Still talking about our cruise. The destinations did not matter to us. And they really weren’t that great, but who cared. We were there for the civilian ship experience. Not meaning to sound too much like a: been-there-done-that , type of person, it is hard to be impressed by a tourist trap, when you lived in the Caribbean for three and a half years. We also lived in Key West for three more years. We just enjoyed a stateroom and never got to eat that much good, beautiful food, HA!
Something I really do not enjoy, is walking in the poverty areas. Knowing that the worst of us in the USA, are wealthy compared to some of these folks. I have learned I cannot fix it, it is too big. I can hand out to every little dirty hand held out, until I am broke, and they will be in the same position tomorrow. I won’t be there and beside I would be broke. So, we give to church missions, hoping that someone will be helped. So I would rather stay aboard ship. Do you think that is like buring your head in the sand?Is that mean? Like most folks, I have given at every port I have ever pulled liberty in. You cannot help it. We are so blessed here in The USA.
Now back to the ship. We were happy to walk the weather decks. WE enjoyed stopping by the theater to catch a movie when a stage show was not in progress. I enjoyed watching the young folk dance on stage, and just knowing I could bend my body like that, if only I were just fifty three years younger. LOL.
I quit. Thanks for coming this way.
