Who said that art is difficult even if you have no talent at all? There is obviously nothing to it.

Home From Our Cruise

Yesterday was the end of our seven day cruise in the Caribbean. It was enjoyable but our idea of a cruise is more than a week. We would much rather cruise for a month than a week although a week is better than nothing. Now we have to wait for our thirty-three cruise next March from Dubai to Fort Lauderdale.

This video was the high point of the cruise. It was made at Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas - a private island owned by Holland American Lines.

Turks and Caicos

Today as a part of our Fall Caribbean cruise we are in Great Turk in the
Turks and Caicos Islands. Actually we are not in Grand Turk but rather
we are anchored off the port. The winds are such that the ship is not
able to tie up at the pier and it is a question of whether or not we
will be able to go ashore at all here. Although it is windy, the
weather is very nice (in the 80s) and the sun is shining brightly.

Yesterday was a day at sea with reading, gambling and Bingo. The Bingo
session in the afternoon was very crowded which is good because the more
people there are, the bigger the prizes. We won the third game where the
prize was $330 but we had to split it with two other persons. Still it
was pretty good.

Yesterday was our 26th wedding anniversary but we are celebrating it
today with dinner this evening in the Pinnacle Grill.

That's it for now.

Off to Sea

This morning we are off to sea for a week. Although we had already booked a thirty-three day cruise for next Spring, that was too far away so we booked a week's cruise starting today. This will be the fifth or sixth vacation or cruise to celebrate Thanksgiving and our wedding anniversary (tomorrow is the 26th).  

We will be stopping in Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Thomas and Half Moon Cay - a private island owned by Carnival Cruise Corp. and used by Holland American Cruise Line.  Weather this week in that area of the Caribbean does not look good with scattered showers for most days. We shall see.
