Ahoy mateys, Jaggie here.  We're finally back from our quilting cruises.  We left March 28th to begin our adventures and we arrived back home early last week.  We had several back to back cruises.  We had a great time, met some really nice sewers and quilters.  If you've never been on a cruise, you should think about joining us on one of our cruises.  Our first cruise took us to Puerto Rico, St. Maarten and St. Kitts on Celebrity Cruise Line.  While we were in S. Kitts, we went to a batik factory and we made our own batik fabric.  We had such a great time.  I came home with three pieces of batik fabric that is all mine.  It is a pretty teal color, my favorite color.  We got off of that ship and jumped on Royal Caribbean and we went to the Bahamas, St. Maarten (again) and St. Thomas.  We had a great time at all of the beaches, sadly, I was the only bear there.  We got off of that ship and our next ship was Holland America.  We spent three weeks on that one.  I got to be really good friends with two of the girls that worked on the ship.  One was Mona Lisa, she made yummy waffles!!  Then I met Finna, she was the ice cream girl at night,yummmmmmmmm.
There were other nice people, too, but they were my favorites.  We went to so many places, it was great.  We were in Columbia one day, that was fun, there were peacocks running around everywhere.  We went to Costa Rica and bought lots of souvenirs there.  It was really hot and muggy, we felt right at home.  We stopped at a lot of Mexican ports and we found fabric stores at every stop.  We had a great time buying fabrics that we've never seen here at home.  We shared with everybody in our group. They would come to our classroom every night after dinner to see what we had gotten that day.  We sewed every single night until 10:00, then I had to go to bed.

The Captain told me that we traveled 5727 nautical miles.  That is equal to 6586 miles.  That was only our last cruise, not counting the two we did before that.  I guess that's why I was so tired when we got home.  Well, that's all for now.
