Anniversary Cruise

It is really hard to believe that Jay and I have already been married a year! It seems like just weeks ago that we were dancing and laughing with everyone at our wedding reception, but the last year has just flown by!

To celebrate our 1st anniversary Jay and I took a Carnival cruise to the Caribbean the last week of September. It was a wonderful trip! We had never cruised before, but found a great deal on a balcony room and decided to go for it! We visited a private island in the Bahamas, then St. Thomas, San Juan and Grand Turk. All of the islands were beautiful, but St. Thomas was by far our favorite. We found a secluded beach called Sapphire Bay, walked right in from the shore with our snorkeling gear and ended up swimming with a sea turtle, sting ray and tons of fish. Jay was thrilled as it was his first time snorkeling ever!

In the Bahamas we went on a jet ski expedition with the ship and it was amazing. We each got our own jet ski and set out to follow the instructor through a quiet cove, and I was terrified to go faster than 20mph...but by the end I was topping out at 55mph and taking turns at 40! It was a blast! We want to go out and get a jet ski now, we had so much fun with them.

On top of all the snorkeling and jet skiing, we had a wonderful time on the boat. We ended up at a 4-top table for dinner with one other couple, Akos and Linda from Hungary. Akos and Linda were celebrating their honeymoon so we had a lot to talk about and so much in common. We became great friends by the time we pulled into port in Miami and we have been keeping in touch over e-mail since returning from the cruise. We look forward to hopefully seeing them next time we get to go to Europe!
