Sail Away, Sail Away, Sail Away


Hello, Dear Ones!
I thought I would share with you about our cruise Mr. Precious and I took.
It was a trans Atlantic cruise from little ole Galveston to Barcelona, Spain.
It was the longest cruise we've taken yet ~ 15 days.
So today I thought I would share with you our ship.

We love the Royal Caribbean line and this was The Mariner of the Seas.
 Here we are so excited!
 A few snaps of the interior of the lovely ship. It had a promenade right down the center of the ship filled with shops and little eateries. We saw parades and entertainment there quite often! The bottom snap on the right is my tiny hand toasting to our voyage with a wine glass filled with potato sticks! Works for me!
 Here we are all dressed up for one of our formal nights.
 We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary (anniversary was in March) in one of the specialty restaurants "Chops".
I look so fat in this snap! I lean one way and everything just hangs! :)

 Always have to get a bathroom snap in!
Can you tell I'm trying to grow out my tiny hair?
I don't know what I'm going to do with it when it gets a little longer but I need a change.

Oh, I just had to share with you some of the displays that were in the stairwells.
Aren't these dishes so pretty and they are chopped just in the right places!

Look at the pieces below! I love it!


 I marveled at these wire kitchen creations.
 And cute cars...
 ...and elegant paper looking cars!
 Aren't these the cutest!


Lord, have mercy!
Embroidered ironing board covers!
This was cute but I was in no mood to be thinking about laundry!

I'll share more about our ports soon.

I'm joining Smiling Sally for Blue Monday
 A Stroll Thru Life for Inspire Me Tuesday

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Sail Away

Let me sail, let me sail,
Let the Orinoco Flow,
Let me reach, let me beach
On the shores of Tripoli.
Let me sail, let me sail,
Let me crash upon your shore,
Let me reach, let me beach
Far beyond the Yellow Sea.

Sail away, sail away, sail away.

From Bissau to Palau, in the shade of Avalon,
From Fiji to Tiree and the Isles of Ebony,
From Peru to Cebu hear the power of Babylon,
From Bali to Cali, far beneath the Coral Sea.

Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, up, adieu. Oh. [Repeat: x3]

Sail away, sail away, sail away.

From the North to the South, Ebudæ into Khartoum,
From the deep sea of Clouds to the island of the moon,
Carry me on the waves to the lands I've never been,
Carry me on the waves to the lands I've never seen.
We can sail, we can sail with the Orinoco Flow,
We can sail, we can sail.
(Sail away, sail away, sail away)

We can steer, we can near
With Rob Dickins at the wheel,
We can sigh, say goodbye Ross and his dependencies
We can sail, we can sail
(Sail away, sail away, sail away)

We can reach, we can beach,
On the shores of Tripoli,
We can sail, we can sail
(Sail away, sail away, sail away)
From Bali to Cali, far beneath the Coral Sea,
We can sail, we can sail
(Sail away, sail away, sail away)
From Bissau to Palau, in the shade of Avalon,
We can sail, we can sail
(Sail away, sail away, sail away)
We can reach, we can beach,
Far beyond the Yellow Sea,
We can sail, we can sail
(Sail away, sail away, sail away)
From Peru to Cebu hear the power of Babylon,
We can sail, we can sail.
(Sail away, sail away, sail away)
We can sail, we can sail.
