|Hanging out in the ocean|

I've decided on Mondays to start writing about different trips I've taken through the years. With snow and ice still hanging around, it's nice to think about a time when temperatures were in the 80's or higher and there was plenty of sand, surf, and stingrays.
The prize was a week long cruise to the Caribbean. The time away from work didn't count against the winner's vacation time either. This was mine and Lisa's first cruise, so we were eager to hit the high seas.
We left from Miami in August 2001, four weeks after the birth of our son Mason. It was hard leaving him behind (kinda), but we knew he was in good hands with my parents. Our cabin was amazing, as we had a balcony that overlooked the ocean as we headed toward each of our destinations.
We made great memories on that trip and had a blast. It was the first of several cruises we've taken since then. If you're looking to plan a vacation, consider giving my friend Trisha May a call. She's a travel agent who really does have A Love For Travel.
