I have not posted anything in a while as I was on a week-long cruise to Bermuda aboard the Explorer of the Seas (shown in the above photo).
My beautiful wife and I traveled with three other couples and we were fortunate in that we set sail from Cape Liberty, New Jersey - across from the Statue of Liberty and New York City - to Bermuda just after Hurricane Rafael and we returned home from Bermuda just ahead of Hurricane Sandy.
The large cruise ship rolled a bit on the way back to Cape Liberty, as the storm was coming up behind us, but we rolled with it and we had a good time on the Atlantic Ocean.
We caught wonderful weather in Bermuda and we traveled all over the beautiful island, from the Royal Dockyard, where our cruise ship was docked, to Hamilton and later to St George.
We especially loved swimming in Horseshoe Bay (photos below). For two days we visited Horseshoe Bay and went swimming in the clear, warm water and enjoyed sitting on the beach, drinking beer and mixed drinks, and basking in the sun.
It was a fine vacation with good friends.
