Cruise Ships Docked In Saint Lucia

Saint Lucia, an Eastern Caribbean island nation with a pair of dramatically tapered mountains.  The Pitons, on its west coast.

Its coast is home to volcanic beaches, reef-diving sites, luxury resorts and fishing villages. Trails in the interior rainforest lead to waterfalls like the 15m-high Toraille, which pours over a cliff into a garden. The capital, Castries, is a popular cruise port.

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.

Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.

What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.

Sea Monsters

Sea Monsters

Two sea monsters were swimming around in the ocean, looking for something to do. They came up underneath a ship that was hauling potatoes. Bob, the first sea monster, swam underneath the ship, tipped it over and ate everything on the ship.

A little while later, they came up to another ship, again hauling potatoes. Bob again capsizes the ship and eats everything onboard.

The third ship they found was also hauling potatoes and Bob once again capsized it and ate everything.

Finally his buddy Bill asked him, “Why do you keep tipping over those ships full of potatoes and eating everything on board?”

Bob replied, “I wish I hadn’t, but I just can’t help myself once I start. Everyone knows you can’t eat just one
potato ship.”

Life was a lot slower and simpler in the fifties and sixties.

Stranded on a Desert Island

Stranded on a Desert Island

One day a man decided to retire. He booked himself onto a Caribbeancruise and proceeded to have the time of his life — that is, until the
ship sank.

He soon found himself stranded on a tropical island with no supplies, just fresh water and fruit.

After several months, he is lying on the beach one day when a
gorgeous woman rows up to the shore. In disbelief, he asks, “Where did
you come from? How did you get here?”

She replies, “I rowed over from the other side of the island where I landed when my cruise ship sank.”

“Amazing,” he notes. “You were really lucky to have a row boat wash up with you.”

“Oh, this thing?” says the woman. “I made the boat out of some raw
material I found on the island. The oars were whittled from gum tree
branches. I wove the bottom from palm tree fronds, and the sides and
stern came from a Eucalyptus tree.”

“But, where did you get the tools?”

“Oh, that was no problem,” replied the woman. “On the south side of
the island, a very unusual stratum of alluvial rock is exposed. I found
that if I fired it to a certain temperature in my kiln, it melted into
ductile iron and I used that to make tools and used the tools to make
the hardware.”

The guy is stunned.

“Let’s row over to my place,” she says “and I’ll give you a tour.” So
she rowed him to the other side of the island, and docked the boat at a
small wharf. As the man looks to shore, his jaw drops. Before him is a
long stone walk leading to a cabin and tree house.

While the woman ties up the rowboat with an expertly woven hemp rope,
the man can only stare ahead, dumb struck. As they walk into the house,
she says casually, “It’s not much, but I call it home. Please sit down.
Would you like a drink?”

“No! No thank you,” the man blurts out, still dazed. “I can’t take another drop of coconut milk.”

“Oh it’s not coconut,” winks the woman. “I have a still. How would you like one of my Tropical Zombies?”

Trying to hide his continued amazement, the man accepts, and they sit
down on her couch to talk. After they exchange their individual
survival stories, the woman announces, “I’m going to slip into something
more comfortable. Would you like to take a shower and shave? There’s a
razor in the bathroom cabinet upstairs.”

No longer questioning anything, the man goes upstairs into the
bathroom. There, in the cabinet is a razor made from a piece of tortoise
bone. Two shells honed to a hollow ground edge are fastened on to its
end inside a swivel mechanism.

“This woman is amazing,” he muses. “What’s next?” He’s amazed that the shower features warm water, but he decides not to ask.

When he returns downstairs, she greets him wearing nothing but some
small flowers on tiny vines, each strategically positioned she smelled
faintly of gardenias. She then beckons for him to sit down next to her.

“Tell me,” she begins suggestively, slithering closer to him. “We’ve
both been out here for many months. You must have been lonely. When was
the last time you played around?”

He can’t believe what he’s hearing. “You mean…” he swallows excitedly as tears start to form in his eyes, “…You’ve built a golf course, too!?

Woman Overboard

Overboard

An elderly couple was on a cruise and it
was really stormy.
They were standing on the back of the boat watching the moon,
when a wave came up and washed the old woman overboard.

They searched for days and couldn’t find
her, so the captain
sent the old man back to shore with the promise that he would
notify him as soon as they found something.

Three weeks went by and finally the old
man got a fax from the
boat. It read: “Sir, sorry to inform you, we found your wife dead
at the bottom of the ocean. We hauled her up to the deck and
attached to her was an oyster and in it was a pearl worth
$50,000 .. . ..please advise”

The old man faxed back: “Send me the pearl
and re-bait the trap

Cindy Crawford and the Single Guy

Cindy Crawford and the Single Guy

A young single guy is on a cruise ship, having the time of his life. On the second day of the cruise, the ship slams into an iceberg and begins to sink. Passengers around him are screaming, flailing, and drowning but he manages to grab on to a piece of driftwood and, using every last ounce of strength, swims a few miles through the shark-infested sea to a remote island.

Sprawled on the shore nearly passed out from exhaustion, he turns his head and sees a woman lying near him, unconscious, barely breathing.She’s also managed to wash up on shore from the sinking ship.

He makes his way to her, and with some mouth-to-mouth assistance he manages to get her breathing again. She looks up at him, wide-eyed and grateful, and says, “My God, you saved my life!” He suddenly realizes the woman is Cindy Crawford!

Days and weeks go by. Cindy and the man are living on the island together. They’ve set up a hut, there’s fruit on the trees , and they’re in heaven. Cindy’s fallen madly in love with him, and they’re making passionate love morning, noon and night. One day she notices he’s looking kind of glum.

“What’s the matter, sweetheart?” she asks. “We have a wonderful life together. I’m in love with you. Is there something wrong? Is there anything I can do?”

He says, “Actually, Cindy, there is. Would you mind putting on my shirt?”

“Sure,” she says, “If it will help.”

He takes off his shirt and she puts it on. “Now would you put on my pants?” he asks.

“Sure, honey, if it’s really going to make you feel better,” she says.

“Okay, would you put on my hat now, and draw a little mustache on your face?” he asks.

“Whatever you want, sweetie,” she says, and does.

Then he says, “Now, would you start walking around the edge of the island?”

She starts walking around the perimeter of the island. He sets off in the other direction. They meet up half way around the island a few minutes later. He rushes up to her, grabs her by the shoulders, and says, “Dude! You’ll never believe who I’m sleeping with!”

Mariner of the Seas

Art Prints


Recently we and the pleasure of sailing on the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line’s The Mariner of the Seas, one of the finest cruise ships afloat, it is 105,000 tons of enjoyment, with its ice skating rink, rock climbing wall, and miniature golf course, there is always something to do.
 
Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas is unique in that instead of individual stores it has incorporated a shopping area in the center of the ship that resembles a city street. 
On each side of the promenade they have individual cabins that look like apartments looking down on the shopping area. 

It really is an interesting concept, however we were disappointed because there is very little drawer space in the cabin and we wound up living out of our suitcase all week, next time we are going back to a balcony cabin. 
 
The small quarters were soon forgotten because of the amazing Ports of Call!

Our Eastern Caribbean cruise included visits to Coco  Caye, St. Thomas, where we took in the sights at Megan’s Bay and Blackbeard’s Castle.

Then it was on to St. Martin and the beautiful sands of Orient Beach.
