We have just returned from our Caribbean cruise. It was wonderful and relaxing, but I am also glad to be back on good old terra ferma. The Musical Gardener has discovered that he is really not a sailor at heart - motion sickness is not a pleasant state. Yes I chugged Gravol like candy, and finally resorted to a patch which helped until I accidently scraped it off with my snorkeling gear.
The weather was wonderful, sunny most days and just pleasant temperatures. The food was way too good - yes I endeavoured to be as well behaved as I could be - I had my oatmeal every morning for breakfast and had lots of fruit and veggies. Actually dinner time was usually not a big issue, because by then the queasiness had usurped most of the appetite.
Entertainment was great aboard ship - the Missus got quite into karioke. I even won one of the Who Am I trivia quizzes and have a ship trophy to prove it.
So I thought I would share a few photos of the trip over the course of a few blogs - no I don't intend to bore you with all the details and every last picture, just a few. Today let's just look at some of the flowers that we saw.
|What we left in Syacuse on December 29th.|
|A few short hours later aboard the Carnival Liberty in Miami|
|Hibiscus in bloom everywhere|
|Plumbago growing wild.|
And that is about all I have to say for today.
Musings and meanderings from the Musical Gardener.
