Home Again...

We had a fantastic trip to the Carribean!
Our days flew by with so much to do, and I had to set our alarm
most mornings! We took in a couple planned excursions on the cruise
and had a few play by ear days as well! This picture of Tayor was taken at a private beach we went to after whale watching on our Samana,Dominican Republic stop.
Taylor loved this little critter, and although there was a cost to take pictures with him it was well worth it!

This sunset was taken as we were leaving St. Thomas. This is such a pretty port with lots to do and great duty free shopping to boot! I had my hands on a new camera lens twice but showed some restraint and left with T-shirts for Taylor and Bill and some yummy Banana Daiquiri mix for me! A couple of flavoured rums made it into our hands as well!

This was one of the beautiful mountain top views from St. Thomas. I could have spent hours looking out to the ocean from this spot...the color of the water is incredible! The fact that we we're sipping the "World's Best Banana Daiquiri" certainly didn't hurt!
This is just a teasing of the many pictures I took. I will share more as I have a chance to go through them.
It was so hard coming back to -18C weather, but was pleased to hear we missed the really cold stuff while we were away. Our wonderful neighbours shoveled our driveway so we only had to run into the house to warm up. It's amazing how easy it is to adjust to sunshine, sand and beaches...wish I could say i loved snow even a fraction as much!
The scrapbooking and photography component to my fun in the cruise was great! We had some awesome Canadian talent teaching new techniques and I met some great new friends! I look forward to staying in touch with many of those I met!
Will upload more pictures soon...hugz to all!
