Day 4 we arrived in Labadee, Haiti which is one of Royal Caribbean's private Islands. The very first time we went to Labadee was in 1989. I can not believe the changes throughout the years. It now is built up, but still a very beautiful place to spend the day. The cruise line cooks a BBQ on the beach and its amazing. This is one day that is so laid back and enjoyable. In years past we would have to tend from the ship to the land now we walk off the ship and walk along a cemented walk way. I much rather walk than to have to wait for a tender.
The mountains are just amazing. I just feel so badly that Haiti is so poor and they are still very much suffering from that horrific earthquake. We did loose a very wonderful local teen that was volunteering over there.
This is basically how the natives travel and work. These two guys were rowing so hard and fast, they were going much faster than the ship was. They sure do put in long hard days.
This is where we set up for the morning. I just love getting to the beach early and then leave at the hottest part of the day and be done with the beach.
Hubby and I just love to walk and explore.
We found this beautiful end of the Island, that not many walk to
The views were incredible. We did run into a wedding couple, with their photographer taking pictures. Not sure if they married on Labadee or just chose there for their pictures.
As you can see the ship in the background. You could see her from many areas of the Island. She sure is pretty.
Here you can see the walkway that I told you about.
We also ran into a gentleman that was from our area and he offered to take our photo. He was out walking around while his wife baked herself at the beach. LOL
The next stop will be
San Juan Puerto Rico.
Hope you enjoyed our day In Labadee.
