Cruising

1 Jan

We’re back from our little hiatus away from Bushranger.  Carnival Cruises took us from New Orleans and delivered us to Jamaica then the Cayman Islands then Cozumel then back to New Orleans for a Christmas cruise.

It’s good to take a break from the norm and do something different, don’t ya’ reckon?…of course, I guess taking a break from a cruise (on Bushranger) by going on a cruise (on Carnival) probably doesn’t sound that different does it? Well, let me tell you, it was very nice having someone else drive the boat/cook the meals/clean up our messes/entertain us/etc. so, yeah, it was a VERY different way to spend our week!

This is what we saw from our balcony every evening…

    Happy New Year you guys. Went to check on Martha VI and your slip was so lonely!! I love the picture of Bushranger in the mist. Where are you moored?

      Hi Martha. Happy New Year! I hope you guys are well and happy. We DO miss our friends at Aqua…and that photo of Bushranger is one I’ve had sitting in the file for quite a while — I think I took it at Nickajack last year…notice it was taken before we put the Strataglass on her…

        Thinking about taking an extended trip down Tenn-Tom into our favorite places along Panhandle in the Spring. Will take some planning but possible. You’ve inspired us!
