Carribean Cruise pictures from last week

If you leave your chair for a half hour snorkel you may find your spot taken by some skinny-legged chick strutting down the beach!

My chair for the day. At our second port we went to beautiful Brewer's Beach on Tortola.There were about 2,000 passengers on our cruise ship and only about 10 people were on this incredible beach. We shared a taxi with one other couple and we were the only ones there for a couple hours and then a few people arrived later. No loud music, no spring break crowd, clean warm turquoise water to snorkel in, soft white sand and shady palm trees.Perfect.

Our first port in the southern Carribean was Samana - this is the colorful downtown shopping area which is one street. The ride in on boat tenders took longer than walking around the town.

These are the taxi's at Samana - scooters with attached seating. The port isn't visited by very many ships so it is still small and not very developed.
