I've been looking at old pictures, and I came across these from a few years ago, when Sam and I went on a cruise with our friends.  

We all had an Alaskan cruise planned for this past July.....but of course, COVID decided we would need to cancel that cruise!!

Our friend group usually goes on some kind of trip every year!  Some trips have been to Branson Mo. (a few times) ...We've been to South Louisiana, and we have been to Florida, Jamaica, Cancun, Cozumel and to Ply Del Carmen.

We loved this .....swimming with the stingrays!!

This was in Ply Del Carmen.....What an awesome trip this was.  We swam with the dolphins!  Funny thing about that was.....just the day before, Sam had one of those pedicures where the fish eat on your feet.  (sounds awful I know)

But....while he was swimming with the Dolphins, they kept biting at his feet.  We later found out that it was because they can smell very well and they were picking up the scents of the fish from Sam's pedicure!!  πŸ˜

On a cruise!!   Always have to snap a few pictures of the ladies....

LOL.....may have been a little Windy that day!!

Sam and our wonderful friend....Susie!  They both wore that calls for a picture!!


Waiting on our cruise to take off!!

One of our many Branson trips!!  Who knew that it was going to be freezing cold??   We had to go to Walmart and buy jackets and gloves and scarfs!  We visited Shows, ate some great food, visited Dogwood Canyon, ate some more great food and laughed a WHOLE LOT!!

Sam and I are Blessed to have all of these Lifelong friends and we are all Blessed to have the opportunity to travel as a group.  I'm ready to go again!!

hugs y'all




  1. Pictures are so wonderful, as memories live on with them.

  2. Hi Shug~

    I love to relive old times...looks like you had such a great time with your friends!! I love the dolphin story! I've always been curious about those pedicure fish...I'd be afraid they'd bite my toes!!

    Have a good week!

    Hugs and Love,

  3. Wonderful vacation photos, my favorite is the waterfalls! What a funny story about the pedicure and foot biting!

  4. This was fun to go down memory lane with you. And it is a true blessing to have lifelong friends.
    Love, Carla

  5. Yes, it's great to go on trips with friends! We have many times in past years from Vegas to Mexico, Hawaii, Savannah and so forth. Your pics are great and it sounds like many good times for you all!

  6. Looks like a lot of fun, with a lot of good friends. I've never been on a cruise. Can't even imagine what it would be like. Enjoyed your pictures.

  7. Such fun! One day we will all get back to taking trips.

    We took a vacation to the Southeast years ago and we were
    so cold that we tried to find hoodies, nope none. Who needs
    a hoodie in North Carolina in July?? We did. Not sure why
    we didn't pack them as I usually have one for each of us.

    Happy Weekend!

Thank you for Blessing me today with your comments...

Vacation time is the BEST!!   Wouldn't it be great if we were all able to take a good vacation at least 10 days or so, ever other month?...
