Caribbean Cruise

We enjoyed a wonderful break in October - our first ever cruise! Our destination was the Western Caribbean - Grand Cayman (Cayman Islands), Roatan (Honduras), Belize and Cozumel (Mexico). The weather was great, and the company was better since we had a small group from our home congregation who went.

The Turtle Farm at Cayman had turles of all sizes from BIG

to little.

The little version is MUCH cuter!

Some Roatan dancers re-enacting how they beat the French army many years ago - the warriors traded clothing with their women to fool the soldiers.
