Welcome back to “Travels with Skip and Debbie.” We are presently on the Regal Princess cruise ship. I have final gotten some photos processed so I can put them on our blog. The above photo is a group of ships in port at Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) Our ship has just set sail. (I do not know why they still call it sailing when there’s not a sail in sight).
Above is the atrium of the ship. This area is surrounded by shops and restaurants.
A view over the back of the ship…..
And a view towards the front.
Debbie uses sea days to catch up on some reading.
Our first stop was supposed to be Grand Cayman, but the seas were so choppy, they cancelled our snorkeling excursion. So, we proceeded on to Jamaica.
Early morning view of Montego Bay.
Our first excursion on Jamaica was a chair lift ride up Mystic Mountain.
We were greeted by some beautiful flowers….
And some hummingbirds. There was an area where there were hummingbird feeders and plants.
I liked the looks of this plant, but I don’t have a clue what it is.
Debbie and I were thrilled to see these Eastern Streamtail hummers. Check out the long tail. We don’t see these guys in our back yard!
Lucky shot! This guy took off a fraction of a second after I took his portrait.
It may be our imagination, but these hummers seem slightly larger than the ones we have at home. Maybe ours fight too much over the food and that stunts their growth…. Just sayin’.
Our next post will be a continuation of Mystic Mountain hummers and some acrobats.
