...was celebrated by going on a trip to the Bahamas on a cruise ship!
We had wanted to go on a cruise for our honeymoon, but timing-wise it just didn't work out. What a special blessing that Lord gave us the desire of our hearts a year later and worked out the details enabling us to go for our first anniversary! We had such a wonderful time! Nine amazing days to relax and enjoy time together, find a few new adventures, discover new foods, and delight in God's beautiful creation.
First stop: Key West, Florida
We saw the amazing butterflies, enjoyed the lil' touristy shops, climbed all the way up to the top of a lighthouse...and found ourselves ready for a snack!
And a cookie hit the spot...
...a half a pound of cookie, to be exact. [grin]
CocoCay was another island we stopped at for the day.
While walking along the beach, we found this huge starfish! The water was so clear it was easy to see fish and other wildlife. (Though it didn't enable Dan to see the stingray buried in the sand...and he stepped on it!)
I love this man!
...and a very blue ocean!
"Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits...
Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies..."
