Last pics and last day to enter!
Saturday, January 29th, 2011

Today’s the last day of the contest to win the eGift Certificate. You have to post a comment to win!

I was surprised. I didn’t take all that many pictures this trip. Maybe it was because of the weather. Or maybe it was because I’m a little jaded. My cruise last year with Sasha was sooooo much fun and the weather was completely awesome. I will admit that cruise travel isn’t really my cup of tea. I much prefer flying to one place and taking trains/renting a car to see the surrounding area. Port calls just don’t leave you time to explore.

These are the last pics I’ll share. Tomorrow I’ll be back with a winner and news about a new book.

Believe it or not, this cruise was work-related. Here’s proof (just in case Mr. Taxman is reading!). From left to right is Erika from Avon, Eric from Tor, and Wanda and Adam from Harlequin.

My favorite view. Really. The ninth deck at the back of the boat wasn’t a hopping place, which was what I often needed. I liked standing there and just breathing the sea air and forgetting that there were 2500 other people crawling over the same boat. I’m such an introvert!

After debarking, this was the sight as our shuttle bus pulled up to the airport. There were easily a dozen police cars covering the entrance. But the cops were only standing around. No guns were drawn. Not sure what was up, but it was an interesting end to the journey.

So today, you get to make up a reason for why all those cop cars
were covering the entrance to airport!

    Hey Delilah!

    How does it feel to be back home after a few days? I leave monday to head back to the days.

    I know you have only been home a short time, but have you managed to do any research for your Medieval fantasy?

    Hi DD,

    I always enjoy your narrations of your trips once you are back home. Its almost like I was there. In fact. I think that it is better since you are a master of the written word.

    I hope it was relaxing and fun. Welcome home

    The officers heard there was a boat load of authors. There was word out that a few of these authors wrote stories with some naughty parts and they just had to meet them. They are hoping to star in one of these books, so they were oiled up and shirtless?

    LOL! I like Lisa’s reason!! So, did you get to meet any hunky cops? ;)

    Hmm… maybe they’d gotten a hot tip that some pirate-clad thieves had absconded with fancy folded towels and wanted to try to head them off at the airport with their fancy sting operation–Net a Nubby ‘Nimal…

    Lovely pics. As forthe cop cars – they obviously heard you were going to be there and were worried all your fans would cause a riot :D

    Enjoyed your cruise pics. I’ve been to Key West and Cozumel on a similar cruise and recognized that shopping plaza in Coz! I bought the most beautiful seashell earrings there.

    Welcome home! Can’t wait to hear about your new book.

    Best-Adele

    I think the cops heard the coffee shop in the airport was giving away free donuts.

    I enjoyed the pics of your cruise.

    LOL – I love everyone else’s comments about why the police were there!! I really have no idea why, and no immagination – which is why I read a lot instead of writing! :)

    Sounds like a great trip – thanks for sharing with us!

    Maybe they followed a bunch of speeding fans there. The fans were hurrying to get a autograph.

    They couldn’t find any parking at the local donut shop so decided to try the airport snack bar.

    I think the cops got a tip that the author who writes the steamy, sexy, hot erotic romance books that their wives/girlfriends read and that they benefit from was going to be catching a flight after a cruise. They wanted to stop by and say thanks!! :wink:

    Wahahaha! See how this brainstorming thing works? You all fed each other’s creativity. And some of these suggestions are really fun. I like believing they were waiting for the Devlin to show up, but pictured a gorgeous, younger version of me and never saw me slip inside. :mrgreen:
