Hello, sunny St. Thomas! It is 81 and breezy here on our balcony. We are enjoying the water traffic as we finish our coffee.
Our travel companions were taking a ferry to the national park early, but we opted to have a lazy morning. We will go ashore shortly for a walkabout in this lovely port. We have been here many times, but still enjoy coming here.
Our stateroom here on Adventure of the Seas is much like all others. Our balcony is a bit different. The sides are solid metal for strength, and the part below the railing is solid metal as well, so there is only visibility above the railing. The enclosure also limits the breeze, but it is still nice out for us to enjoy the colorful scenery.
The promenade deck is truly lovely. I will take photos and post them, of course. There are a lot of open spaces on this ship, with loads of interesting decorations everywhere.
Incoming seaplane! MM is loving all this floating and flying traffic.
It is elegant night tonight. On super bowl Sunday. What were they thinking?!
We dropped our stuff off at the hotel and walked the few short down to the beach, and the gray clouds opened up, dashing our plans to find a local diner for local food.
The hotel restaurant was good but pricey, so our goal this morning was to find that local diner.
We ran upon this juice bar first, so here we sit waiting on an omelette and a stack of banana pancakes. MM is enjoying their free wifi...and ignoring the camera. This is quite an eclectic establishment.
Check out time is 11:00, so we will get a cab to the port and get onboard when able.
Now it is time to chow down on these:
Local coffee will sure get our day kick started!
Life is good...ciao, y'all! Adventure of the Seas is next.
Today, thirty-something years ago, MM rushed me to the hospital...and we got to take home this little cutie...in a much smaller form.
Happy, happy birthday to Amy!
Life has never been dull since that day when you arrived. You have made us laugh, love, cry, wonder...and a zillion other adjectives that are mostly good. Ha. Had to say that! We don't want to give you a "big head."
We love you to the moon and back, baby girl. Always know that.
Let the celebration continue. It's Birthday Season...own it!
Our baby girl is doing well after her hysterectomy last week, but it was still hard for this mom to leave her on Tuesday. She's in great hands, with family and friends all helping out with food and kids. It was great seeing everyone while I was home. Oh, I got to pick up Joy and take her home from the hospital. Yay...she is doing much better.
At least Amy was home when we got snowed in for a day. I arrived back in WPB in rain Tuesday night, and it hasn't quit. Bugger. It's still better than snow. Any day.
So we are gonna get out and go see a movie this afternoon. I am antsy to get out and walk after being holed up all day yesterday. It was definitely a Jammie day around here, but enough is enough!
