Carribean Cruise Prt. 2 (St. Thomas and Puerto Rico)

I've been hit with a lot of cravings lately, and as usual I gave in to them quite completely. My latest is apples and peanut butter, which I tackled readily with a large spoonful of all natural peanut butter and an organic apple. You can get this preservative-free peanut butter that's made with just peanuts and sea salt, no sugar added, at Costco and it's pretty great. The first time I tried it I didn't really like it since I'm so used to peanut butter filled with sugar, but then I started to really taste the peanuts coming through and now I love it.

Also craving steamed broccoli like mad. And chocolate. Not sure 'bout that combo though... bacon and chocolate sounds a helluva lot better. But bacon and broccoli? That I can do!

Now on with more pictures of the cruise!
I don't have that many pictures of St.Thomas, since we went snorkeling and I don't have an underwater camera, so here're some shots I took as we left the port with our tour guide.

We went snorkeling, kayaking, and hiking. It was a super fun and tiring day, especially because I went for a refreshing early morning run and watched the sun rise.

Puerto Rico:

We went on a tour of the Bacardi rum distillery first, had many free samples of rum and coke as well as a bartending lesson in how to make a mojito.

The Bacardi bat symbol! Maybe the creators of Batman got drunk on Bacardi one night and dreamed up a comic book superhero with that symbol.

Into old San Juan- we visited the castle and then went shopping!

And that's it! I didn't take any photos in Grand Turk since it was just beaches and tourist shops. Hope you enjoyed it!
