This morning on my cruise I awoke to a different pier that I usually go to at Curacao. It appears that the ship Aida arrived earlier before us.This must be a new dock that was built before the last time I was here.
Here is where we were taken to the center of the town to began our excursion. But before I wanted to get a photo of where we are at.
We began our excursion where the moveable bridge is at.
Luckily our Trolly driver took his time allowing me to take some good photos.
This is a photo of a heart made of junk.
I wanted to show you where we were in Curacao.
There was a ship but it was a small cruise ship. Our ship would be to large to be able to be there. The Reflection was down further down in the picture
This was the ship in the picture. It was a Holland of America cruise ship.
We now continue our our excursion in Curacao.
Ordinarily this area would be filled with fishermen selling the fish they caught and they cut the fish right there. We were told it was better that we were there now because the smell of cut fish would be so strong.
This next house is why I love Curacao.
The homes are decorated and each one seems to have a story to talk about.
This is the Governor's home
Now this next home has wonderful story to it.
This home is called " The Wedding Home." The story is that the daughter was getting married so he wanted to give his daughter a gift that she would never forget, A Wedding Home.
My dinner friend, Paul told me something he does on every cruise is taking a picture of the license plate of each island. I like the idea so my first license plate is of Curacao.
This the Catholic Church. It just came out of mass so I didn't want to take a photo of the people walking out og the church.
The other church is the Methodist Church. Did you notice that both churches have the same color.
I said I loved Curacao and here are the reasons.
The lady talking as we drove by informed us that " Dushi " is a statement that people say so she told us to say " Dushi " as we past by and we did and the people called back to us.
I love these large letters of CURACAO.
We are now finished the excursion but I wanted to see more and I wanted to find out what was on the other side of the moving bridge.
As we arrived to our ship, my friend Nancy and her good Fran arrived the same time after taking a long walk around Curacao. They both the same hat that they had bought.
I wish I got that hat. Oh well, maybe the next time.
That's it from Curacao.
