Labadee, Haiti

Good morning,

Here are a couple more images of Labadee, Haiti, a private port of call of Freedom of the Seas.

Above you can see some of the beach area as well as docks where tours originate.  If you look very carefully in the center at the top of the hill, you can see the supports for the zip line that travels down the hill to the beach on the opposite side of the island.  Beautiful!
Above is an image I zoomed to get the detail of the structures where weddings are held.  What a beautiful backdrop for a wedding!

Enjoy,
Lois

Helicopter Medical Evacuation from Freedom of the Seas

Good morning,

Today's images are of another helicopter medical evacuation from Labadee, a port of call of Freedom of the Seas.
Since the ship is tied up, the helicopter landed on the dock walkway to the island.
The ship's fire teams were at the ready should there be any problem near the ship.

The ship has a helipad on the bow, but since we are tied up, it is safer for the helicopter to land on the dock walkway.
Taking off....





 The patient is on the way to a hospital for more intensive care than can be provided on the ship.
 It's wonderful that we can enjoy travel, yet still be able to access medical care as necessary.

All the best,
Lois
