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.

St Kitts

We enjoyed our time off the ship at St. Kitts.
We took a break from the adventure days off the ship and had a nice leisurely tour in a small bus around the island with a fun knowledgeable tour guide.
One stop we made was at the botanical gardens.
Here's Ken standing in front of some huge poinsettias.
I'll post more pictures on my picture blog when I get back.
We also made a stop at Brimstone Hill Fortress. Our driver had to drive through some very narrow entry ways to get to the fort. We were within inches of the walls when we drove through. He sure knew his car well!!
We had to walk up lots of stairs to get to this part.A view from the fort.
Our next and last island visit was at St. Maartins which is splint in two with one side French and the other Dutch.
It was a bit of an adventure getting off and back on the ship again here and I'll post about that next time. The ship is a rocking and a rolling again as I write this.

We have started on the way back to Baltimore and only have three more days at sea. I really like visiting all the islands but look forward to getting back home.

Hope your days have been good ones.
Happyone :-)

  1. Looks like you had another fun-filled tourist-y day. I would enjoy walking around and touring that fort. Enjoy the sun and warmth while you can. =)

    Happy New Year! I bet there will be lots of celebrating on board the ship.

  4. So glad that you've been having a good time. Of course, it's always nice to get home after a vacation. I didn't know that poinsettias grew that way in their natural environments...Ken's looking good!

    Take care and looking forward to your arrival home. Happy New Year!

  6. Glad you are having fun but there is no place like home. Might be a bit more chilly back home though. Just a bit...
