Sometimes...............Life is a Breeze...Carnival Breeze

Brenda J. Andrew

 

Sometimes you just have to get away.  

That is what we did last week on the Carnival Breeze.  

It was a fun trip we got to take with 8 other people,

and we only knew two of them before the trip started.  

There were new friendships made,

old ones rekindled, and a really great and relaxing time.

Our favorite Ports of Call are Jamaica, Grand Cayman, & Cozumel.  

We love the beaches at the Grand Cayman and Jamaica, &

love the shopping in Cozumel and people watching at Fat Tuesdays.

 

We got to snorkel in the Grand Cayman and

actually saw a Nurse Shark.

That was a first for me, actually seeing a Shark sleeping in the water.

Those type of sharks eat plankton, not people,

so It wasn't that scary!!

Cruise ships have come a long way.  

You actually have internet in your room

so you can check in on your emails,

even make a phone call to shore if necessary.  

Cell phone service as soon as you are in Port,

you just turn it on and you are good to go.

 It cost a little more but

it is great knowing you are still able to do business

from where ever you go.

 

If you haven't taken a cruise, I highly recommend it.  

There is never a good time in this business to take time off for yourself.  

We had closings, and option periods going on,

kids in school, but it was time.  

The first half of the year was so busy.  

I was busy selling real estate,

and Jim was finishing up a remodel on a house we bought.  

 

We are fortunate to be working in this industry today,

We are very thankful for our clients patience

as we try to get some R&R.  

All work and no play

makes for a not so happy professional.  

We all need downtime,

even if there is still work to be done.  

 

As my Jamaican Friends would say,

Don't Worry......Be Happy!

Thanks for stopping by Wayne Martin It was definitely different before the internet.  We are so connected now.  It was a fun and relaxing trip although still working almost every day.  It was worth it to get away and see the beauty!  Have a great day!

Thanks for stopping by Norma J. Elkins - this is probably my 6th cruise.  I hated to take the time off, but knew we both needed it.  My husband got the captains hats and I felt like I had to post this with a few pics.  It was a lot of fun and we met several people.  You might want to think of going again.  Have a great day!

Sounds like a great time.  I'd love to go on a small sailing yacht around the Carribean.  Get into the smaller ports.

Good morning Sheila Anderson - It was a great time.  The only thing is, by the time you relax and start enjoying yourself, then it is time to go home.  Have a great day!

Brenda- you're smart to take time away from your home and relax and refresh with friends and new friends.  We're all lucky to be living in a time when technology has given us the ability to get work done, even if we're not at work!
