There's No Christmas Yet!!!

Getting into the Christmas mode this year has been difficult....but it's not because I'm blue or depressed. It's because I was in the Islands, Mon, and haven't quite gotten back in the swing of things at home.
With friends, I cruised out of Galveston to Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel.
While chilling in Mexico, Christmas trees and baking cookies was far from my mind.

Beside relaxing we had some adventures....my travel companion, Fredna and I enjoyed traversing on a zip line over the Jamaican jungle! (and yes, her father's name was Fred and she wasn't a boy...so thus, the name Fredna...I think it's cute)
We cruised in jeeps and got to see a lot of the islands that most do not when they stick to the main roads.
We even tried Jamaican Bobsledding. It's sort of like your own personal roller coaster ride, but you have the options to brake (by hand). We all went FULL TILT and it was a blast.

We visited a cool Eco-Park in Xcaret....near Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. It was a cross between a zoo and a water park, next to a beautiful beach. We saw jaguars, anteaters, huge turtles and inner-tubed on an underwater ground river, Doing all this on the day when Houston had a freak snowstorm...but I wasn't too upset that I had missed it! And since I love all things COLORFUL, I thought this bus was cute. Do you?

Cozumel had put up a Christmas tree.....it took a while to get used to tropical versions of all the Christmas carols. :)
So....Feliz Navidad to all...(Merry Christmas in Spanish!). I had a wonderful trip but am now ready to make it feel like Christmas around here. My tree went up last night and today I'll do the rest of my decorating. So....It's FINALLY beginning to feel/look a lot like Christmas has arrive in "Susan's Colorful Life"! Happy Holidays to All my sweet blogging friends........Ya Mon!!!

  2. Thanks for stopping by today. It's always nice to meet a fellow Texan blogger. I enjoyed your Galveston post. We went down back in September and were surprised how good it looked. I'm looking forward to going back next year to see more progress.
