Maybe you can even create one of your own!
A year ago on vacation (yes…we go on a lot of vacations … it is our “thing”), a woman asked the Little One “Are you having a fun time with grandma today?” I could have punched her! And since you asked, my reaction yesterday was stunned disbelief followed almost immediately by the thought “This will make a great blog post” to laughter. I think the lady corrected the nurse right away (probably along the lines of “I don’t even know that woman”) and the nurse slunk away to the back of the office–never to be seen again. Needless to say, I’m looking for a new pediatrician.
So, now I can proceed with the post. If you are regular reader, you’ll know we just got back from a Caribbean cruise. My shutterbug husband took 1,800 photos so I’ve been going through them all this week to find some of the best to share. If you want to see even more photos (especially of the ship’s interior), you can visit my husband’s cruise photo albums on Webshots. (Photos from our other cruises can be found there too.) On this cruise, we sailed on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Jewel out of Miami, with stops at the Grand Cayman Islands and Cozumel, Mexico. So, without further ado, here are our cruise vacation photos! Hope you enjoy!
The Norwegian Jewel – Our Home for 5 Days
It was a lovely ship — the Webshots albums give you a tour of our cabin and the public areas.
Ship At Sea 2
You can just see that the sun is ready to burst out from those clouds! I also like the contrast of the blue sky at the top and the hazy yellow sky at the bottom. And again, I love the ship in the background. I always enjoy looking for other ships when sailing.
Of the 100s of sunset and sunrise photos, this was my favorite. It is so vivid and I love the dramatic shape of the clouds in the foreground. Watching the sunsets is one of our favorite cruise activities. My husband watches the sunrises … but I prefer to sleep!
Towel Animals! The Best Part of Any Cruise!
Finding the day’s towel animal on the bed is the Little One’s favorite part of the day. This guy had some little chocolate eyes but the chocolates were eaten before my husband could take the photo. The Little One doesn’t waste any time!
Hubby and the Little One Freezing in Cozumel, Mexico
We went to a great little beach resort (Paradise Beach) while in Cozumel but the water wasn’t too warm. Luckily, I had a cold so I didn’t’ have to go swimming in the water … I just lounged in the beach chairs and blew my nose.
Hubby Getting Tequila Poured Straight Into His Mouth
This was one of the perks of the very easy-going Paradise Beach area. They walk around and pour tequila into anyone’s mouth who wants it. Hubby was quick to accept the offer!
A “Yield” Sign in the Cayman Islands
I always like how other countries have much nicer signs than in the U.S. My all-time favorite sign was in the London Underground where it says “Mind the Gap” instead of “Watch Your Step.” Just a much nicer and interesting way to say the same thing.
And so he doesn’t complain, all photos (except for the two of him) were taken by my amazingly talented photographer of a husband. He fought hard for his digital SLR, and he has earned it!
