Stampin' Up! Cruise 2010 - St. Lucia day 4, pt 2

As promised .. here are more photos from our 4th day on the Stampin' Up! cruise.  

DAY 4 - ST. LUCIA - part 2

Our taxi tour took us to "Diamond Falls".... we really had to laugh when we got there... it looked as if someone had turned on a garden hose at the top.... oh well....  at least it was a break from the Mr. Toad's Wild Ride through the windy roads :)

But the GREAT THING about Diamond Falls was the tropical gardens surrounding it... Jason and I had a field day with our cameras...  (since many of you have asked, I thought i'd add the info here... Jason has a Nikon Coolpix P90 and I use a Sony Cybershot point n shoot).

   If it weren't so daaaaaaaaaang hot and humid there, I could have stayed for hours taking pix... but... the A/C in the van was calling me ...

When we got back to the ship, it was time for a late lunch:

and just before dinner we got to visit with dear sweet Dawn and her daughter Jessie:

  Every night at dinner, our assistant waiter would bring numerous cokes to Jason :)

That evening for dinner we had huge shrimp that were still in the shell, so the head waiter took them out of the shell for Jason and I !  What service!

Wow, did he really eat 3 cheeseburgers? The capacity of the teenage male's stomach never ceases to amaze me.

I absolutely love all of your pictures from the cruise. Hopefully I can earn the cruise one day. Thanks for sharing!

Geez, those flowers are amazing! As are their embellishments of course, lol! That one you were wondering about almost looked like a type of bromeliad, I thought. Whatever, these are absolutely GORGEOUS pics! I can only imagine what this year's PB calendars will look like, lol! Thanks for sharing...~BetsyZ.

Hi! Those pictures are really cool! I love the lizard pictures - very nice. You're making me hungry again. Thanks for posting -it's fun to see all about your trip. Have a great weekend.


LOL patti...the photos of the plate with three hamburgers on it cracked me up and brought back memories of when my two were about aged 15-19...where the heck do they put that amount of food anyway? It was never ending...

Beautiful photos...the first one of the flower and lizard is amazing!!

Hi Patty! The flower in your photo with the lizard looks like a Bromeliad. I love them...they are so beautiful!!!

How the heck does that young man stay so small when he eats like that? Heaven knows we girls can't do that. I can feel my thighs expanding just thinking about all that stuff. Both of your pictures are absolutely outstanding and make me feel like I am there minus the heat and humidity. Thanks for sharing it with us. I love the pics of the Dougs.

The flowers are amazing Patty! I bet you have a beautiful scrapbook of just your flower pictures! Thanks for sharing!

Gail S.

Beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing with us :)


Love Mr. Lizard. Hope he makes it into your scrapbook! Maybe he should be added to your blog header as well! LOL! Isn't the service fun?! I got creme brulee and hot tea every night after my meal since I commented on how it was my favorite when it was offered the first night of the cruise. The staff just goes right with that! Good thing I eat a ton of fruits and veg, which fortunately are abundant on the cruises, because I think I gained 5# just from creme brulee!

Your photos of the trip are absolutely beautiful. If you don't mind me asking, but, what kind of camera do you use? How do you take such wonderful close up shots? Thank you for always sharing!

Trish Hoffman

Your pictures of the different kinds of flowers are just amazing. I love the little Lizard! just don't want to get near it. Do you really think that you can grow that flower here in the States? It would be wonderful if you could. I doubt that it would survive up by me in the cold Midwest. Were your ears ringing...I was telling my DH, who does most of our gardening, what beautiful roses you have. We lost 3 this Winter, so sad. We shall replace them and see what happens. Please keep sharing pictures of your garden, I just love seeing your flowers in full bloom. I love seeing your Cards and other creations too. lol.

Cyber hugs, Trish in Wisconsin
