Heading for Florida

Day 13. All ports seen. The old city of Cartagena, Colombia was by far the most delightful excursion of the trip. Narrow cobblestone streets, colorful Spanish style houses, balconies with bouganvillia, intricately carved wooden doors. A really sweet energy about the people. Also hoping to sell their wares but not with so much aggression as in Mexico.

Yesterday, the banana bus picked us up for a beach day in Aruba. A walk along the white sand beach, water lapping gently, windsurfers, wave riders, motor boats pulling inner tubes, 40,000 people. Aahhh!

Happy to spend today and tomorrow at sea heading for Ft. Lauderdale and the next cruise ship. The change of scenery will be welcomed. It will also be interesting to see if the cruisers on a week-long Caribbean cruise are of a different age. As delightful as this cruise has been, it has had the feel of a stay in a geriatric center.

Robert and I have been glad to have each other on this particular voyage. Day 13 and we're doing well together still.
