Have you ever travelled with another couple and taken turns holding the camaera for photo ops?
We did that so often that now the pictures upon reviewing just make me smile.
Us. .and Ken and Mary ..
The morning that we sailed into St Lucia threatened rain to start the day.
We were one of the first cruise ships to come into port after Tomas the hurricane had cruised past.
We were told the island had been decimated and they were struggling to get running water back up and running.
The clouds began to gather overhead . .
. ..and when the rain started we stood at our railing watching the mud come into the bay from the hillsides.
It rained hard for an hour or so . .
and then stopped for our walk into town.
No matter what the skies looked like. .
the temperature was always warm and comfortable.
The ship started following us from port to port.
The day before they had been diverted from the islands they were planning to visit when an excursion touring the island was held up at gun point.
Tired of crusing yet?
Tomorrow ..we'll take a break.
all for now . .
