for what we were able to enjoy after 33 years...btw - anyone every heard of a 3rd honeymoon?
