Emerald Princess, day 10, Fort lauderdale

Home again. We had a great time but are glad to be back. Now all that is left is to disembark, get through customs and get to the airport. Looking forward to seeing Mo!

Emerald Princess, day 7, Bonaire

Hello from Bonaire! As you can see, the weather is overcast. What you cannot see is how humid it is! We had a good time wandering around the little shops. The island is Dutch and you can see that in some of the crafts. Oddly enough they converted to the US dollar in January.

Our health continues to be good other than the increasingly rosiness of my face!

Tomorrow is Aruba! Then two sea days and back to reality.

Emerald Princess day 5, Dominica

What a great day we had today! The rainforest tram was so amazing, really a great way to see the forest. We are impressed too with the open friendliness of the people. Tomorrow we are heading for Grenada. Nothing special planned, but we have had fun so far just by walking around.

Emerald Princess day 4, St. Thomas

We arrived early this morning, with a brisk breeze in our faces. Amazing to see how this big ship tucked itself right into the pier. Walked around town a bit - saw the old Danish fort, stopped in to see the Governor but unfortunately he was not available.

This afternoon we leave for Rouseau, Dominica. There we are taking a rain forest canopy tour in a kind of gondola you would normally see in a ski resort. The tour notes say that insect repellant is ESSENTIAL!

There are several Italians on board including the head waiter in the main dining room. He called the room yesterday to inquire after us since we had not showed up yet for any if the meals. We are supposed to go meet him tonight.

Hopefully I can post again tomorrow.

Peach blossoms!

The first peach blossoms opened on my little Bonanza dwarf peach tree today.  This will be it's third year and I'm really looking forward to the fruit. It was very tasty last year!
The garden is really starting to green up and grow.  By the time we come back from vacation things will be in full swing.
