Here are some brief Highlights of our recent Caribbean Cruise Ports Visited:

Bahamas – Private island, nice white sandy beaches and good lunch. Virgin Islands – Did some shopping and split a ¾ burger at a tavern. Puerto Rico – Bus tour of Old San Juan, browsed the local shops and even toured an ancient defense building near the shore. Turks and Cacos – Included Margaretaville and some shopping. They had some drinking and dancing contests around the pool. Had white sandy beaches here too!

Our cruise Director named Butch from MN was hyper and off the wall!
Who names their child Butch these days??

Here is a pic of our Head Waiter Sergei from Estonia!

Additional Highlights of the week:

Great Food – Filet, lobster tail, prime rib, and several seafood plates. Molten chocolate was the desert of choice and we even got the recipe for it!

Weather was mid-upper 70’s the entire time! It rained once briefly on the Virgin Islands when we were inside eating lunch!

Met some new friends in our dinner group form Los Angeles! Amy and Geoff were our age and they were a riot to sit by!
Interesting Carnival Liberty Cruise Facts:

-Half a million dollars of product loaded each week.
-Chefs serve over 30K meals a day.
-Busy days, 140 buses transfer people to the Miami ports for cruises.
-Carnival Liberty ship holds 3200 people.
-20 Different countries where cruise workers were from!

Overall it was a very fun adventure for 7 days! We were not ready to go home to the freezing winter awaiting us! Thanks to Carnival Liberty for hosting us and we look forward to our next cruise down the road!

You can't get any better reporting on cruising than this!! I hope you enjoyed the post!! :

Real Picture

Since the Major Leage Soccer season is winding down and will end at the end of the month, I thought it would be appropriate to add this picture from a game last year! This game was the same day Jenny had her bridal pictures taken and she could not attend the game with me. I brought a friend along with me and had him take a picture of me with Leo the lion! he is the mascot for Real Salt Lake!! Good times!!

Page AZ and Lake Powell.

Below are a few pics from my trip to Page AZ and Lake Powell over the weekend. I sang with the Kay Starr Singers at a Fireside on Saturday night and 2 Sacrament meeting programs on Sunday morning. Saturday morning/afternoon we rented 3 boats, one of which pictured above, and made a loop around Lake Powell. We launched from the Antelope Marina in Page AZ. A very nice Marina and area down there. Part of us jumped in the lake and nearly froze! The water temperature was in the 70's!!

This is Captain Petersen and myself outside the Stake Center just before we headed off to Lake Powell! Those are sure great white legs there!! I think the red colored tree in the background is much prettier!!

This is Glen Canyon Dam taken from our
boat! This crosses over into Page AZ and is
quite the view from both the water and
crossing over on the bridge itself!!

This is one of the 3 boats we rented. There
was no water skiing, but it was a great 3 hour
tour!! Captain Petersen was running this
