Bright Sunshine Saturday

Good sunny Saturday morning her in Amherstburg, Ontario, CANADA. I'm still got the feeling about cruising especially since my cousin's daughter and family just received from the Oasis of the Seas and my friend Jerry is leaving today for his cruise on the Holland of America ship. So decided to keep it up for awhile. I said that next year I'm cruising to two new island so I'm going to show you a little bit about those two.

The first island GRENADA.

 Discover Pure Grenada

Welcome to the Spice of the Caribbean; a place where untouched beauty meets our warm people content with a simple way of life. Grenada offers a lifestyle so pure and authentic that you feel instantly renewed. This enchanting island boasts silky stretches white sand beaches, sunken treasures adorned by corals and unspoiled landscapes undiscovered by crowds.

                          Cruise ships 

Grenada has much beauty.


Grenada is history.

Grenada the town.

Grenada the water.

Grenada is Grenada

Doing this research, I've learned about this island and I'm really looking forward to seeing this new island.

Very Cold Saturday

Hi there everyone. Good morning from a cold morning in Amherstburg, Ontario, CANADA. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Well this is my final blog dealing with my cruise. It will deal with Bonaire and everything towards the end of my cruise.
Earlier you saw how beautiful Curacao was. Now you'll see what Bonaire has for us.

This is the docking area. It looks OK doesn't it.
This was where we took our excursion. It was another trolly around the city but this driver drove quickly.
I began to noticed that Bonaire isn't a Curacao
This next home shocked me.
This in the front of the home.
This was the best looking house so I asked the driver how are the taxes and he said they don't pay any taxes. Maybe that's the reason the places looks like it is. Many people from the US & Canada live there for this reason. 
 This was one interesting thing about Bonaire, they have many cacti and some people even use them to create fences. I'm sure a crook wouldn't want to try to go over it.

This excursion wasn't that good as far as going around the city. The above photo meant we were near the ater now which meant we were near our ship.
There was one very interesting thing I saw though. Have you ever seen a shoe tree? I have.
On the other side of the tree was even a surfboard.
You remember where my ship docked right. Well look at this.
This is the AIDA, the other ship that was also in with us. Well the lady talking about Bonaire said to us" We thank you for joining us today and now you can go back to your ship." YOUR SHIP?????? One man said, " Oops, you have made a big mistake, this isn't OUR SHIP !" They quickly took us back to OUR SHIP . Ha,ha,ha,ha.
Good bye Bonaire. Next island Grand Cayman. We've been there so many times MaryLou & I stayed on board.
Many people were going on shore but Grand Cayman has no dock therefore people are tended to the island.

One comes, fills up, leaves another arrives to get more people. Stop and think about this. This ship has over 3000 people onboard. A dock is simple, tendering must be difficult.
MaryLou & I went to the Solarium pool for the morning after breakfast.
This isn't me. I asked MaryLou to take a photo of me in the pool so you could see me in the darn pool. Well she tried and all she had was black photo. So my friends all I could  show you was this photo.
Yes, those are my feet so that I could prove to you that I had spent time at the pool. You can laugh now.
The Solarium Pool is beautiful. 

We are now on our way to Fort Lauderdale. One very interesting about this cruise and that was the water. Usually you have waves, some times big waves. Well not this time. Once we left Fort Lauderdale the ocean became smooth. I mean really smooth. We had 11 days are great smooth water. One day it even became eerie. The ocean became like glass, like ice.

It was a little scary to see the ocean like this but as I said, 11 days of really no bad waves.

I took a selfie. It's not to good but I wanted to do it to say " Thank You " for taking your time to see my photos of my cruise. I enjoyed it and I hope you did too. 
Until the next time,
             This cruise is finished.

This David, a waiter in the Oceanview Cafe. He was quite a character. He remembered me from last years cruise so asked him if I could taake his photo and this is how he took his photo. We laughed with this character. He was a happy person.
