Scuttle’s Cove has supervised children’s programs for kids 3-12, Serenity Bay is a private beach for those 18 and … Continue reading »

We flew into Orlando last night and stayed at the Days Inn Cocoa Beach near Port Canaveral. I always like to arrive at the pier the day prior to a cruise to make sure we arrive in time to board the ship. We dropped our rental car off at the port and were on board … Continue reading »

New Orleans, Louisiana February 1, 2017

I couldn’t leave New Orleans without walking through one of the city’s famous cemeteries. We took the trolley from the hotel through the Garden District to Lafayette Cemetery #1. It’s not very big – only about a square city block – but it has 1,100 tombs and over 7,000 souls. Double Jeopardy was filmed here, … Continue reading »

New Orleans, Louisiana January 30, 2017

Today we took the Hop-on/Hop-off Bus to the French Market, French Quarter, and St. Louis Cathedral. At first I thought that many businesses and homes still had their Christmas decorations. But I quickly learned that this is Carnival season, which spans several weeks and ends with Mardi Gras. There are purple, yellow, and green decorations … Continue reading »

Flores, Indonesia October 18, 2016

We flew from Bali to Labuan Bajo, Flores yesterday so we could take a full-day tour of Komodo National Park. I didn’t want to come all the way to Indonesia and not see Komodo dragons. The dragons are found in Komodo National Park which stretches across several Indonesian islands. The easiest way to see them … Continue reading »
