As promised, a few fun snaps from our recent (7 night Royal Caribbean!) cruise to Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica. Each shot has a fun little story to it.
We were warned by a seasoned caribbean cruiser prior to our stop in Grand Cayman that we’d see chickens EVERYWHERE… and to be sure to get an ironic shot of one in front of the KFC. Too funny. They WERE in the most random places.
We were also warned about iguanas, that we’d see them everywhere. We did see one in Grand Cayman (a BIG one!), but this one was seen in Cozumel as we walked along the ocean. I just love the blue water in the background to contrast the bright green. You have to look for a second to see the iguana as it blends in to the rock.
And this is where we DIDN’T stay while we were in Jamaica! We took a four hour tour around the island and the Ritz Carlton hotel was one of our many stops. We were told the rooms are/can be $1500 a night! We got to walk around the grounds and pretend for about 15 minutes that we were one of “them”… then we got back in our tour bus and moved on:)
And this is a self-portrait of me and my hubby in Cozumel. We broke our bank to just GO on the cruise, so at each port, we didn’t really do anything (like $$$ excursions) except walk to the main shopping area, enjoying the scenery as we went (taking lots of pictures!). We were told the walk to the shopping area at Cozumel was about 3 miles. I’m not so sure about that, but I do know I got more exercise than I’ve had in a LONG time (which of course justified all the eating I was doing). We had decided we’d drop the money to take a taxi back. We ended up splurging on a carriage ride. We have always wanted to take one around downtown Fort Worth, but never have quite made it happen, so we got to enjoy our first (and probably last) carriage ride in Cozumel. Boy was it bumpy. Baby wasn’t liking me too much during the ride!
