Jamaica Mi Crazy!!

I just got back from a cruise to the Western Caribbean. Words can't do the trip justice...it was amazing! I tried to get stuck in Jamaica so I didn't have to come back to 3 feet of snow in UT.

Here are some of the highlights of the trip.

Ft. Lauderdale:
We arrived at 5:30 am and couldn't board the ship until noon. We managed to keep ourselves (and probably a few others) entertained with a quick game of "Wack-a-mole".

Key West:
Our first port was Key West, Fl - it does not feel like part of the U.S. I loved the atmosphere, everyone was so laid back and easy going. I think I could live there. We rented an electric car and cruised around town. Here are a few of the sites.

Our Sweet Ride!

Way down south

It's warm!!
My future home.

This is right after we went scuba diving for the first time. I love Mexico because where else can you go scuba diving after a 20 minute lesson.

Prucilla made some new friends


Grand Cayman:
Sting Ray City was incredible! They say if you kiss a sting ray, it's seven years good luck, I passed.

Jamaica was a little sketchy, it was the only place I ever felt nervous. We were very lucky and found an awesome driver to take us around and be our "Baby-Sitter". Here's "Tony, No Problem"

This lady is selling us some Jamaican apples while smoking a joint.

The nude beach in Negril, I don't understand the appeal, it just looks like a bunch of nasty old men!

The Everglades:
This was one of my favorite places. We took and airboat ride into the everglades and had a close encounter with an alligator.

LOL @ your comment about trying to be stuck in Jamaica so you wouldn't have to go back to the cold. :-D
Right now I wish I could get stuck in somewhere cold so I wouldn't have to come back to this heat!!

The grass, they say, is always greener on the other side.

Looks like you had a blast! I love Key West. I wish I could move there tomorrow.
