Cruising

The whole family, Jim’s Dad & Jim, my Mom and me, Jim’s sister Debbie and her husband, Bob – went on a cruise this weekend.  It was an event arranged by the Parkinson’s Research Foundation – with lots of seminars and activities for learning about and dealing with Parkinsons disease, including Jim’s Dad. 

 

We boarded on Friday, cruised to the Bahamas overnight and saw the sunrise at Nassau.  Saturday, all but Jim Sr. took a shore excursion to Paradise Island and the Atlantis hotel.  It was a beautiful day.  Then, the cold front came in Saturday night with a vengeance!  The seas were to stormy to allow for their normal tender to a private island.

 

Here are the pictures:

 

I didn’t attend too many of the Parkinson’s seminars, but one was an Introduction to Wii!  How quickly that device is gaining acceptance in all circles – young and old, for fun and serious endeavors.
