All Dressed Up!

Ducky is back home all dressed up in a black tie with time on his hands before his next adventure!

Any ideas? In 25 days he is off to Jamaica!

Thank you again Chuck and Sondra!

Bahama Rama!

Thanks to Chuck and Sondra Dodgen, Ducky is exploring more of the world. They schlepped him along on their cruise to the Bahamas visiting Freeport, Nassau and Half Moon Cay from Port Canaveral in Florida!

Scattered like dabs of possibility on an adventurer’s palette, the Bahamas are ready-made for exploration. Just ask Christopher Columbus, he bumped against these limestone landscapes in 1492 and changed the course of history. But adventure didn’t end with the NiƱa, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. From pirates to blockade dodgers to rum smugglers, wily go-getters have converged and caroused on the country’s 700 islands and 2400 cays for centuries.

Uh huh!

Ducky's voyage onboard the Carnival Ecstasy

"Fresh conch shells for sssaaaaale!"

Gracious hosts, Chuck and Sondra Dodgen

Sorry Sondra, there is NOOOO way this photo is getting cropped! :-)

Making friends!

Half Moon Cay
Located on 55-acres of the 2,400-acre Little San Salvador Island, Half Moon Cay has been rated as "Best Private Island" by Porthole Cruise Magazine for the past four years. An international bird sanctuary in the Bahamas (only two percent of the island is developed), the beauty and serenity of Half Moon Cay is second-to-none.

Horseback riding!

A surefire way to get back to the ship?

Paradise found!


Finding an 'old' friend?

Spectacular sunsets included!
