Adrift at Sea

No, this doesn't refer to the progress I'm making on a new project.

And actually, hopefully the adrift part isn't true, but the at sea part certainly is. Right now the hubby and I are cruisin' the Gulf of Mexico aboard Carnival Liberty on our way to Cozumel, Mexico. And after the long, long, long, long, (did I mention long?), long winter we've had in the Midwest, balmy breezes, sunshine, and sand are a welcome relief.

Cozumel will be the first stop of four we'll have on this trip. We'll also be visiting Belize City, Belize; Mahogany Bay, Honduras; and Georgetown, Grand Cayman.

Cozumel and Grand Cayman aren't new to us, we visited there sixteen years ago on our honeymoon, but we'll be enjoying different excursions this time around. We'll be learning about the history of Mexico in Cozumel and we'll be taking an island tour in Grand Cayman, which will showcase Pedro St. James, the city of Hell, and the world famous Seven Mile Beach. I plan on taking oodles of photographs anyway, but I especially want to snap some of particular places in Cozumel and Grand Cayman, as these are places Abby and Noah visit in Wild Wedding Weekend, and I want some photos for my web-site.

In Belize City we'll take a coach tour of the city and then head to Altun Ha, an ancient Mayan site. Mahogany Bay will allow us to experience a bit of the landscape, water, and native culture.

Hopefully all will go well (Last year one of our ports of call was canceled.) and we'll return home with lots of memories, stories, and pictures to share.

Until next time,

Happy Reading!
