Wow...was so glad to return home, but sure wish I had a view of the Caribbean Sea from my house here in Bossier City! We had a wonderful time on the cruise to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Kilgore Rangerettes. 7 days is a long time to be cooped up with not much to do until we reached port..Cozumel the first day was great, the kids went scuba diving....2nd day (my favorite) we sailed on a catermeran to Stingray City to get in the ocean and swim with the stingray. Unreal how tame they are, we fed them and boy you better check for fingers afterward, they have the sucking power of a high powered vac! 3rd excursion was to Jamaica, had a nice stroll down the river in a kayak on the Great River! Fun to watch Amelia and Austin struggle to work together paddling instead of fighting each other. Austin ended up being the leader and told Amelia to just enjoy the view!!!
The trip back to Galveston was boring...sun hid for the rest of the trip and when we arrived at the port....freezing weather and snow awaited us for the trip home!
After 10 loads of laundry and a long nap in my own bed I am good as new! Think I might look into moving to the Cayman Islands when we retire...anything is possible in your dreams!
One week and the family leaves for a cruise on the Voyager of the Sea! The Kilgore Rangerettes will be celebrating their 70th Anniversary and will perform on the cruise! We will be going to Cozumel...Grand Cayman...and Jamaica! Should be a wonderful time for the family to spend together along with all the Rettes and their families! Hopefully all will be well and we will return safely with lots of precious memories to hold on to! Thank goodness for my sister, Sheri...she will be staying with my gang of animals at home...dogs..Sadie, Audrey, Lily...rabbit..Taffy..and Charlie the bearded dragon! I think she will need a vacation after the week! I will owe her big time!
