|Shopping Plaza in Cozumel, Mexico|
Hello and welcome to the Focused on Story Blog by J.Q. Rose.
Last week you joined me in an Arm Chair Travel Tour of our cruise to the Western Caribbean where we enjoyed the sights at Mahogany Bay on the island of Roatan, Honduras. Today I'm sharing photos of Cozumel, Mexico. Come along.
The warm tropical breezes and views added to the enjoyment of this special meal at the beach restaurant.
Or was it that few sips of Mexican beer I tried? Hmmmm...Sol is the name of the beer. Ever sipped it? It was refreshing.
|As we traveled on, we saw this cute market of thatched huts. All kinds of souveniers, jewelry, clothing, etc packed into these small stores.|
|Wares for sale displayed on the wall of the hut sitting right on the beach.|
|Couldn't resist taking a pic of these cute little chihuahua statues. |
No, I didn't bring them home with me.
We experienced breathtaking sunrises and sunsets over the vast ocean. The best part of the trip for me were those early mornings when we would gather on the lido deck for coffee and juice just talking about our experiences and our plans for the day. Truly relaxing and peaceful while most of our shipmates slept in their beds.
I did not enjoy the trip when the ship rocked and rolled on the seas, but I did when it was quiet and calm. Believing the waves "rocked me to sleep" at night comforted me a little.
Will I ever go again? I doubt I will cruise to the Caribbean after this second trip. But I won't get on my soapbox about these cruises and bore you with my feelings about the trip. You can try cruising for yourself to determine if it is right for you. Are you a cruiser? Tell us about your experience!
Thanks for stopping in.

Terror on Sunshine Boulevard by J.Q. Rose
Rescuing a naked woman lying in a geranium bed? Investigating mysterious murders?
Not the usual calls in a Florida retirement community for volunteer first responder Jim Hart.
Back of the Book: Rescuing a naked woman lying in a geranium bed or investigating mysterious murders are not the usual calls for first responder Jim Hart. He expects slip and fall accidents or low blood pressure emergencies in his retirement community of Citrus Ridge Senior Community and Golf Resort. The ghastly crime scenes turn the winter time fun into a terrifying season of death and mystery when the authorities cannot track down the predator responsible.
Jim and his wife Gloria could escape the horror and grief by returning to their northern home, but concern for their friends and residents keep them in Florida. With the entire community in a dither over the deaths, the Harts participate in the normal winter activities of golfing, dancing, and pool parties with their friends to distract them from the sadness and loss.
Can Jim and Gloria work with the authorities to discover who or what is killing the seniors on Sunshine Boulevard and stop the increasing body count?
