Mar 19, 2013 - Long Island Breeze, Long Island, Bahamasa

I am sitting here at a resort called the Long Island Breeze. It's owners Mike and Jackie are great and it's always fun to come back to Thompson Bay, Salt Pond, Long Island, Bahamas! We came over with the rally from George Town. There were about 50 boats who came with us. The majority of them are long gone and we are enjoying the peace and quiet of Long Island..called the Friendly Island and it is! We are here with buddies Bob and Penny on Pretty Penny and Mark and Jan on Seas the Day with puppy Daisy. We did a tour of the island by car a...

Jan 20, 2013 - Bimini to Nassau

January 20, 2013 Hi All! We had a great time in Bimini. Doyle our dockmaster was great and told us many stories about the island. We stayed at Bimini Sands Resort and Marina in South Bimini. We were here with many boats most of them we know from past years. The skies were blue, white puffy clouds and the weather in the high 70s during the day and mid-60s at night…BUT the wind was strong in the wrong direction. We ended up staying two weeks which certainly put a huge dent in our cruising budget but if we had to have a place to hang out this...

Dec 9, 2012 - All Day on the Ship

Sunday, 12/9/12 – all day on ship Each day we get a newsletter giving us listings of what’s going on that day. In our group of 10, we all found plenty of things to do besides eat. All of us attended some of the presentations today. Jim & I went to a photography session given by a man who was born & raised in Fremont, NE. Sandra Day O’Connor is also on the ship & she attended 2 of the same sessions we went to. Most of us worked out at the fitness center at one time or other. This evening was the Captain’s Welcome Dinner. We ate during the...

Panama Canal Cruise

Dec 8, 2012 - To the Ship

Saturday, 12/8/12 – to the ship Most of us ate at Subway. We could fill our stomachs cheaply, and it was reasonably close. Jim & Rox went through the Pirates Museum. Others walked around Nassau a bit or sat by the hotel pool. We needed to check out by 11 & then head to the wharf to begin the boarding process. This was AWFUL. There was only one luggage screening device and only one screener for humans. Jean & Jerry went fairly early, so they only stood in line 90 minutes. The rest of us stood in the heat & humidity for 2 hours & 15 or 20...

Panama Canal Cruise

Dec 7, 2012 - where it all began

Nassau has a special place in our hearts because it was the first port that we ever came to on a cruise ship back in 1973 on a four day cruise. We weren’t sure that we would like cruising and I remember crying when it was time to get off. And here we are on cruise #70. There wasn’t much new for us here although we have never been to Atlantis, a huge resort that dominates the view from the harbor. People pay big bucks to stay there and it is understandable that they don’t want a bunch of cruise passengers clogging up the works, but it would...

Dec 7, 2012 - To DIA, Atlanta & Nassau

Friday, 12/7 – to the airport & Nassau We and Bruce Cochran & Pam McCain are in Denver at a Super 8. We all woke up before 4:30 a.m., had a little breakfast & then caught the shuttle to DIA. No problems checking in, but the security scan caught Bruce’s Swiss army knives which he had intended to put in his checked bag. So long, knives. Our plane left DIA 45 minutes late, but we weren’t told why. Still had enough time in Atlanta to grab a lunch & catch our flight to Nassau. Another couple in our group, Jim & Janet Howard, were on that leg of...

Panama Canal Cruise

Jun 14, 2012 - Thursday

Great day, got up early and met students to find out what instruments they'll be playing in band, then awards ceremony, then looked at the apartment where I'll live-beautiful-then staff party-then some work on the computer-then out again-then more work at the computer. More details to come but it was a good day.

Jackie's Travels

Jun 13, 2012 - Tuesday and Wednesday

Tuesday: Left the apartment at 8:15am when my new principal picked me up for breakfast followed by work. We stopped at starbucks and then headed to school. Did some work and met with some folks in the morning, then headed out to look for apartments. There are three finalists-first, a two story stand alone house on 1/2 acre about a five minute walk to the beach, restaurants, and some shops. Safe, behind a gate, and very nice and cool inside-furnished to suit us. The second is an apartment not too far from there. Another stand alone unit with...

Jun 11, 2012 - First Impressions: Bahamas and LCIS

Report on the day(s): Travel to the Bahamas went smoothly. We made the ferry, were able to meet Dad in the airport, and were also able to check all the bags/sax and everything got here safely, except a mystery missing shoe. My first flight (red-eye from Seattle to Miami) was fine, although I didn't sleep as much as I had wanted. My time in the Miami airport was spent at a Cuban cafe where I had epenadas for breakfast with cafe con leche. The plane from Miami to Nassau was bigger than I anticipated-about the same size as the planes from...

Jackie's Travels

Mar 3, 2012 - Water Wonderland

This entry covers the long planned week at Atlantis. We parked the boat in slip 10 just before noon on Saturday and before the kids began arriving at the nearby Nassau airport. Wrights and Lavinders came in on the same flight and shared a minibus. Jean was there to meet them and watch as Carson bit his lip after a head bump. Bloody lip and all, it was a joyous reunion. The two families had joining condos on the first floor and not far from the boat. And, Kim and David joined us on the boat. Before long, everyone was in a swim suit and...

Mar 3, 2012 - Nassau, Bahamas

Got on board the Maasdam on Friday, 3/2. Have a lanai cabin (sliding door onto the Lower Promenade deck with special surface so folks can't see in as they walk by; our own 2 reserved deck chairs & small table to the right of the door on the deck). Meals have been very good! The evening musical shows are quite excellent. Nassau was our first port. We went ashore to do our own walking tour using pages from a cruise port book I bought from Amazon.com. We spent about 2 hours exploring; very hot and humid! Our impressions of this city we've...

Mar 2, 2012 - Cruising coming up!

Today we board the Maasdam about noon. A hotel shuttle will transfer us from the hotel to the ship. Really anxious to get on board and start 'nesting' in our cabin. Hope a new map has appeared with this message so you can see where we shall be tomorrow - Nassau, and then a day at sea. Don't forget to check the list of red topics in the upper right corner of the opening screen. Click on "itinerary" to see the list of the islands we shall be visiting in the next 3 weeks. Unsure how often I can get online to write more entries but we'll see....
