Caribbean Vacation

I love visiting tropical places, don’t you?

Some of you may not have noticed, but I have been gone on vacation for the past.

I do love the capability to schedule my blog posts so that I don’t have a one week lapse in my blog.

Well, my family and I have just returned home from a vacation to the Caribbean.



I would love to tell you all about it, but I can’t……

At least not verbally.

You see, I haven’t been able to speak for the past three days.

If I could speak to you, I would tell you about the beautiful plants and gardens that I saw.

However, I can show you pictures of some of the strange and unusual plants that I saw….

 I would remark at how warm and beautiful the ocean water was and the breathtaking beach views.

Caribbean Vacation, St. Thomas

We were able to visit St. Maarten, St. Thomas and the Bahamas.

Even if I cannot speak, I can still show you pictures of some of the plants that I saw that I cannot identify, hoping that maybe some of you may know what they are.  Like this flowering tree below….

If only I could speak, I would tell you that we had a wonderful time with our entire family.

We went with my husband’s parents and his sister’s family.

I was sad to see our vacation end.  But, I must say that I glad to be home again.

There is nothing that can compare to sleeping in your own bed, don’t you agree?

I am thankful that I do not need to rely on my voice to communicate with all of you 🙂

Sadly, that is not true with trying to communicate with my family.

Unfortunately, I lost my voice on the last day of our vacation.

Yesterday, I visited the doctor, who diagnosed me with not only a virus that is affecting my vocal cords, but also with pneumonia.

I have never had pneumonia before…..

My mother stopped by today with lunch and to give me some TLC.

You know what?  You never outgrow your need for a little mothering now and then 🙂


I hope that you are all staying well.

I am going to take a nap now……

A Wonderful Memory…..
