You all probably thought I fell off the face of the earth, but Tom and I were on a cruise. We went to the Bahamas for his job. It was a cruise/conference for the pastors and leaders of the Association of Bridge Churches (ABC). I know, I know, it sounds like a tough job, but someone had to do. Seriously, I was concerned with Tom’s health how he would do with all the traveling and the running of things. He did well. When we could rest, we did and that helped lots. Monday he will have his second round of chemo.
It was great to see people we haven’t seen since the last year’s conference again. These were a great bunch of people to go on a cruise with. Some of our favorite moments were when we had a chance to sit and talk to different people. I took lots of pictures of course. So I thought I would “show” you the cruise in pictures. It was a four day cruise so this will be done in either two or three parts.
We arrived a couple of days early. This is the view from our room. I thought of you Tina.
I looked out the window from my hotel room and saw these ducks swimming around in the pool. Aren't they cute?
One of the things I helped with was get people on the bus. We didn't want to leave anyone behind. Tom and I waiting on the buses.
The buses arrived at Port Canaveral where our ship left from.
A close look of Monarch of the Sea, a Royal Caribbean ship. If you ever get a chance to go on a cruise I would suggest Royal Caribbean. This was their smallest ship.
This was the first time that we cruised and had a window in our stateroom. It was nice because the room was spacious. This is the view from our stateroom before we set sail.
By the elevators there stood a model of the ship. It listed all the floors and what were on them.
Before you can set sail, you have to do a life boat drill. Everyone always look so comfortable in their life jackets, but it's good to know what to do in case of an emergency. Below in life vests are Ron, Chris, Ben, John & Sara
The rock climbing wall at night. The only activity that I had with this wall was walking past it and taking a picture.
Dinner time was fun. We sat with this lovely pastor and his wife from England, Tony & Dwee. If you are ever sad, visit England and spend time with them. They will have you laughing within seconds.
Jodi and Josh (Josh is worship leader who I blogged about before) and Joni and Eric who run the intern program for Streams Canada.
Tom with Michael French. He is a pastor from Alabama and has a great sense of humor. Stay tuned for his lovely wife Elisa who can rock it in karaoke.
