Curacao. A must visit for anyone interested in period architecture and friendly people. We took a fabulous tour of this quaint island and its capital-Willemstad. We loved it and look forward to returning some day.
Aruba. Visited the capital-Oranjestad and then took an interesting tour of the whole island. It has rattlesnakes and boas. Went to the beach and spent the afternoon at Palm Beach. Would like to return there too.
Dinner that evening onboard at Le Cirque with friends we met (Dee and Don from Tucson). Great meal but too much goose pate!
St Thomas, US Virgin Islands. We stayed on board for a quiet day of swimming and reading. Roak went into a hot tub for the first time since his back injury.
Antigua. What a beautiful little place. Met some of the colourful locals and heard them speaking the native creole language-some French; some English; some Portuguese; some Dutch. Then, we went to the beach for a day of swimming and drinking rum punch-and it did have a punch.
Boarded the Ryndam and set sail for Key West.
Boarded a scenic trolley for a fun tour of the quaint town of KW. Very folksy place with lots of old buildings and restaurants. Saw the life size replica of the statue of Marilyn Monroe standing on the grate.
Explored the nature part surrounding the Grand Hyatt Tampa. Beautiful place. Saw iridescent small black lizards; egrets; tiny hermit crabs; nesting doves; and, sloughed snake skin (yikes). In the evening had dinner with Bart and Ronette at the Oystercatcher Restaurant. Very good food!
