My East Caribbean Cruise Trip

When my nephew asked me if we would like to go to East Caribbean Cruise with them, I hesitated. Although Wei and I like the convenience of having-our-hotel-room-follow-us-wherever-we-go, but we don’t watch a lot of cruise shows, we don’t gamble, and we definitely don’t like the possibility of gaining weight. However, I miss seeing my nephew’s family, so at the end I decided to go.

Other than the day getting on and off the ship, it was a 6-day trip: 3 days at the sea and one day each at Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Freeport. The beaches at the first two ports were beautiful: water was super clean in turquoise color, and white sands were unbelievably fine and smooth. Freeport was a disappointment. We heard there was a beach, but most people, including us, didn’t bother to find out where it was.

Freeport day was a shopping day. That was it. ;-).

I had a lot of fun. Endless entertainment from my grandniece and grandnephew, definitely, was the best part!

      Yes, I am so glad that I changed my mind. Nice to spend a lot of time with those two lovely kids, and still had some quiet time when I needed it. Ha.
      Have a wonderful evening.

      Thanks, Mabel. You are right — it can’t be better than that! Felt a little guilty though, because I do like to spoil kids, and I like to make a lot of noise (laughing) when playing with them. Ha.
      Have a great day.

      Thanks, Hien. We plan to bring our 500 mm lens to Blackwater national wildlife refuge at the end of July to take some photos. Last time we were there, we didn’t see too many birds or animals. I wonder if it is because we didn’t know where to look 😉 Hope we will have a better luck this time.
      Good night.
