Caribbean Cruise Continued

We had a fantastic time on the Maasdam, but the best part of the trip was being with my sweet mom and sisters.

Some might find the matching tee shirts a bit odd, but we had a great time picking them out in the ship's shops our first 3 days at sea.

Mom and Lynn opted for the blue.

The ship had a lot of interesting art displayed throughout the ship. Here's Lynn and Mom posing in front of an elaborate carving sitting in one of the passage ways. I'm not sure if Lynn was trying to dry out her ears after a couple of days at sea, or just doing her best to come up with an interesting pose. But either way, she was great fun to be with.

Another shot of us aboard the Maasdam. Our first three days were spent at sea, so there was plenty of time to explore the ship and snap pictures of every interesting place we discovered.

Jenny will be disappointed to learn that after her hours of tutoring me over Thanksgiving weekend, on the art of blogging and posting pictures, that it took me over an hour to figure out this post. I must have downloaded 10-15 pictures, only to have them disappear every time I tried to move things around like she showed me. Naturally, when she did it, everything worked perfectly. But when I would try to "click and drag" things would disappear or become distorted. I think I need a few more lessons! However, I will persevere and on the morrow, I promise to try again. If the Gods are with me, I will take you from the ship to some of the islands we toured.

Don't give up Mary, you're doing great!

Katie said...

I am so proud of you! You can't tell at all by the pictures that you were a bit motion sick.
P.S. The time it took to find the pictures...worth it.

Hey, I SWEAR I left a comment here! Blogger ate it! (that happens sometimes 4realz, just like disappearing pictures) Anyway, great job on this post! So I hope this means you'll be blogging regularly.
