More Cruise Photos

The group above are the original "509ers," for Table 509 of the cruise last year. They are the reason I went on the cruise again. These women are the best group of friends. We spent our entire dinners laughing, laughing, and laughing. We are a totally diverse group of people and just ended up at the same table. I love these women!

As friends send me photos I'll post them. First is this beautiful sunset from Sandy.
Here are the two Sandy's, below. They are best friends and two of the nicest people! They are very creative and make beautiful designs. If you can see, they are wearing their completed Marcia DeCoster Terracita earrings, which are just divine!

Bead Cruise

A few weeks ago I went on a Bead Cruise (Bead Cruise '09). I like to get away from the Michigan winter and this is a great way to do that. Above, a photo of the menu at the famous Cafe Du Monde, known for their deep fried and heavenly doughnuts.

A photo of the ship, the Norwegian Spirit, and a duck (?) sunning comfortably.

Mom in Cozumel. Lots of shops, lots of store owners trying to get you to buy their goods, lots of practice bargaining over prices.

On the last night of the cruise we all dressed up and had a group dinner. Below is me, my mother and cruise-buddy, and Marcia DeCoster, wearing her lovely shawl, which is accessorized with Swarovski crytals.
The Bead Cruise is a lot of fun. Nice people, sunny skies, beading or excursions depending on your interests, and, of course, all you eat all day!
