Back to Reality

My wife and I had a fabulous time cruising the Caribbean last week (we are SO THANKFUL to our friend, Brenda, who made this possible - thanks a million, Brenda, we love ya!).  The ship was awesome, the weather was beautiful, and the islands were gorgeous.  We were literally shut-off from the world for a whole week, and I gotta tell ya, it was kind of nice.  No cell or internet service all week (actually, both were available, but far too expensive to set up).  Princess Cruise Line's motto is Escape Completely, and that's just what we did.  It was wonderful. 

At the same time, it's really nice to be back home, even though that means I have a lot of catching up to do. :) 

Here are some pics from our little getaway:

Filet medallions and fettucine alfredo - delicious!

Cozumel, Mexico (Puerto Maya)

Enjoying an authentic Mexican lunch in Cozumel (with Sol beer - so good!)

I thought the Mayans were extinct!

The first of many a few pina coladas! :)

Looks like you had a great time and I'm happy you are back. :)

P.S. I LOVE your hat!

I bought that hat in Cozumel to keep the sun from scorching my bald head anymore than it already had - it worked! :)

There is this thing called "sun screen." You should try it. :)

Rev. Thomas C. Messer, SSP said...

Yeah, I drenched my head in sun screen the first couple of days on the cruise - still got burnt - hat worked a lot better . . . but thanks for the tip. :)

You kinda look like a regular guy in those pictures with your street clothes and fancy hat. Glad you and Lisa had a great time, but I'm glad you're back. It wasn't a 'normal' week without all my church things to do.
