So off we went to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on April 2nd. We were scheduled to embark on the MS Westerdam for a Caribbean cruise April 4th but first we spent two days exploring the Everglades and Big Cypress parks and Miami Beach before boarding our ship.
From quiet natural scenes...
...to the colorful neon and Latin culture of South Miami Beach.
And for a treat, breakfast at the Fontainbleau:
|Bob and Sharon on Half Moon Cay|
First port of call was Grand Turk Island at Turks and Caicos:
|Approaching Grand Turk island|
|Sharon at the Margaritaville pool on Grand Turk|
We concluded our voyage with a stop at Half Moon Cay (Little San Salvador Island) in the Bahamas.

I took pictures with an inexpensive new waterproof camera while I snorkeled:
|A Green Turtle|
|Sergeant Major fish|
Our last night on the ship, Bob and Sharon treated us to a great steak dinner at the Pinnacle Grill, a specialty restaurant on ship.
|Our host, Bob|
|Baked Alaska for dessert|
We arrived home to Albuquerque Saturday night, April 11th. Another great vacation!
