Caribbean Insta

We have been home for two weeks and have no plans to travel for a while. I have picked up plants for the new rear garden design, scrubbed bathrooms and floors, and unpacked all the luggage. Now I can finally write a post without a mound of laundry or dust covering the floors.

As I mentioned in the last post, we took a short cruise in the Caribbean. I am not a big fan of traveling on ships, but Spenc and Kirk love them.

We boarded the ship on Father’s Day and after checking out our room, headed straight for the first of many endless buffet meals. We then explored the ship and the boys played a quick game of putput golf.

Our first stop was on Grand Turk where we took a kayaking tour through a creek. I apologize in advance to all of you who follow on Instagram as I didn’t pull out my camera.

We saw little of the island as we traveled to our destination, which is my biggest complaint about cruising.

While on board the Heat won the NBA playoffs. They broadcast three games on the pool deck while tons of fans routed for their favorite.

Our next stop was Jamaica. We took a tour around Ocho Rios ending with some relaxation at the beach.

Next stop…a water park in the Bahamas. Most of it was too adventuresome for me, but they did have Starbucks! I had been reduced to drinking watered down fountain iced tea with a splash of lemonade for days.

A spirited band wandered through just before we left.

I loved this building we glimpsed on the way back to the ship. Spencer lost his cruise card, but they did let him back aboard.

Before we knew it we were back in Miami and off to the airport for a flight home. All in all we had a great trip. Maybe by writing this post I will actually remember where we stopped!
