2: Leah got a little car sickie on the way to the port...she was a bit green, like Elphaba.
3: Time to Cruise
5: It's going to be a good trip...
9: the clock of the time dragon...
19: And let's not forget the 70's dance party right outside our window at midnight... complete with Austin Powers, the epileptic, and the burkha lady...hilarious!
37: Day 8
41: We were "warned" about the "clothing optional" beaches in St. Maarten, but it wasn't too bad...only a couple of topless girls who really shouldn't have been.
43: Can you believe we got Nanny to parasail!?! St.Thomas Cruise Day 5
44: Parasailing | St. Thomas
46: Grandmom got seasick on the way back from parasailing, so she went back to the ship with Nanny to rest. Leah and I found a taxi to take us to the beach. We soon found out that New York taxi drivers are calm compared to these crazy island drivers. He took us way up and over the mountain to get to the other side of the island...it was a truly beautiful view... and the beach was incredible... it's a heart shaped bay with calm clear waters...amazing... P.S. Mom felt much better when we got back, so we spent some time in the casino...mom always wins... Nanny and I played lots of $5 "Let in Ride"...we won some...but lost more...lots of fun...
48: Beautiful Magen's Bay | St. Thomas
50: WILD | S
52: Puerto Rico | Nanny and Bon decided to just do a little souvenir shopping here. Leah and I went on a rather strenuous hike into the rain forest...then we ziplined all the way down from tree to tree...it was a great experience.
53: We wished we had had more time to take a look at some of the old castles on the island. | There's not a whole lot to see in Puerto Rico. Most of the island is pretty run down and dirty. The tourist side beaches are pretty, and the rainforests nice to see. | The Coast Guard here is NOT playing around. Notice the 3/300hp motors and the machine gun mounted on the front. | Day 10
55: Ziplining the Canopy I tried to take a few pics while zipping... clearly not successful :) Then I tried to video... but I had to hold on...
61: Afterwards, we ordered french fries and cookies from midnight room service and sat giggling on the bed playing cards til late...we can sleep in tomorrow...
62: Leah, smile for the cute Ukranian photographer, Pavlo
63: June 2011 | Leah, "don't order that dessert, it's not good...pick another one"
