Love Boat

How We're celebrating Valentine's Day This Year:

Last year we could not go out to dinner on Valentine's Day as we were under house arrest during what our region will forever remember as "The Valentine's Day Storm," where the snow accumulated over two feet in some areas.

This year we're going to avoid the snow all together. We are going on a four day cruise aboard the Majesty of the Seas, a recently remodeled cruise ship belonging to Royal Caribbean.

Our four day itinerary through the Bahamas begins in Miami on Monday. From Miami we go to Nassau, Coco/Little Stirrup Cay, Key West, then back to Miami on Friday. We have yet to plan our excursions at our stops, but we look forward to sight seeing and relaxing in a warmer climate, guaranteed blizzard free.

Our decision to go on Valentine's Day week actually had nothing to do with the occasion, it just happened to be the week that worked best with our work schedules, but is there any better way to spend the romantic holiday?!

It's too difficult to travel with my beading and jewelry making supplies, so intend to practice my knitting to keep my fingers busy while traveling and sitting in the sun.

Enjoy your holiday - you've certainly earned it!

Here's a twitku (tiny poem) for Valentine's Day. The picture was taken on our deck during that infamous storm.

Love to you both!

Very nice! Was the on called Pathways taken at Hovey Pond?

diane said...

Yes, took some gorgeous pictures there this summer.

And you should recognize the photo I used in the twitku for my "adopted" granddaughter (a student in Hawaii).

I'll expect some tiny poems from you after you return from your trip. This blog gives the background on the idea.

Right now, you're probably on your way to Nassau. I have a tinge of jealousy! LOL. I hope you have a great vacation--what a way to spend it, especially after last year's snow storm!
