Hello Haiti & Happy Holiday (h)Offer !

Day 3 plaque tuesday

Well on Tuesday we arrived at Haiti.  I couldn’t believe how hot it was at 7am in the morning Surprised smile when I was watching our approach to Haiti from the balcony – and then I became even more excited when I saw all the little boats approaching the ship to greet us – it was touching to see them all.

Sally and I took it slow and easy this morning as we were having a beach day today.  We had a leisurely breakfast, and then got changed and made our way to the beaches !  The water was totally see-through – its been a long time since I’ve seen water that clear !

Hmmmm where to go …. ???  We decided to hit Columbus Cove, so we took a very short train ride to the nearest stop, and were hit by the small stallholders trying to ‘talk’ us into buying.  After a lot of bartering, I eventually bought a sunhat, but there was no way that I was going to pay the original $30 asking price Surprised smile After my purchase, we managed to race through the ‘shopping area’ and arrived at the beautiful Columbus Cove.

We parked ourselves under a palm tree, as the heat from the sun was unreal, and we were joined by the lovely Lyssa Griffin Zwolanek and her sister.   The water was wonderfully warm, and I took great advantage of its healing qualities to rest my hips and back.  It was great to be able to take the pressure of them, and so I spent my day alternating between half an hour swimming and half an hour sunbathing !

Lunch was a stunning BBQ provided by the ship.  They had three different stations around Labadee where you could lunch, and they did not disappoint !  We took a leisurely stroll back to the ship, and happened upon the beach where I would have zipped the zip wire had I not have injured my pelvis Sad smile  I was gutted that I couldn’t do it, but I really did enjoy watching the late afternoon ‘zippers’ enjoying themselves !

That evening, we decided to sample the offerings from the Windjammer Marketplace. This was a buffet style restaurant with the most mouth-watering, stunning array of choices … it became our firm favourite, and apart from one night, we ate there every evening.

After dinner, we were extremely privileged to have a private performance of Chicago for the SU Achievers.


The show was as good, if not better, than any Broadway production of Chicago, and afterwards I understood and appreciated why the ships performance had won lots of Awards around the world.  It was absolutely incredible !

Ooops – I missed last nights Pillow Gift – so here are Day 2 and Day 3’s pillow gifts !  How lucky were we ?!!!
