This cruise took Ma and I from San Juan to St. Croix, St. Barth (Barthelemy, Barts), Guadeloupe,
St. (Sint) Maarten (Martin), and St. Thomas. What cruise ship sailing the Caribbean doesn't visit
St. Thomas? The cruise was from December 11, 1993 to December 18th on the Sun Viking,
a Royal Caribbean cruise ship.

and then go over a small hill to make their landing on a small strip. Incredible.

April 19, 2020 - I began cleaning out my closets a while back since I decided to rent the small room of my apartment
to a friend. I had to shift things around which had been stored in the closets to make space. In so doing, I decided
to get rid of the many photo albums I had stored in the foyer closet. Damn, I did not know I had that many photo
albums. Before shredding the photos/postcards and souvenirs, I looked at them and decided to keep a few.
I will post what I saved and scanned on various pages. Some photos and postcards may be posted on other
pages. Everything posted will be as scanned without adjusting the photo for color, clarity, etc.
What you see is what you get. Watermark will not be added. No kallaloo here, just simplicity.
Below are the photos/postcards/souvenirs being added. Keep in mind, some may be duplicates.
