Good Evening to All!
As I state in my profile, while my blog is mainly to glorify God, to get His Word out and to maybe in my small way help people understand how important it is to develop an intimate relationship with God, I sometimes like to add an extra twist in here and add a post here and there about other things such as our travels.
Unfortunately, these pictures do not do the sunset justice. It was so beautiful! It just shimmered! ONLY GOD COULD MAKE ANYTHING THIS BEAUTIFUL! The sea was different shades of blue depending on the depth, ranging from Navy blue, to bright green to turquoise. God definitely used His paint brush in the Caribbean!
This time, we took a Cruise on the "Carnival Cruise Ship "Magic". It was WONDERFUL! First off, the ship was gorgeous and we could eat anything we wanted day and night. (I'm surprised I didn't gain 200 pounds!) LOL! There was all sorts of things to do on the ship, although we didn't do that much. We were content to sit out on our balcony and look at the turquoise water go by.
Below is looking down from the 11th deck into the glass elevators and lobby. The cone looking objects are pink and greenish blue lights.
Our first stop was Jamaica. We disembarked the ship and went on an excursion to Dunn's River Fall's. It was beautiful. The water fall stretches from 600 feet in the air. A lot of the group we were with actually CLIMBED up to the top! NOT THIS KID! I have trouble walking on dry ground, let alone on wet rocks.
Our second stop was by FAR my FAVORITE. It was at Grand Caymen Island. While we were there, I made friends with some of the local inhabitants and actually went swimming with them.
I am actually petting a stingray. The barbs were removed of course so he couldn't sting people. I always thought they would be "slimy" like a fish, but they really aren't. I must say, he had pretty eyes on top of this head.
Meet Galileo and Nepatin. They were so sweet. These guys were 8 and ten years old, but the average dolphin in captivity lives to be in his late 20's. I had a "ball" with them!
Believe it or not Galileo is carrying the ball with his fins! LOL! Their tail is so strong it is like hands swimming through the water.
Tandem power swimming!
I know this one is hard to figure out, but Galileo and Nepatin each was behind me each one pushing a foot. The higher I held my arms the higher they pushed me in the air to dive! SO COOL AND SO MUCH FUN.
Well, I have many more pictures to share of our trip, but I had so much fun at the Dolphin Encounter, I wanted to share it with you.
Our trip to Cozumel, Mexico was fun, but more relaxed. We shopped til we dropped, then took a horse and buggy ride to a little outside restaurant and ate some authentic Mexican food, then back to the ship we went.
My hubby said he enjoyed it so much he would like to go again, but just STAY on the ship and be waited on hand and foot and eat! We had a wonderful cabin steward named Anetolli who was literally at our "beck and call". He was bringing us cokes to drink, cleaning our room and making our bed every day and turning down our bed with chocolates on our bed every night. He even made us a different towel animal every night!
Well, I hope you have enjoyed experiencing my vacation with me. As I said I have many more pictures but of course couldn't post them all. I will say, if you EVER get the chance to go on a Caribbean Cruise be sure and do it!
We are hoping to be able to save up enough money from now til May to take a LONG vacation to Alaska with our travel trailer, so that will be something to look forward to also.
Good Night to All and May God Bless!
