Jim and I enjoy cruising for many reasons as you well know, if you are a regular reader. Of course, we like the food, the royal treatment and the relaxation. However, we enjoy the opportunity to learn new things each time we get off the ship and take a tour.

A group of us were sitting at the end of the pool enjoying the sunny weather and having a refreshing cool drink. Nancy’s husband came through the gate and everyone remarked that he looked like he was dressed for winter. Charlie had on a long sleeved shirt and long pants.

 When people attend the Altamont Fair for the first time, they may be overwhelmed by the large variety of exhibits at their disposal. The more they visit, the better acquainted they become with the people and exhibits that the fair has to offer.

We have just gone through a holiday that has many different meanings and brings to mind many different thoughts. Jim, my husband and I were reminiscing about past years at Christmas time and came up with a wide range of remembrances starting with junior high school and working up from there.

Last week I said that I would talk about some treasure hidden seven fathoms deep in the ocean. There are many documented shipwrecks around the Cayman Islands and stories about lost treasures are told to anyone who is willing to listen. 

Some are printed with maps that can help you find the treasures.

My husband, Jim, and I were enjoying a bowl of oatmeal before we started out to take a journey that was somewhat familiar yet totally new. We were waiting to hear our number called to board a tender for a journey full of sights and flavors of Grand Cayman. 

There was a time, not too long ago, when we could tell some of the days of the week just by walking down the street. Monday was washday and lines would be filled with the laundry, letting the sun and wind freshen and dry the clothes.  Sounds easy but if laundry is not taken care of regularly it will build up quickly.

Have you ever given any thought to the place where people were born and what influence their background might have had on their life?

When I was a young girl growing up in Fairhaven, Mass., I was influenced by my activities that consisted of boating, swimming, riding my bike, school, church, and playing with my friends.

We were gathered with some friends for an impromptu buffet. Every family brought a dish to share and chipped in a couple of dollars for a large delicious spiral cut ham. Everyone knew even before the dinner that the meal would be excellent. Joe was the one responsible for procuring the meat for the thrown together feast.
