Got a good reason For taking the easy way out


...And When I Reached Jamaica, I Made a Stop!!!

Finally, our destination...the island of Jamaica!!


...The hilly terrain of the island from the ship as we made our way in to dock...


The dock's courtyard, and Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville


The shopping, the scenes, the ship & a view of our cabin through the palms, the excursion to the sugar cane plantation, the slaves' birthing house (he had 1200 slaves), a Jamaican orange [I believe it was called ugly orange (ugli fruit)...not sure]


The plantation (1700s), the river that runs through the land...


The main house, thatch roof...where we had lunch, the landscaping, rafters.


...the kitchen, the counting house [two views], and back aboard...leaving Jamaica behind!!


This concludes my cruise record of photos.  From Galveston to Jamaica, West Indies.  Now, soon, back to 'normal blogging'.

America lost a first lady April 17, 2018

“...you are a human being first and those human connections — with spouses, with children, with friends — are the most important investments you will ever make.”

And who knows? Somewhere out in this audience may even be someone who will one day follow in my footsteps, and preside over the White House as the president’s spouse …

… and I wish him well."

~ Barbara Bush 1990
