As promised .. here are more photos from our 4th day on the Stampin' Up! cruise.  

DAY 4 – ST. LUCIA – part 2

Our taxi tour took us to "Diamond Falls"…. we really had to laugh when we got there… it looked as if someone had turned on a garden hose at the top…. oh well….  at least it was a break from the Mr. Toad's Wild Ride through the windy roads 🙂

But the GREAT THING about Diamond Falls was the tropical gardens surrounding it… Jason and I had a field day with our cameras…  (since many of you have asked, I thought i'd add the info here… Jason has a Nikon Coolpix P90 and I use a Sony Cybershot point n shoot).

   If it weren't so daaaaaaaaaang hot and humid there, I could have stayed for hours taking pix… but… the A/C in the van was calling me …

When we got back to the ship, it was time for a late lunch:

  Every night at dinner, our assistant waiter would bring numerous cokes to Jason 🙂

That evening for dinner we had huge shrimp that were still in the shell, so the head waiter took them out of the shell for Jason and I !  What service!
