The Caribbean cruise was an excellent vacation – nothing like spending time by the beach and the beautiful color of the ocean in that region. But… all good things must come to an end. Fortunately, there are lots of new good things coming up!
Here is a quick photo blog with cruise highlights:
We took a tender from the ship to the beach, and hung out for about 4 hours. It was crazy windy and it rained. This was my least favorite beach.
Montego Bay, Jamaica
I have been to Ocho Rios, but never Montego Bay. It’s nice and the drinks were cheapest here. We avoided the market because the people are so pushy. I feel so bad that they are so poor and here we are, on an extravagant vacation.
Georgetown, Grand Cayman
This was my favorite stop. I’d love to just stay in a hotel on the beach for a few days there. The sand was like sugar and the water was the best.
Here is why….. Take a shot, get groped. They were grabbing chicks’ boobs too. No, I did not do it…
I got in workouts on the spin bikes at the gym on the ship, running on beach and treadmill, swimming in the ocean, and climbing many a flight of stairs on the cruise ship. 15 floors, and I rarely took the elevator. That is a lot of stairs over a week. I actually got in some good, short efforts!

The biggest cruise ship in the world – Liberty of the Seas.
It snowed 16 inches in Boulder just 2 days before I got back, so yesterday I came home to huge piles of snow…
Now, it’s back to work! I got in a ride towards Gold Hill today. I could definitely feel the altitude and I was dehydrated from my loooong travel day yesterday. I leave for the Ouachita 60 race on Thursday. Between now and then, it’s catch up at work. I finally bent over and gave USA Cycling 150 bucks to renew my cycling license. Yaaaay.
