Now we are back in Miami. Our cruise is over and we are heading back to Grenada. We had a fantastic lunch with Daniel before going to Miami International Airport for our direct flight back to Grenada. Then April and Dwaine will pick us up when we arrive. It has been a fantastic trip.

Bam. Silhouette. I love my new camera. We had our second and final fun day at sea today. We lost $14 in the casino and $20 in bingo but we had lots of fun trying the penny slot machines for the first time. Dinner tonight was delicious. They made a special indian dinner for us because we are vegetarian and the main dinner was lobster and steak. We had a fabulous day relishing in each others attention, reading our Kindles and soaking up the sun. Its weird to think that I haven't had a cell phone or computer for a whole week but I kind of like being secluded for a while.

Today was our forth and final stop on the cruise. We spent the day laying on the beach in Cozumel, Mexico. This is one of my favorite pics from the day. I continue to experiment with depth of field, aperture, shutter speed and the various tricks of photography I'm learning in Understanding Exposure. Also, I was handed a free raffle ticket while sitting on the beach and ended up winning a free pair of earrings that I love! We are having a blast!

We stopped in Belize today, or as some people know it, British Honduras. We toured the city of Belize City and went out to Altun-Ha to see the Mayan ruins there. It was un-belize-able, as they like to say. The ruins were so tall and we got to climb to the top and see the whole plaza. My camera battery died on our way so this is the only picture I have for now until we can get the pictures off of the point and shoot camera we borrowed from Allie. It was a great day though, we also picked up some souvenirs for our family and friends.

We arrived in Roatan this morning. For those of you who haven't heard of it, its a small island off the cost of Honduras, and its gorgeous! We went zip lining! Palak is afraid of heights so this was quite the accomplishment to convince him to go. We went through 1100 feet of lines suspended more than 40 feet in the air. It was so much fun. Then as if the day could get any better, we got to go through Gumbalina Park and play with Capuchin monkeys! There were about 7 monkeys in the park that were friendly enough to handle. They climbed up on our shoulders and we could pet them all we wanted. It was so cool.

Our first stop is at Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands. The water is blue and the sand is hot. We spent the day laying in the sun, frolicking in the clear blue sea and reading our Kindles. It was a very relaxing day.

Today is our first fun day at sea. We slept in in the morning, had a marvelous breakfast. Ate in the buffet for lunch and enjoyed a wonderful dinner in the dining room. We saw the show the performers were putting on and it was really entertaining. They sang songs from all the decades and hit every note. We are looking forward to seeing the Cayman Islands tomorrow!
