Aruba 

We had been to Aruba before, so decided to make it one last beach day. We walked to beach, and found a nice place to sit and have our picnic lunch.  

  
 

loved this boat with the pelican on top.

After swimming for awhile we started to walk back toward the ship 

like the saying on this sign

We walked by this sign  couldn’t resist taking a picture.  
 

We found some internet and catch up on emails, before heading back to the ship. 

On the way back to the ship, Tim and I bought new hats. What do you think? 

  

  
We have 2 days at sea then back to Ft Lauderdale…..

Grenada 

Grenada is a beautiful island. We were there on a Sunday so wasn’t much open. 
These guys were playing the steel drums as we walked on to the island.

We walked through this tunnel and checked the town out.

Found a beautiful harbor. 

   
   
Decided that not much was open so we found a water taxi to take us to a beach.

The water taxi guy was very nice. He was willing to take us back to the ship to grab something we forgot. We decided we didn’t need it so just headed to the beach. It was a very beautiful beach.

We got chairs in the shade.

Tim and Ron went swimming and found a lot of starfish. They were really big and heavy. 

   

  

  

   

  

After awhile there it was time to head back to the ship. The water taxi guy was waiting for us.

Time to board the ship. 
Next stop Bonaire……..

Dominica 

Our next port was the island of Dominica. We had been here before so after some research Tim found one of the best sight was a hot springs by the beach called Bubble Beach.
We hired a cab who really didn’t want to go there and tried to discourage us by saying we wouldn’t really like it. We soon discovered why he tried to discourage us, the hills were very steep and the cab had a hard time making some of them.

The beach was awesome. The hot springs were right at the edge of the water. They stacked up rocks right off the shore to help keep the hot water in. Bubble Beach was a quite beach with just us and a couple of locals. There was a “bar” changing room and a “spa”.

There was a church they were working on.  

From Bubble Beach we went went a little farther to Scotts Head. This was at the end of the peninsula. 

  
There was a hill with an old fort on top. We had our picnic lunch then payed a $2 “entrance fee”, since it was a persevere and went swimming at a really nice beach. Tim and Ron rented snorkels. They saw lots of fish and a sea turtle. 

  


   
Where we were was neat in that you had the Caribbean ocean on one side and the Atlantic on the other. 

 

On left is the cribbean , the right alantic

 
Time to go back to the ship and try to make hills again. Got back no problem. 

That night on board we had a great tribute band playing in the atrium. Had a great time dancing to Beatles songs. The bands name was Beatlemaniacs. We had heard them before on another cruise and they are really good.

   
 
Next stop Grenada ………
