Virtual Carribean Beach Getaway and Winnner Announcement

Hello friends!
How do you like to have a little winter getaway with me?
I am Virginia's travel companion/ pet cat Alexia.
 Each time the Lu family goes on a family trip, I get to tag along. I know, lucky me, I am living the dream life! 😁

Once you are on board, you know you are all SET.  See the pattern? I wish I could take the extra lobster home.

Interesting places and island-- Grand Turk
 Remember that song Magaritaville? Now I have been to one.

Virginia's two delightful big kids. They are awesome travel companions. Stephanie loves to read Kindles at the balcony and often falls asleep with the warm sea breeze after about 5 minutes....😴 David loves checking out the onboard activities. He was always on the go---either feasting (had multiple entrees!!), swimming or working out in the gym.

(Dutch Cafe on Konigdam)

While cruising, I saw rainbow!

From Half Moon Cay (Bahamas)-the private island of Holland America Cruise Line.

I love that island....

My sentiment exactly!

It was tough to let it all hang out on the beach in St. Thomas, but I pulled through.

I happened to spy Virginia's Family on the beach. It looks like they had fun!

 Hope you enjoyed the little virtual trip with me.

Yup, until next time. See ya!

It's snowing in Michigan so these photos were especially wonderful.

My parents and sister and brother in law just left Ft. Lauderdale yesterday, for a cruise that goes to the Panama Canal. They were going Holland American too.
Love the pictures and the card from the giveaway.

Alexa's travelogues are always a special treat. As the rain pours here, I wish I was on that island with you. You all look so tan and happy in paradise. David doesn't look like he ever eats...must be good genes.

Our family twice took a Caribbean cruise over the Christmas holiday and enjoyed every port! Thank you so very much for the contest giveaway. I'll look forward to receiving your card. I only have two Altenew sets, Beautiful Day and Vintage Roses.
