We’re home! We got back late last night (well, actually, it was after midnight). We had SUCH a good time! I’m posting a handful of pictures here, but Dr. M is going to do a post for each day of our trip (a travelogue – thank goodness, because I probably won’t remember everything otherwise). Here is the post that he did for our first day: Off we go! Danabug and Dr. M's Big Adventure. You can check his page this week for new posts, or wait until I post the links next week.
Sunday, December 13th
Today was our only day at sea – a very nice antidote to our crazy travel day. This was our view.
We bought two of the pictures that the ship photographer took. This is from dinner in the main dining room that evening. The food was SO GOOD (it’s the number one thing that people say about cruises – it’s true!).
Monday, December 14th
On Monday we took a tour of Barbados. The bus driver was maniacal. Or maybe it was all the other drivers. It was a good thing that everything was so beautiful because otherwise I would have been terrified. It was exhilarating!
Tuesday, December 15th
On Tuesday we took a tour of St. Lucia. Ditto with the maniacal driver & ditto the beauty and exhilaration. One of our stops was a shop that specializes in batik. We had a demonstration & I bought one of my two souvenirs of the trip – a batik fan (the other was a bag from the airport in San Juan - I resisted buying a bag for the whole trip & then caved at the last minute).
We had our anniversary dinner in the main dining room. Another very lovely meal.
Wednesday, December 16th
On Wednesday we were at Antigua. Here is our morning view.
We took a tour of the island. Ditto with the maniacal driver & ditto the beauty and exhilaration. At the end of the tour we had the change to swim in the Caribbean. Fabulous!
Thursday, December 17th
On Thursday we were at St. Maarten. We did NOT take a tour, but we did take a boat to the main part of town, wandered around & had lunch. It was HOT, and the town was basically a large jewelry store. I enjoyed my fish sandwich, but Dr. M got food poisoning from his meal. I’m not saying we’d never go back, but I think we’d do something different if we did.
I had brought some yarn to keep me occupied & made this set – I was pretty sure that I was going to need it when we got home on Saturday (I didn’t pack any warm clothes).
Friday, December 18th
On Friday we were at St. Thomas. We decided to not leave the ship. It was a lovely relaxing day. And our view wasn’t too shabby!
On my daily walk I decided to take pictures of these bizarre busts that were on each of the 10 landings. Someone on Facebook said that they look like drag queens & I have to agree. Also, my calves were a bit sore from hiking all those stairs!
That evening I finished another project – this one is a fall/spring cap.

Hope everyone has a great week!
