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

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...

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.

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...

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 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 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....

Dec 31, 2011 - Nassau, Bahamas

 Nassau, Bahamas: It’s a close call but we’re thinking this is our favourite stop. From the beautiful waterfront and resort style streets and shops to the staid white suited police officers and historic government house, this is a wonderful destination and we are very happy that we have the opportunity to enjoy it even if just for a few hours.

Dec 29, 2011 - Heading to Nassau

Hi All! We traveled from Chubb Cay to Nassau today. We almost made it before dark except they told us to wait until the cruise ships left the harbor. So...we had an interesting late night trip into the harbor. It's amazing how different it looks like at night. Luckily we have been here enough times that all's well. Hope all is well with you and yours. Thanks for stopping by. Cathie on s/v INTERLUDE. OUT.
