Cruise Pictures and a Contest!
Thursday, January 27th, 2011

***Contest! Post a comment on my blog and you’re entered. Contest ends Sunday, so post every day for more chances to win! The Prize? A $25.00 gift certificate from!**

Here are a few pics from the first 24-hours of my cruise to Key West and Cozumel!

Miami from the sea!

Taken from the dock at Key West on Friday morning!

Cyndi is the one who dragged me on the cruise. She sent an email and begged me to come. She really had to twist my arm hard! First thing we did on Key West was rent a little electric car. So worth it!

Key West is packed with cute little shops, overaged hippies and really cute houses!

This is the one I want!

Pretty little cottages all in a row.

Do you get the feeling the Westies know how to enjoy life?

Pirate sighting!

Cyndi and I sped around the island in our little car (okay, the fastest we could go was 20 mph) and took in the sights. Some. Mostly, we shopped! We picked up art work. I bought a pendant made from the silver from the sunken Spanish galleon, the Atocha. At the end of the day, we were ready to head back to the ship for a rest.

I keep wondering what Captain Booty’s story is. Maybe y’all can help me make one up. Why would a man dress in a red-sequined pirate outfit with a stuffed rooster on his head?

    Seriously, why would a man dress in a red sequin pirate outfit with a rooster on his head?

    The pictures look great.

    Judie! You hit the nail on the head. It’s time to quit playing and write!

    Lisa! I don’t know. My mind is imagining a rogue cop on a stake out.

    Janette! Thanks for letting me know. I hadn’t checked today! Glad True is staying “sticky”.

    I’m jealous, really – looking out the window I only see grey sky and the weatherforecast is cold – real cold (I’m in Germany). I could use a day of somewhere warmer.

    Captain Booty’s Story – maybe a lost bet?

    Money, that’s the only reason I can think of for pirate man. Sounds like you are having a great time.

    LOL! Those are fabulous photos, Delilah! Thanks for sharing a bit of your trip with us!

    As for that pirate… hmm… he’s blind. Someone stole his parrot, and didn’t tell him that the poor bird had been replaced with one that crows at dawn. And when he last sent his pirate outfit to be cleaned, the cleaners mixed up the tickets and he got Jethro, the pirate entertainer/singer/dancer’s outfit back instead. No one’s been bold enough to inform him yet…

    Glad ya’ll had such a good time. Loved the pictures, especially the one of Cyndi in the car, really tearing up the town huh 🙂

    The pirate is something else. Share pictures of your necklace, I bet it is cool.

    Lovely pics and it looks like you both had so much fun…… as for the peacock pirate? Maybe he just wanted to be the top cock of the walk!

    Crystal! Key West is a very fun place to visit. And lovely!

    Ute! Gray skies here too. Can’t wait for summer and my swimming pool! A lost bet for our pirate? I love that idea!

    Linda! We don’t want our guy too desperate. :mrgreen:

    Fedora! You have a mean streak! I never noticed that! LOL! But a very creative idea!

    Heather! I’ll share pics of the necklace—when I lose some pounds to pose! I ate my way through that cruise!

    Denise! Thanks, hon! I never tire of hearing that. Muah!

    Terri! Sadly it’s only memories now. Back to work for me!

    Hockeyvampiress! Now he needs a spunky heroine to point out how ridiculous he looks. 🙂

    Looks like you had a fun trip. Maybe he’s a little drunk or maybe a lot drunk. He probably just likes all of the attention.

    What can I say, looks like you had a great time on your cruise. Regarding the captain’s booty……..I think you can write a great story about a captain’s booty. ;P

    For the life of me, I couldn’t get on your website yesterday evening. I kept getting a weird error. Anyway, love the pictures. Especially you in the little car and the lovely cottages!

    Beautiful pics. You deserve a great vacation because of how hard you work to bring us such great reads. As for the Pirate, he’s probably one of the over aged hippies on a bad trip. lol

    Maybe he’s got a touch of senility and the rooster is a clue only he can understand?

    You know, I think the answer is either a very self confident man or a man who really needs a job. Either way, cool pics!

    Why would someone ware a pirate costume; my shrink uncle would say simply attention seekig behavior. I would say; becasue he is, in fact, a Pirate 🙂

    I wish I was a jeanie on your shoulder so I could have seen evereything. The pictures are great! You and Myla are still in the Top ten list in Samhain’s list. Woo hee! I’m going nuts and getting duplicates of bk again.
    See you online when you get back. Have a great time! Janette

    thanks for sharing all your pics from your vaction.looks like you had a fantastic time.
    As for the guy in the pirate outfit with a stuffed rooster on his shoulder..i have no clue,except he’s busking for money..and he must be desperate for it if he’s dressed up in that get up.
