First Vacation in 30 years (Part 1)

in #life2 years ago

It has been awhile since I posted something due to family health issues and demands on myself. My wife is getting better, but she has a long way to go. She is able to help me more which takes pressure off of me. I am hoping cryptocurrency keeps going back up in value so I can seriously look at retirement. For now I am taking over my wife's in-home care of the disabled business. We have done this together for 25 years, but now I need to take the primary role.

Enough on that...I thought I would share some photographs from a cruise we went on 2 years ago, to Mexico. It was our first real vacation in 30 years. Enjoyed it enough we are looking at another one next year.

Where to begin? What better way to start than sunrise from our balcony in the ship:

Next up is 2 photographs of companions along the way. I must have taken 40 photographs to get two that were pretty nice:

This next one is of a tourist "pirate ship". I was hoping they would raise their sails, but we still enjoyed watching. Possible if we take the next cruise to same places we might try go out on it:

Next is a photograph of my daughter, son-in-law, and my wife Deborah:

Have to have at least one photograph of myself and my wife:

Here is a photograph of when we had our first shore visit in Puerto Vallarta :

Well everyone this is Part 1 of ? I have sorted through a lot of the photographs and have more to do a followup. I am still going through many more to find some particular photographs I thought I took. This was when I first started using my Canon Rebel T5. A lot of photos did not come out as well as I would have liked. Next cruise I will have my longer distance lens which could provide some fantastic photos, and more experience with my camera.

To close I would like to share a photograph of a young entrepreneur we met in Puerto Vallarta. He was selling gum (Chiclets) to the tourists.

I trust you enjoyed my first segment from our cruise to Mexico. I will try and be able to respond to all comments like I normally do. Be patient if I miss someone or am getting behind. If there is any spam I will not have time to respond. I am still extremely busy, but I have missed all the interaction after the post.

As always upvotes and resteeming is always appreciated.

Thank you so much sir. My heart-felt love for sir @r2cornell.

my pleasure sir. you are really a good man. we need you.

Hi @r2cornell. It is not easy to take charge of the house when you are not used to it, but I am sure you will be able to do the homework. I hope your wife improves, although I do not know exactly what she has.

As for your vacations and photos, they seem great to me. I live in a coastal area of Venezuela and the landscapes are beautiful. I hope you can travel to my country one day.

Thank you. I would enjoy a longer cruise and be able to see parts of the coastal area of South America. Something to check into

My wife has a number of illnesses, although the problem this time was related to early stage Kidney failure. It is improving, and now she needs to get more physically active to rebuild her strength.

I confess that a year and a half ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. In my country unfortunately I can not get my oral chemotherapy treatment, so I have not taken it for a long time. But my positivism and optimism keeps me on my feet and eager to get ahead. So I'm very confident that your wife is much better. You must take care of her and pamper her a lot, hahaha. And above all, be very calm and positive. Greetings from Venezuela.

Thank you for your kind words. My wife is a breast cancer survivor...it has been close to 20 years of being cancer free. She took t some oral medication (chemo), and it has caused more disabilities she has dealt with since. Maybe it is okay that you could not get those kinds of meds for long... Thank you for sharing @romelcordova

The side effects are terrible, you're right. I think I'll stop worrying so much about not getting them.
You have a very fighter wife.

thank you @r2cornell sir for your great expression about you and your family..
i hope..god will help you to do...
