Great Trip!

Our ship was the Fascination!
 We got back from our cruise last week and boy was it fun. The weather was perfect. We cruised on a Carnival ship. We had no problems except that the drinking water on the Lido Deck  was not good. Ugh... but the trip was a blast.
  Big thanks to my brother , Hal, for taking us to the airport and picking us up, and to his wife, Charlotte, for welcoming us into their home overnight on both ends of the trip. We had a ball.
Russ and I

Rochelle and Mark

   We went with my sister, Rochelle, and her husband, Mark. This was my first cruise. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was ready to have fun in the sun. The sailing was smooth except for the last day going home. There were some swells, but not real bad. I had no problem once I took a short nap. Other people I think were getting a little sea sick, but we all were like fish to water.
Our excursion on a Catamaran.
We chose a catamaran excursion at Nassau, Bahamas  We went out for the sail while others went snorkeling. The trip was gorgeous. We enjoyed the views of islands and the smell of the salt air. Wicked fun.
Great Food
  The food was delicious. We ate like we weren't on a diet; and we weren't. We ate at the Lido Deck for breakfast and lunch and then headed to the dining room for the evening meal. All the food was yummy.
   Well, we are back home now doing yard work and planning our vegetable garden. It's warming up nicely here . They say we will be in the 70's by Friday. Hope so...
   I am working on finishing up my Disney Album and putting  pictures in our cruise album.  I'll post those next time.
   My next huge project it working on my son's and future daughter-in-law's wedding invitations. That is a project I can't wait to start. They will be married in June 2014. So I have plenty of time to work on them. 
   I'll post a few more pics of our trip. Have a lovely Spring.

Not sure if that is Mark or Russ coming down the slide.
