Caribean Cruse

Today is the day for photos from our Caribean cruse.  The weather was warm and the sea was beautiful blues from lightest aquas to navy blue.  We had smooth sailing most of the time on our way to Jamacia, but the sea around Grand Cayman Island was very rough also around Cozemel and on our way back to Galveston. We went on a tour of Grand Cayman and had to take a small boat from our ship to the island because the ship cannot dock on the island.  The sea was very rough and I had a terrible time getting onto the small boat and getting back onto our boat, but I made it and everyone cheered.  On the island we visited a Rum factory, turtle farm and a brewery.  Grand Cayman is a beautiful island with many trees and many beautiful expensive homes.  There are also many resorts and "off shore banks." 

More photos later
