More Pictures from the Caribbean


Here are a few more random pictures from our trip ...

A view of our ship, the Caribbean Princess, from the tender ...


This is my favorite onboard photo, taken from the highest point on the ship I could reach ... it's nice to be able to get so much color into a single frame ...


Not everyone is welcome on board ...


The weather was such that there were lots of very beautiful cloud formations. Here's the sunrise behind the clouds as we approached Grand Cayman ...


Agnes was impressed to find a little bit of home in the Caribbean ... an Oktoberfest celebration (which, sadly, we missed) in Grand Cayman ...


Everyone said we absolutely shouldn't miss the fabulous Stingray Fountain in Grand Cayman. It was nice, but somehow I don't think it lived up to the hype ...


Yesterday I showed you several pictures of the pyramid ruins in Chocchoban. In addition to the pyramids, dotted throughout the jungle were a great many other ruins of what the guide told us were assumed to be residential, religious, and administrative structures, like this one ...


Nature takes some amazing forms in the jungle ...


Everything is riotously colorful in the Caribbean ... this is a shot of the water slide at one of the pools in the Playa Mia resort in Cozumel ...


One of the last pictures I took on the trip ... a beautiful sunrise as we sailed up the channel to Houston and the end of the cruise ...


So much for the pictures. Tomorrow I'll share a little commentary on the trip. Be sure to come back then.

Have a good day.

Great photos! I love that tree too. I think it is a banyan.

The stingray fountain needs a model of Steve Irwin laying in the water.
