I made it to Jamaica today and hopped on a shore excursion with about 20 others (not TOO many!). We went out on a Catamaran, and our first stop was to do some snorkeling – that was so-so. There was more coral & live fauna, but less in the way of fish (than we have in Hawaii). After snorkeling for about an hour, we then went on over to Dunn’s River Falls. I climbed the 600’ waterfall (it goes up in stages, so it wasn’t too hard). They had everyone make a human chain and that way we could help each other up the falls (as the water was coming down). It was refreshing & fun, but my knees are reminding me how old I am tonight. You only live once, right?
After coming back to the dock, I came on board, took a shower & changed into dry clothes and then went back out for some shopping. I bought a “Harley” shirt, a “Hard Rock Café” shirt & magnet, then I went to Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville and picked up a shirt there as well (I’ll need a new dresser for all my tee shirts!) *smiles*
I enjoyed dinner tonight with the same people I’ve been eating with. For an appetizer I had a scallops dish & then for dinner I had some garlic tiger shrimp. Both were delicious. Desert for me was a Raspberry Panna Cotta, which was just right.
After dinner I stopped by the Casino, I should have quit while I was ahead… but donated more money to the machines. I’ll give it a couple more nights & try again.
The show tonight is a “Broadway” show with the Royal Caribbean singers. I went for awhile, but I don’t want to stay up too late, so I came to my cabin to write up my blog so I could get it posted tonight at a reasonable time.
That’s about it for today. Tomorrow is another sea day (and another FORMAL night). I’ll enjoy another relaxing day. The weather today was fantastic, you couldn’t have asked for better. Hopefully the good weather will continue.
