Wow - September 1, it's a gorgeous day, and I'm reminiscing. A long time ago, or, rather, a long, long, long time ago, when I was 15 or 16, I went on a Caribbean cruise with my parents. Oh boy, I remember the precise moment the ship left port for the first time. We were having late night snacks at the buffet, the ship barely started moving and I headed back to the cabin 'sea sick'. Thankfully it didn't last and I got my sea legs quickly. Yay!
The picture below was taken by my mom, and that's my dad and I on the deck. Check out the wide legged jeans I'm wearing - eek! Anyway, in the background is Columbia. We didn't leave the ship that day as we could hear gunfire, and that's not my 'cup of tea'.
It was a great trip and such a wonderful experience. We had taken trips to the islands before, but this was the first cruise.
Thank you for stopping by and taking a wee trip back in time with me.
