SoccerTiki you should have Woo Hoo plan your next trip, ha ha! You are lucky to have your own professional Tour Agent in the family.

TikiHula it was so hot for Dan, not for the rest of us, that he kept choosing white over Hawaiian.

LoriLovesTiki they sure were colorful.

hang10tiki this was my second python hug in my lifetime. I hope it's not the last.

DooWop so many mugs to make and so little time. That would be a fun mug. We like the vintage Cobra's Fang mug that Babalu brought back a few years ago.

===============================================
At this point in time we are in Antigua. We boarded our tour bus and they guy in front of us had a KU hat. I asked him which Hawaiian Island he found the hat on but when he turned around I could read the front said Kentucky University. Dan and I just think tikis all the time.


The City of St. Johns.


Some ruins at the top of a hill.


A spectacular view of the harbor. Then disaster for someone who loves to take photographs to share.


Our tour took us to Nelson's port where we could could view these pillars. My camera ran out of space so this is taken off the inter-net. I missed lots of photo ops this day but luckily I was able to buy a disk once we were back on board the ship.




The sun sets as we sail on to St. Maarten.


We arrived and decided that we should walk to town. Our tour on this day didn't leave until 1 PM.


45 minutes later we arrived just as everything started to open.


It was very hot out so we took an almost empty boat back to the ship. When we got off the waiting line to take the boat to town was at least 500 people long. They should have walked because they were in line in the sun.


Once on the tour it was mainly views of the ocean from the bus and shopping stops like this one.


Always have quarters and dollar bills for the bathrooms are not free. Another pretty public bathroom.


From the bus we saw many, yes many, iguanas up in trees. That was a surprise.


They also have cows that mow the lawn in cemeteries.


Near the boat Dan found these but we had no room in our suitcases so we left them behind.


This was the first dock where our ship was right across from another ship. This one from Germany was full of nudists who flashed us on our ship. I missed a great photo op dang it!


Tomorrow will be our last island and then on home. I've been working clay each day so I'll have lots of photos this week of the Wish List projects.

Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, the Ku hat comment is the best!

Great photos, thanks for sharing.

It sounds like the German nudists might inspire another mug????

TikiAno always fun things going on if you look for them.

LoriLovesTiki more like flashers having fun with our ships passengers. The captain of our ship called the captain of their ship to ask him to make an announcement asking them to stop because there were a few children aboard our ship.

kingstiedye my ancestors are from the UK (United Kingdom) and Kentucky. I must remember the hat incorrectly. Thank for the fix.

===========================================

I kept forgetting to mention this. Thank you hang10tiki and Janelle. I wore your glass necklace gift on the trip. I like them both a lot.




The last island and the last three days on the ship.


St. Thomas was just a bump in the ocean


and then we were there.


Luckily he never heard anything coming his way.


We took off in a bus and at the top of the hill we could see our ship docked.


The largest gift shop we ever saw was ready to take our money. Dan spied a display rack made of wooden tikis.


He took it all to the cash register to see if they would sell it to him.


He was one happy guy when they said yes. $50. As you can see here the tiki display was two sided.


One huge bottle. Nope we didn't bring home any rum. We barley had room for this rack.


Further up the hill we had another great view.


On the way back to the ship we passed through town. The driver called it one big jewelry box.


St. Thomas is in the U.S. Virgin Islands and so it was the U.S. Coast Guard they escorted us out of the bay.


All our tours were finished and now it was time to head home. We went to all the shows. This was a juggler who also skipped rope on a unicycle.


It was easy to enjoy just looking at the vast ocean.


The MC of all the entertainment was a good friend of the crocodile Hunter so he put on a lecture about his friend. It was very special. Dan and I liked him and his show so we were happy to see him remembered by someone who loved him.


Our last formal night. Dan dresses up well.


I kept hoping for lobster and it finally came on the same night as beef wellington. Chef Ramsey always yelled at cooks over this dish so I wanted to try it. Well I have to say it was better than the lobster which was also excellent. This was the best meal of the cruise.


Cirque De Sole, oh heck I can't remember how to spell it.


More ocean.


We arrived in Fort Lauderdale at 6 am and were off the ship by 7 am. That meant 6 hours in the airport until our first flight to head home. We had a very good meal at Chilli's.


Home at last. Dan took care of the luggage.


Thank you all for taking this photo journey with us. I've enjoyed choosing the photos to share and telling the story.
Thank you Woo Hoo Wahine for sending us by way of the Celebrity Eclipse, it couldn't have been a better ship. We enjoyed everything.

Our next trip will be to Don the Beachcombers for Marketplace. Woo Hoo and Soccer Tiki throw the best art party ever.

I'll start posting my clay work next. Cheers, Wendy

Looks like a fun trip! That is great that Dan was able to purchase that tiki rack. I can think of a thousand things he can do with that.

Emily and I went to Antigua for our honeymoon and had a great time. The Caribbean is a great place to take a boat through.

Stay Tiki my friend...

lunavideogames he's been hanging Tiki Tonie necklaces on the rack and some key chains. See below.
I bet you spent all your time on the beach?

VampiressRN I like snakes. This one was really heavy. I'm glad he showed me how to keep its mouth closed.

hang10tiki Dan said he kept calling her but he never heard her reply. Maybe the cannon's had dead batteries.
Dan also loves being the most interesting man in the world number two.

=============================================================

Here's a bunch of Misc. stuff I've been waiting to post.

Buzzy the world's best Chippin Male at an event.


Our waiter at Paesano's this week. Related?


=============================================================

Dan found a Maori business card holder a while back and decided the perfect card was the one for Soccer Tiki and Woo Hoo's event.


==============================================================

The Bowl that never repairs. More cracks showed up and Dan still loves this bowl and wants to display it. So I puttied the cracks and let them dry. I sanded it


and then painted to blend it with the glaze. Now it's back on the shelf.


===============================================================
We saw a turkey in the parking lot and that inspired Dan


to order a turkey sandwich at Claim Jumpers.


==============================================================

The ST. THOMAS tiki rack is now filling up.


==============================================================


Gotta run have some more fun and play with more clay. Cheers, Wendy

Saw lots of them in Puerto Rico and in the Yucatan. I was hoping to find a restaurant that served iguana but no such luck. I imagine it taste like rattlesnake, which taste like chicken. Could be why they call iguanas "tree chickens"
Dan cleans up real nice!

I can't get over the size of the ship! And that looks so relaxing just hanging out there on a private balcony overlooking the vast Caribbean Sea...


Dan is one sharp dressed man

The airline additional luggage charge must have been enormous!


Mahalo, Dan and Wendy, for all the great photos and for taking us along on your adventure

Tiki Hula, Dan said no cake because he's trimming.

===================================================
On the same day as Claim Jumpers we went antiquing. We found one case of tikis and


later Dan found a new, most likely made in china mug. It was heavy so he decided to purchase it.


I like old wooden items I can use with clay. These are the ones I bought this same day.


When we were in a Cancer Society store I found a wonderful CD rack for $40. I told Dan I had to have it. He said we had no room for it and I told him we did. We brought it home and I surprised him by putting it in the newest tiki room and by telling him it was for him to fill up.


He started by pulling tiki mugs out of the cupboards in the kitchen.


Oops he was so sad when he dropped one.


He started filling up the new unit.


He had such fun.


All done.


===============================================================

A Clay Day with Bullet aka Kingstiedye

Bullets Wish List request was a set of Frankoma Salt and Pepper shakers. You can find the story of these on Page 1 of this thread. Making these is a special gift from Joniece Frank a dear friend. Always a thank you to Traveling Jones for introducing us so many years ago.

Step one, pouring slip into the mold.


Step two, wait an hour and pour the slip out. Let it sit over night to completely drain upside down.



Bullet told me a description of a Bob he would like me to make. I had exactly what he wanted, color and carvings, in my personal collection. We made a trade so that Dan would be having a fun day too.



Step three, shave your head and face until completely nude. Return to open the molds.


Step four, gently remove them.


Step five, admire your work.


Step six, clean off the mold lines.


One done one to do.


Barrow a set of Frankoma salt and pepper shakers so that we could match up the holes on the tops.


Done.


Happy Camper.

To end a perfect day Dan and Bullet went looking for GROG. Inside joke if you've see past pages of this thread.



Thank you always for the visit, cheers, Wendy

PS rain in California we rejoice
