Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

The fun continues

Earlier in the morning of the same day we were under water on those water bikes we took a ride on a cable car up a mountain. I won this little outing the day before on a raffle. It was only for one so Ken bought a ticket so he could go with me.
St Thomas from top of the cable car ride.

A few pictures from the Coast of St Croix bike tour.
Ken and his bike.The color of the water is a turquoise and so pretty. The ride was pretty level but there were a few hills where I had to use the first gear. Ken's first gear didn't work so he had to work a bit harder. :-)

The shows here on the ship have all been fantastic. I was surprised because reading about taking cruises before we got here it said that the entertainment is just soso. We've seen lots of singing and dancing and there was even a juggler who was terrific and funny too. I think that's been my favorite show so far.

Sunday we came into the port at St. John and the outing for today was called the canopy challenge and it was exactly that!! We went zipping across valleys 12 different times on zip lines. Very fun and that part was easy. We crossed rope bridges, swinging rope bridges with no sides where you just got to hold on to ropes swinging from above. One of the bridges was pretty hard for me and if it wasn't for Ken helping me I don't think I would have been able to do it. It was fun though and I felt good that I was able to finish the course. No cameras were allowed! :-(

That's it for this post. More about St. Johns next time.
Happyone :-)


  1. Great views from the cable car and the bike ride. Really like that second to last shot, overlooking the cliff.

  2. Merry Christmas! Wow, you're on a cruise! Enjoy and we'll talk when you return. Love, KP

  3. I am following along on your cruise!

  4. So glad that you two are having so much fun. You are both such active people that I'm glad that you've been given lots of opportunities for adventure.

  5. I have a photo taken from almost the same spot on St. Thomas. We didn't get to St. Croix, but I would have loved the bike ride. I don't know how I feel about trying the rope bridges.


Hello my friend.
