The Sail Away
Here we are! Married 45 years and decided to take a second honeymoon to celebrate!
Our first was quite short but a two day trip to Carmel California, a short drive away from where we were married.
We took our car across the state and visited family, then took the train down to Miami!
Here is a short little video of the train ride
We boarded the Norwegian Pearl
And explored a bit. The decks were all painted differently
This is the Lido Deck
We are on our way!
See the cute pilot boat? The City of Miami is in the background.
The buildings are fabulous and we had a
wonderful window seat in the air conditioned lounge to enjoy the Sail Away
Miami Beach up close!
After we had gone out to sea Bill and I walked up to the Sail Away party up on the top deck
The Steep Canyon Rangers were playing
This band won a Grammy for their latest album this year
They also play and tour with Steve Martin
We lucked into a charter cruise where it was a Bluegrass Music Festival and
most of the passengers had purchased expensive tickets that included shows all day and night for the
four day trip. We picked up an unsold room for peanuts.
We didn't have a pass to go to the bluegrass shows but did enjoy the free shows out on deck during all three Sail Aways.
