Sailing the Western Caribbean on our recent vacation was loads of fun. We took a cruise ship out of Miami and saw Grand Cayman, Roatan, Belize, and Cozumel. Each stop offered different shore excursions so we did a number of different things.

My favorite excursion was riding a moped around Cozumel, Mexico. The cruise director discouraged renting a moped from the locals, but I found out that the cruise ship offered a motorcycle ride for $300. They said it wasn't safe to ride a $50 moped, but encouraged riding a $300 Harley rented from them. That didn't seem real fair to me so we rented the moped and had a blast. 

When I got home after riding that little moped, my Honda Goldwing seemed like a monster. The moped was a Honda too, but it was a baby Honda.  Ha! But it was fun nevertheless.

Another venture was a trip up a river in Belize to some Mayan ruins. It rained on us and we got soaked since the boat didn't have a top. They handed out rain coats that were so flimsy that they pulled apart in your hands. Getting soaked just cooled us down. 

Most of all we just relaxed and had a great time on the cruise ship enjoying evening shows and great meals. When we returned home, Wanda looked around for a steward to take care of our bedroom and a matride' to provide meals. 

Well, I guess that means the vacation is over and it's back to work for both of us. I did make up the bed to help Wanda and helped put all the clothes and suitcases up. We can't wait until the next cruise. Maybe we'll head to Alaska or the Mediterrainean. We' ll see.

Enjoy the pictures. The Western Caribbean is beautiful.
