Well hello "old" friends and hello to you new ones too.
It has been exactly 1 month since our anniversary cruise and I am coming to terms with separation anxiety! We took a seven day cruise on the largest cruise liner in the world...the Allure of the Seas. We have sailed with RCC several times but this boat takes the cake. It was just beautiful! I guess I will have to upload some pictures in the near future.
For now I thought it would be cool to post the video of DW and I on our excursion in St. Maarten. This is our second time doing a similar excursion. On our 20th anniversary, we took the America's Cup Challenge racing NZL 10 and NZL 12 (America's cup trial boats) in Nassau. This time we competed in the 12 meter challenge. IT ROCKED. As with the last time, two competing sailing teams are picked by "team captains". It is sort of like picking teams for kickball or something. Teams were picked then a coin flip determined which boat we would race; KC II Canada 2 or (Ta Da) Dennis Connor's Stars and Strips US 55 that won back the cup from the Aussies. So which boat did the Skips get? That is right....Canada 2
There was an actual Canadian who wanted to swap with someone so she could go on her country's boat. Oh and most of the Stars and Stripes team were Brits..go figure
Long story short...watch the video...camera work by my dear wife...God bless her (Gets a little art nouveau!). Her main job was to be bar wench...have to fight scurvy and dehydration don't you know?
So hope this isn't a violation of terms...or if it is Mods feel free to do your thing.
