Caribbean Scenes

by Maggie Sefton



A beautiful beach in Martinique where we got to relax for a couple of hours then had lunch at the beachside cafe.


I got back to Colorado Sunday night and to my house in Fort Collins at midnight.  Since the cruise ship the Norwegian Breakaway returned to its New York City Port Terminal Sunday, we all arrived to the Winter Delights of a New York City and cold of 9 degrees.  Yep.  You read that right.  Boy, what a shock after all that Caribbean warmth.  Super Shuttle delivered me to LaGuardia airport and I hurried inside.

An evening flight to Colorado awaited and a return to Colorado where---believe it or not----the temps were in the 60s during the daytime and about 35 at night.  I can't tell you how happy I was to see the temps staying in the mid-60s the rest of this week. :)  I don't do Cold Weather well.  So----I thought I would post several photos of some of the last two places we visited before leaving the sunny and warm Caribbean.  Hopefully they will remind those of you in colder climes that Spring and Summer's warm weather is waiting just around the corner----well, next month's corner.  Enjoy-----

My favorite beach of all was in Angtigua.  The people there are super friendly.
